Default 27 yr old single woman relocating from NYC to PR 3-4 months. HELP!!

I am planning to move to San Juan or viejo San Juan. I speak a bit of spanish but understand it 100%. I just need advice and havent got a clue where to begin. Any resources will do.

I have a BA in psychology and I perform spoken word poetry monthly here in NYC. I just feel like we live once and I dont have any real committment here holding me back so why not. I have 6 yrs experience with children with disabilities but prior to that I did customer service.

Any help could do..
How did you ladies do with your move?

Thank you and God Bless!!
BTW, I am from the Bronx so I know if I can make it here I can prob make it anywhere!!

Hard to say, the OP hasn't posted since last Aug. She was also looking at Philly and LA.

I've found the west side of Puerto Rico to be less expensive. Check out craigslist Puerto Rico rentals, cars etc. Great source! Also check out facebook groups.

Perhaps work on your education while down there. PR doesn't charge out of state tuition and has much lower rates then most of the mainland. You can get grants and low interest loans to supplement your income or "lack there of" while getting yourself established.

The "practice simpler living" part caught my eye... For the benefit of others (as I caught this post a little late) places like Rincón, Aguadilla (Road 110 and Ramey area) and Isabela (Jobos beach area) have their good share of Americans and surfer types looking for such a living. You may just feel right there. For a more local experience, still great, check out Cabo Rojo (Boquerón area), Guánica and La Parguera. The places mentioned can be quite popular, thus crowded, during some seasons (summer mostly). If you're not into the beach, and don't mind winding roads, then head to the mountain towns of Aibonito, Jayuya or Lares. Keep in mind that Puerto Rico is not the mainland and things you take for granted (like uninterrupted utilities, road courtesy, and business formality) may not be there. Good luck.

There are interruptions in utility services in the states... >_>

Especially with constantly shifting weather patterns. The level of utility interruptions in PR is unquestionably at the same level as on the mainland. **** happens.

Neither of us has any evidence to back up our claims so we'll have to stick it like this.

The exact same rules apply to road courtesy. Roads create some of the most selfish people, but surprise! this happens everywhere on the mainland.

Give us an example of what you mean by business formality.
