We started building our home in San Juan Del Sur August 2013. It will be exciting to have a new adventure especially since we are empty nesters for the first time this year. Lots of lofty ideas …. get fluent in Spanish, exercise regularly, keep track to see what the cost of living will be, meet new people, explore the country, do some significant socially useful volunteer work…oh… and last but definitely not least…..enjoy and relax. The plan is to live and rent out the separate suite in our home for ½ the year and to live in Canada the other half. We leave in 2 days and I am avoiding packing.
