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 Coronado. They wrote...

"Expats in Coronado often find the language barrier to be the most challenging aspect of the local culture. As Spanish is the primary language spoken in Coronado, many expats find it difficult to communicate with locals and to understand the nuances of the language. Additionally, expats may find the local customs and traditions to be unfamiliar and difficult to adjust to. For example, the concept of “mañana” (tomorrow) is often used in Coronado, which can be confusing for expats who are used to a more punctual culture. Finally, expats may find the local cuisine to be quite different from what they are used to, as it is heavily influenced by the Caribbean and Latin American cultures," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Coronado, Panama.

"Expatriates often find adapting to new cultures and customs the most challenging part of living abroad. This can include learning a new language, understanding cultural norms and etiquette, and dealing with cultural barriers. In addition, finding employment in a foreign country can be difficult due to lack of knowledge or contacts and visa and residency requirements. Other challenges may include navigating a different healthcare system, accessing services such as banking and dealing with bureaucracy, making new friends and finding a home, and dealing with the anxiety of being so far away from family and friends," commented one expat who made the move to Coronado, Panama.
