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 Tamarindo. They wrote...

"Expatriates in Tamarindo often find the language barrier to be the most challenging aspect of the local culture. Costa Rica is a Spanish-speaking country, and many of the locals do not speak English. Additionally, expats may find it difficult to adjust to the slower pace of life in Tamarindo, as well as the lack of modern conveniences that they may be used to in their home countries. Furthermore, expats may find it difficult to navigate the bureaucracy of the local government, as well as the cultural norms and expectations of the local community," remarked another expat who made the move to Tamarindo, Costa Rica.
