What do expats find most challenging?

Answer this Question

We asked expats and digital nomads what they find the most challenging about the local culture in Marbella. They wrote...

"One of the most challenging aspects of the local culture for expats in Marbella is the language barrier. Although many locals speak English, the majority of the population speaks Spanish, and it can be difficult for expats to communicate with locals without a basic understanding of the language. Additionally, the local culture is heavily influenced by traditional Spanish customs, which can be difficult for expats to adjust to. For example, the siesta, or afternoon nap, is a common practice in Spain, and it can be difficult for expats to adjust to the slower pace of life. Finally, the local cuisine can be a challenge for expats, as it is often quite different from what they are used to," said a member in Marbella, Spain.
