Hi there!

I just moved to Playa a few weeks ago from Guadalajara with my boyfriend.. and I'm having a little trouble meeting people! I work on my computer see.. and am pretty shy when it comes to just stricking up a conversation with people in bars.. so I was wondering if there were any social groups or if people had suggestions for art classes or something similar.. or if someone would just like to grab a drink sometime?! haha

I know this sounds kookie but you may want to check out the local markets that go on weekly in Playa. Most of the people who go there are English speaking expats and it's very much a social gathering time as much as it is a shopping opportunity. Here is a list of all the markets that go on during the week with locations.

Eco-Markets in Playa del Carmen

There are also a handful of bars where the expats tend to gather.
Wah Wah Beach Bar - on the beach at calle 2
Bad Boyz Beach Bar - on the beach at calle 4
Zenzi - on the beach at calle 10
La Ranita - Calle 10 between 5th and 10th
The Dirty Martini - Av. 1 between Calles 10 and 12
PG's Sports Bar - Av. 1 at Calle 26

This should get you started! Welcome and good luck!
