How do I meet people in Montezuma?

When we asked people living in Montezuma about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded:

"None are necessary to meet others here. It's very easy to interact with others in Montezuma. Heck, just walk into Mega Super or walk down to the beach or take a break in the park. Getting involved at the Turtle sanctuary would be good. Take a Spanish class, or a yoga class or get involved with animal rescue. You'll meet plenty of people," said another retiree in Montezuma.

"If you know how to play an instrument, I recommend volunteering your time with the SINEM children's orchestra, a lot of expats teach in this program all through out Costa Rica," commented one retiree living in Montezuma, Costa Rica.
