What do I need to know about living in San Pedro La Laguna?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to San Pedro La Laguna, they said:

"Expats considering retiring in San Pedro La Laguna should be aware that the local language is Spanish, so it is important to have a basic understanding of the language before moving there. Additionally, the cost of living in San Pedro La Laguna is relatively low, so expats should be prepared to live on a budget. It is also important to note that the town is quite small and remote, so expats should be prepared to live without some of the amenities they may be used to.
