Whether you are new to the Island, or have been here awhile, our various activities can give you a chance to develop friendships with others who live in Puerto Rico.  The Club sponsors a number of activities that encourage members to connect with each other while having fun.  A great way to do this is by sharing interests and hobbies with each other. Newcomer members are a rich source of support and friendship, and the activities offered are diverse, open to all members, and can ensure that no one needs to feel bored or isolated.

The following activities are currently available to any member of the Newcomers Club.  Keep in mind that new groups can be started according to the interests of the members.

This little island can feel big, so these groups enjoy activities centered around their “back yards.” Whether it’s meeting for lunch or hiking the rain forest, these active groups always welcome folks from any part of the Island.



Trips N Tours

Puerto Rico is a constant source of hidden treasures. This fun group visits both the well known and the not-so-well-known attractions in Puerto Rico. Some trips may include lunch and a professional guide.


Bunco, Mah Jong, Scrapbooking, Kids Korner, Dinner Group, Golf, Tennis & Movie Group

Over the past few years we have offered one or more of these activities, but presently we don't have any volunteers to coordinate.  If you're interested in starting up a group, contact a board member!
