Do I automatically get an address just by living somewhere (ie: renting a house) or do I need to do to the correos postales offices or whatever and alert them that I am living there? Would it be best to rent a box even though the package could never fit into the box?
Since no one answered your question I would suggest for you to get a POB ( casilla) in the city where you intend to live. This is a yearly basis rental only. The boxes are small but intended only for letters and notifications that your package is waiting for you at the Post Office.
I'm from the generation of common sense, wisdom and unfiltered answers. Anótese, comuníquese, publíquese, archívese.
Please remind me the reasons why I decided to come back!
