Well, if you’ve been to Portugal before, you would know that this country is filled with beautiful historic cities, world-renowned cuisine, breathtaking natural landscapes, some of Europe’s most spectacular beaches and the country’s incredibly cheap deals! The average cost of living in Lisbon is 47% lower than in New York and 55% cheaper than in London. So with the sun, sea, beautiful weather and a low cost of living, it’s no surprise that Portuguese people are so happy and that the country has also been recognized for the 4th time as the Best Destination in the World!
Now it’s a little bit more difficult due to COVID. As of November 2020, Wearing a mask is compulsory in shopping centers, shops, public transport, or enclosed areas. Currently, it is also mandatory to wear masks in public places including in the streets, beaches, or any outside activity. You don’t need to wear a mask if you are dining in restaurants and bars in open-air spaces. The Portuguese government is keeping an eye on the number of cases very frequently and may change policies where necessary.
However, there are many social/Intercambio groups that have moved online. Facebook is a great way to find these social groups and join the club. This is a great way to make Portuguese friends and practice learning the language.
The most obvious way to meet them of course is to also go there yourself! The Portuguese boarders are still open to tourists as to date but click here to stay up to date on the current situation in Portugal.

Thanks to Andreia Leite for the comprehensive and timely updates on the construction progress of the new development we purchased!Investor from the USA
Very helpful. Work with his heart. Mark is a very nice advisor.Investor from Morocco
Ryan was an excellent real estate agent, he really steered me in the right direction based on what I said was important to me. Living in another country, I wasn't as familiar with the city as he is. Where I thought I wanted to live and what I truly wanted were not the same. He took the time to listen and figure out the best spot for me, and we are very happy with it - far more than we would have been elsewhere.Investor from the USA
