San Juan Video Trailer

This is the trailer for our 59-minute San Juan del Sur Video. It includes interviews with eight expats explaining what it’s like to live in San Juan.

To find out what living in San Juan is really like, get our San Juan Video. It's the next best thing to being there... maybe even better if you're uncomfortable asking people you've just met all about what it's like to live where they live.

"I have all the videos and think they are all great. After watching one of them, I could tell I wouldn't want to live there. What a cheap way to discover that I will want to look elsewhere. Keep up the good work!"

"We liked the real-life dimension: the sense that you're hearing testimony of actual expat experiences, both pro and con. The overview of some of the restaurants, the parks, the scenery, the costs and the challenges offer valuable insights into a potentially life-changing/life-enhancing relocation."
