We went down for 2 months, to try out the water as they say. I really thought I would like to live there and thought my husband would also - once he stayed a while. We had been 3 times before, but vacations and living there are very different. I enjoyed the time but the place gets very small after a few weeks. We both worked a bit while we were there at 1/2 what we would make in the States and if we had worked full time I am sure they would not have paid as well as they did. We made friends and friends from the States visited. In the end we were both bored. All that said I still love the place. Go for a couple months Coolcat and then see what you think. Enjoy

Hi there!Thanks for the reply.Yes,i think a few month stint would be key(caye)lol in discovering the real lay of the land.
What did you guys do for work while you were there?As soon as a "real" spa opens up there,I know I can make some money as a massage therapist.

Coolcat, THink the key word here is"work permit". You can't just move down and go to work without one.

We both did some teaching (adults). We both have some needed skills, which we taught. My husband had arranged to do this ahead of time and the folks just did not get his permit. As time went on it became a bit more scary (not having the permit) as there are no secrets on a small island.
I did some teaching as a voluteer and then at the end they paid me. Sorry, I am being evasive about where we worked - there might be 3 people in San Pedro who don't know. Don't want anyone to get in trouble. You can email me if you wish pmorrill@indy.rr.com Indygal

coolcat: do not make the mistake of thinking you can move to AC and get a job. Some have, but many, many have found out the hard way that getting a work permit can be very difficult and the repercussions of not having one are not what you want to experience.
If you can come to AC and live without having to work, come on down. If you feel you will need to generate income while there, you best get your ducks in a row before coming or be ready for a potentialy bad experience.

Sorry if this is not what you wanted to hear, but it is what you need to hear.
