3 Tips when Relocating to Puerto Rico

Updated: Dec 5, 2022

Have you taken the jump and relocated to Puerto Rico? Many families are moving to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. The relocation process can come with wonderful new experiences, and also some challenging ones. Relocating can bring both physical and mental challenges, that is why it is great to keep in mind some helpful tips to ease the process and remember you are not alone.

1. Embrace the beautiful island of Puerto Rico and its many treasures

After you are settled in, it's time to explore! Puerto Rico is full of culture, history and beautiful natural wonders.

• Check out local calendars for events, farmers markets, and festivals.

• Make time for play! Visit the many beaches and learn surfing, paddle boarding or snorkeling

• Visit El Yunque Rainforest, great for hiking and exploring waterfalls

Remember to stay hydrated and replenish electrolytes especially in the hotter summer months, as you adjust to the new climate.

2. Build community

Relocating is exciting but being away from family and friends can take a toll. It is easy to get stuck in a cycle of remembering how it is back home and forgetting to make time for new connections.

• Try making new connections by joining online groups, such as Facebook

• Look for facilities offering classes in your favorite hobbies or sports

• Get outdoors, go for walks or exercise 20 minutes a day to boost your mood and to meet locals or become familiar with your neighborhood

• Practice Spanish, there are many great apps available and practicing a language can help keep your brain's cognitive functions healthy

Remember building a new community can take time, be gentle with yourself and take time to connect back home with FaceTime, phone calls or sending letters by mail.
