Good morning Costa Calida Forum Members, 

Thanks for accepting my request to join the forum, I will apologise in advance for the lengthy post that follows 😂

We are a family of four, myself and partner, a daughter of 12 (going on 21😂) and son of 9. Currently living in Javea (Costa Blanca North) and been here for 4 years, although a beautiful place to live it's very expensive so looking to relocate to a new area. My partners father has a holiday apartment on the Taray development in San Cayetano so we have a basic knowledge of the area and have visited a few times. 

So a few questions for you all... 

Are there many families like us in the area? How are the local spanish schools? Are there any job prospects available?Both children are fluent in Spanish and Valenciano but do need English friends are there many about? Are there many activities /clubs for children?

Finally do you think that this would be a good area for a family like us to relocate to?? 

Sorry again for the length of the post, but all advice and tips would be greatly appreciated 

Thanks in advance Gordon

Initial reaction is that I would be surprised if there is much difference in living costs - housing may be cheaper but that is a once-only buy.

You don’t say what you do for a living, but certainly the Mar Menor is either agriculture or tourism, and unemployment is high.

Cost of living is less expensive than the Javea, the Murcia region has always been less expensive going back to the days when it was kept a poor region by a certain dictator, however since the motorways were introduced and Murcia was opened up, so to say, the housing and commercial expansion has made the region very affordable and attractive to many Spaniards and European immigrants.

Depending on your language skills there is employment available in many sectors, you could always contact one of the employment agency's in Murcia city, there is a Manpower office in Calle. Abenarabi, 5, bajo C, 30007 Murcia, when I lived around the corner from there they always had plenty of work, there is also another one about 2 mins walk away on the corner of Abenarabi and Juan De Borbon sorry cant remember the name.

However before actually making the move I would look around at the different areas available and not be to isolated.

Hope this helps
