How do I find a place to live in Flores?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Finding a place to live in Flores, involves several steps. First, you need to determine your budget and the type of accommodation you're looking for. This could range from a simple room in a shared house to a luxury apartment or a standalone house. Next, you should research the different neighborhoods in Flores to find one that suits your lifestyle and preferences. Some areas might be closer to amenities like shops and restaurants, while others might offer more peace and quiet. Once you have a clear idea of what you're looking for, you can start your search. There are several online platforms where you can find rental listings, such as Airbnb, Booking.com, and local real estate websites. These platforms allow you to filter results based on your preferences, and you can often view photos and read reviews from previous tenants. Another option is to hire a local real estate agent. They can help you navigate the local rental market, arrange viewings, and negotiate contracts. This can be particularly helpful if you're not fluent in Spanish, as they can communicate with landlords on your behalf. You could also consider staying in a hotel or guesthouse initially, and then look for a more permanent place once you're in Flores. This gives you the opportunity to get a feel for the city and its neighborhoods before committing to a long-term rental. Finally, always make sure to view a property in person before signing a contract. This allows you to check the condition of the property, ask any questions, and ensure that it meets your expectations," explained one expat living in Flores, Guatemala.
