Lifestyle

Lifestyle

Venezuela certainly offers much to the adventurous outdoorsy expatriates who like to explore nature. Its landscape is diverse and renown for its extraordinary natural blend of the tropical Amazon basin, the Great Plains, the grasslands and the awe-inspiring Andes mountain range. Venezuelan cities also generally provide the visiting urbanite access to all of his or her wants or needs including trendy cafes and clubs, fine restaurants, well stocked shopping malls, nice green spaces and cinemas. Unfortunately, however, Venezuela is currently not the safest option for the western expat, particularly in Caracas, Maracaibo and near the Colombian border. Dangers include armed robbery, kidnapping and carjacking. Also, while a number of locals are able to speak basic English (particularly in the urban areas), visiting internationals are encouraged to learn a bit of Spanish before relocating. This will make navigating throughout the country, shopping and doing business much easier.

Cost of Living

Cost of living

Residing in Venezuala is not bad on a budget. Indeed, according to Xpatulator.com’s July 2016 report, the cost of living in Venezuela is dramatically lower than the international average. This becomes apparent when one purchases any number of goods and services such as healthcare, transport, furniture, appliances, clothing, Internet rates, groceries, alcohol, restaurant meals and retail recreation. That said, housing accommodations are pricey. Still, assuming the western expatriate teacher is able to negotiate a fair remuneration from his or her international school employer, he or she will be able to not only live very comfortably, but will save a fair amount of money as well.
