What is life like as an expat in your area?

Answer this Question

When we asked people living abroad what life is like in their areas and how people spend their time, they said...

"Life for expats and digital nomads in Puerto Viejo is often described as relaxed and laid-back, with a strong emphasis on outdoor activities and nature. The town is known for its vibrant culture, friendly locals, and beautiful beaches, making it a popular destination for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. The cost of living is relatively low compared to many Western countries, and the local cuisine is both delicious and affordable. The town has a good internet connection, which is essential for digital nomads, and there are several co-working spaces available. The community of expats and digital nomads in Puerto Viejo is quite diverse and welcoming, with many social events and activities to participate in. The locals are also very friendly and welcoming to foreigners, making it easy to integrate and feel at home. Despite its laid-back atmosphere, Puerto Viejo also offers a vibrant nightlife with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. The town is also known for its commitment to sustainability and eco-friendly practices, which is reflected in the local businesses and lifestyle. However, it's worth noting that while Spanish is the official language, English is widely spoken in tourist areas, making it easier for expats and digital nomads to communicate. Overall, life in Puerto Viejo offers a unique blend of relaxation, adventure, and cultural immersion, making it an ideal destination for expats and digital nomads," commented one expat who made the move to Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica.
