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

"As far as meeting people, I think you'd have an easier time in Kingston -- lots of social clubs, nightlife, expat organizations, Lots of Jamaicans go to church, an underrated place to meet people. Jamaicans are quite friendly so once you meet a couple people you'll likely meet their friends as well," explained one expat living in Jamaica.

"Expats in Jamaica often join clubs and activities such as golf clubs, wine clubs, and country clubs, where they can socialize, network, and take part in special events. Additionally, there are many informal meetups, such as pub nights, outdoor activities, and beach days, that expats use to make connections. Expats can also join cultural events at local music and arts venues, or attend lectures and open discussions on Jamaican history, culture, and politics. For adventurous expats, joining a local sports team such as soccer, cricket, or cycling can be a great way to make friends and learn about Jamaican culture and customs. Finally, using online and mobile apps to find locals and other expats provides an easy way to connect with the larger Jamaican community," said another expat in Jamaica.
