Should I move to Puerto Rico?

edited January 2007 in Singularity Engine++
So I normally don't post shit like this because I understand people don't really give a shit, but I figured I'd ask for some advice anyways.

I just got an offer that I normally would never consider, but after thinking about it, I have never taken any real risks my entire life. I'm seriously considering trying this out.

I went to college down in San Diego, surfed 24/7. It became a very important part of my daily life. 4 years ago I moved to Reno, Nevada and I hate not being near the Ocean. I have a steady job doing commercial property management after trying and hating Real Estate. If I chose to leave, I would be giving up my career that took me a good 4+ years to build, a girlfriend, a nice car, some good friends, and that's about it.

So I have an offer to get a house down in PR on the beach, a job that pays starting in the mid 30's (which apparently is equivalent to 60k+ anywhere else in the US), and it's a two year commitment. I'm 26 years old and could surf year round down there. I have never been to PR, or really ever researched it at all. I have no idea what the living conditions are like or how it would compare to living in the US.

So has anyone had personal experience with Puerto Rico? Any suggestions, concerns, insults, whatever?

    Puerto Rico. You lovely island. Island of tropical breezes. Always the pineapples growing, always the coffee blossoms blowing.

    Puerto Rico. You ugly island. Island of tropic diseases. Always the hurricanes blowing, always the population growing. And the money owing, and the babies crying, and the bullets flying.I like the island Manhattan -Smoke on your pipe and put that in!

    I like to be in America!
    Okay by me in America!
    Everything free in America!
    For a small fee in America!

    I like the city of San Juan

    I know a boat you can get on.

    Hundreds of flowers in full bloom.

    Hundreds of people in each room!

    Automobile in America!
    Chromium steel in America!
    Wire-spoke wheel in America!
    Very big deal in America!

    I'll drive a Buick through San Juan.

    If there's a road you can drive on!

    I'll give my cousins a free ride.

    How can you get all of them inside?

    Yeah I worded that incorrectly. I didn't mean to demean the value of those things I was listing, just saying "these are all the things I could think about missing".

    The general consensus I'm getting here is that even considering it is batshit insane. Good to know. :|

    last time i was in PR vacationing, i got the impression that if you had even a modicum of self-motivation, you could be king of the whole damn island.







    i'm not saying that puertorriquenos are lazy, but, uh, you'd live like a freakin prince and can get all the cars and womens and bling you want.


    DO IT.

    I'll bring a TV to San Juan.

    If there's a current to turn on!

    I'll give them new washing machine.

    What have they got there to keep clean?

    I like the shores of America!
    Comfort is yours in America!
    Knobs on the doors in America!
    Wall-to-wall floors in America!

    When I will go back to San Juan.

    When you will shut up and get gone!

    Ev'ryone there will give big cheer!

    Ev'ryone there will have moved here!

    Ok, I'm done.

    Move to Puerto Rico.

    Don't do it

    Seriously, even the nicer parts of San Juan are still sup par compared to the US. The rest of the territory can't rise above the already low set level. There is culture, lots of it, but it's not worth giving up the good thing you have going in Nevada. If you're just doing this for the surfing, don't. If you actually want to experience moving away to an entirely different environment and learning/immersing yourself in the culture, do it.

    And I went back and edited country, that was a mistake.

    Well considering that a lot of Puerto Ricans that live in the United States don't know English, you might want to think about the language barrier
