How do I meet people in Mexico?
When we asked people living in Mexico about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded...
"Go to a restaurant and talk to the people at the table beside you - talk to a anyone. It is natural and almost expected here in PV. Something I would never do in my original home of Vancouver," explained one expat living in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
"Expats in Mexico often join social clubs, language classes, and online forums devoted to helping foreigners adjust to life in Mexico. Additionally, many expats will connect with local expat organizations such as the International Newcomers Network, which coordinates events and activities for expats around the country. Another way for expats to meet people is by becoming involved in social volunteer work, such as helping out at a local soup kitchen or animal shelter. Many cities, particularly touristy destinations, also have local arts and music scenes that expats can become involved in. Finally, Mexico is known for its vibrant nightlife, so expats can often make friends while out at bars, clubs, and cultural events," said another expat in Mexico.
