"Expats in Runaway Bay, often join local sports clubs, such as golf or tennis clubs, to meet new people and engage in recreational activities. They may also participate in community events or festivals, which are common in Jamaica and provide a great opportunity to interact with locals and other expats. Joining a local gym or fitness center is another popular activity among expats, as it allows them to stay fit while also socializing with others. Some expats may also choose to volunteer at local charities or non-profit organizations, which can be a rewarding way to give back to the community and meet like-minded individuals.
