What does it mean to find a community. Many people who are traveling are also looking for a point of connection. Here is a testimony from our caribeanscomunitycenter page on Facebook.
I just moved to Puerto Viejo and am trying to find my little “family” here. I stumbled upon CariBeans and saw their sign out front advertising yoga and Pilates classes amongst other classes. I told the owner I was a zumba instructor and was looking for a place to teach. He told me to come back on Friday at noon and all the instructors meet up. Well, I came back and went upstairs and was greeted by the most amazing warm and friendly people. I was invited to stay for the potluck lunch where they barter and swap items. A “cashless” economy as one put it. I’m telling you, they really have something going here. Some are farmers who bring food or flowers. All of them have a trade and after lunch I saw people giving chair massages and just relaxing and swapping stories. Being an expat I have a million questions and I learned so much from these kind people. I can’t wait to be a part of this movement!
