Costa Rica has a wide variety of social, entertainment, and cultural activities available. There are several wonderful museums with high quality historical and cultural exhibits. Movie theaters abound and often show the most current movies with English dialog and Spanish subtitles. Costa Rica boasts a world-class symphony orchestra, and top-line pop artists and groups frequently give concerts in Costa Rica. There is an active Little Theater Group for expats, as well as many social and fraternal clubs, ranging from the American Legion Posts to a Wine Club, with much in between.
MEMBERS of ARCR receive a top notch, professional bi-monthly magazine, El Residente, which contains a list of many of the social and fraternal groups of interest to expats. The list is complete with information on where and when the groups meet and how to contact them for more information. Check out El Residente here: http://www.arcr.net/el-residente-magazine/
