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 Venezuela. They wrote...

"Expats in Venezuela often find the local culture to be quite different from what they are used to. The language barrier can be a challenge, as Spanish is the primary language spoken in Venezuela. Additionally, the country's political and economic instability can make it difficult to adjust to life in Venezuela. Furthermore, the cost of living is high, and the availability of goods and services can be limited. Finally, the cultural norms and expectations can be difficult to navigate, as they are often quite different from those of other countries," remarked another expat who made the move to Venezuela.

"There were a few...supplies at the grocery were sometimes little to none. You could go on any day and there would be no milk, no butter, certain types of meat..as well as household/kitchen items. Getting used to 'armed' guards at certain locations..like the grocery or your local panaderia. There were sometimes water shortages that were supplied into your home..and running the water through a tank/pump system was sometimes frustrating. Two of the hardest things for me were the amount of garbage that was dumped anywhere.. and seemed everywhere. And there seemed to be very little compassion for animals..particularly dogs and cats. I saw many hungry and un-cared for dogs. It was heart-breaking," explained one expat living in Porlamar, Venezuela.
