How can you locate

Postby woodchuck » Fri May 04, 2018 7:27 am

We may have found the perfect place for us in a pueblo outside Huancayo.
My problem is - how can I locate other expats for conversation & socializing.
This is not an issue in Lima, but we will be 10 hours away.
Any comments or suggestions greatly appreciated.

I bet that if it is a small community, everyone will pretty much know each other.. or at least, know of each other.. so by asking around you'll be able to find other gringos, if they exist at all. Maybe church workers and volunteers.

There are flights from Lima to Jauja

Jauja has a "new" Airport , amd from Jauja to Huancayo I am guessing is about 30-40 minutos by car

It's 50KM, so a little over 1 hour.

One option is joining a Facebook Expat group that Alan has mentioned before and possibly gaining some insight into meeting Gringos there.
