There is one post office in town and it is located in the P4 section of town, near the stadium. It is called the Officina de Correos and they are very nice.

Should you be Learning Spanish before you arrive?
When it comes to learning Spanish, we think it is helpful to at least have your basic manners and counting under your belt before you arrive. There are very few locals in town who speak English fluently, so do your best to speak the local language when you can. Once you arrive, there will be local options for Spanish language classes, but the options below can be done before or after you arrive.
Here are the tools we have used and recommend. Everyone has a different learning style, so that is why we are recommending a variety. Learning Spanish can be fun at any age.
