horse and rider on beach, Gigante, Tola, Nicaragua – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThe number of expats living in San Juan Del Sur has to be in the tens of thousands now. They would be living in San Juan Del Sur and in the surrounding beach areas. Around here in Tola, more and more people are moving here every day, setting up new businesses, and starting up their families here.
 
It is very easy to run into another expat if you are an expat moving to San Juan Del Sur. Expats here are usually fond of each other, so you will most likely meet a lot of other expats because the expat community here is pretty close-knit. So when you see an expat face, you can assume that he/she is a good old friend.

Expats San Juan Del Sur Nicaragua – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingRetirees in San Juan del Sur mostly come from Germany, America, and Canada. Some expats who have houses in San Juan del Sur live there for 6 months, move back to their countries or travel, and then come back to their houses in San Juan Del Sur. I would say about 10% of the expat population own houses both in San Juan Del Sur and in other places. They live in San Juan Del Sur seasonally.

Most of the expats in San Juan Del Sur are young people. A lot of people come to Nicaragua not to retire but just because they like it here. Some expats choose to live in San Juan Del Sur just to enjoy the surf. I’ve seen people who are 24 to 30 years old, who move in and buy a house or rent in San Juan Del Sur because of the surf. Only about 5% - 10% of expats are senior citizens who retired in San Juan Del Sur.
