San Juan - Post Report Question and Answers

Knowing what you know now, would you still move to this city?

Maybe. Because of my kids' school (Baldwin School) and the opportunities my kids were given academically, I would go there again for them. They really had opportunities we've never had in other places and it really helped my oldest get into the university of his choice. However, from a living perspective, I'm not sure I would go again. I didn't enjoy island life and I'm not much for the tropics so I may have a skewed perspective. However, many Puerto Ricans take education very seriously and I can't overstate how valuable my kids' experience on the island (at Baldwin School, in particular) has been to their educational achievement. - Jan 2014

No. Absolutely not. Given the crime, the cost of living here, and the fact that we no longer have a choice in schools there is no way we'd come back willingly. - Jun 2013
