Looking for Ex Pats in the Puerto Viejo Area

My wife and I will be staying at Shawanda Lodge 4/16-4/23 and would like to see if we could possibly meet up with some Ex Pats in the area to talk with as we are considering moving to the Puerto Viejo area

Lots of Expats in Playa Chiquita area where you are staying. You should have no problem hooking up, but this board would not be best place to reach them.

You might post here on this Puerto Viejo Facebook group. There are many members. http://www.facebook.com/#!/PuertoViejo?ref=ts

Almost every sunny day, if you go to Punta Uva, you'll find Captain Ron taking care of his beloved beach, stop by and say hello, he'll be the one with a Corona beach umbrella drinking Imperials.

Also do stop and eat at Jungle Love in Playa Chiquita, besides being one of the best restaurants in the Caribe Sur, the owners, Poppy and Yamu from San Francisco, are great people. Say hello from me, and do try their tuna.
