What we're about

Do you find it difficult sometimes to feel at home on this island as a foreigner? Or maybe you're from here, but you were raised differently than most other Puerto Ricans? Or worse yet, you're bilingual but your thought process is in English (or any other language), and you have to think for a while before you can respond in Spanish with islanders. Wouldn't it be awesome if you could arrive at a party and know that there will be people who understand where you're coming from and be open to your conversations, even if you're still learning how to speak Spanish?

The truth is that many of us who haven't been raised in Puerto Rico, or under the Puerto Rican culture find it hard to hold a conversation with the majority of people on this island. Even if you know Spanish very well, you will soon feel that it's hard to relate to the same interests. Until now that is...

Join us! We will schedule group events where Outlanders like you can Meetup! Whether you are Asian, Mexican, Russian, or Puerto Rican, as long as you feel like you'd rather have conversations beyond the scope of the local crowd, you're very welcome to join. Make new friends! Meet other like minded people! We will take your suggestions to plan trips and Meetups. Isn't it about time that we got together to share our thoughts? This group is not only intended for bar hopping and getting drunk, but also for trips to wherever you feel like going (Beaches, Caverns, El Yunque, Caja de Muertos, wherever!)... Suggest it, we'll plan it, and we'll go! This island is full of adventure, it's just the people who have been misplaced. So let's find each other! As long as you feel like you're an outsider in a place where everyone else seems soooo different, you're in.

We do have some strict requirements to join this group: You must be able to speak English. This means you must answer all the Introduction Questions IN ENGLISH. Your answers will be evaluated to see if they are in line with the core values of this group. You must be over 21, and you should be expressive and courteous when answering the Membership Admittance questions. Admittance Requests with answers that are less than a few words in length will be disregarded, and we reserve the right to deny and/or remove any member as we see fit based on our own criteria. We highly recommend that you not disclose any information that is personal or sensitive in nature, and we ask that you use common sense when interacting with other members of this group.

By joining this group, you assume any risk, and take full responsibility and waive any claims of personal injury, death or damage to personal property associated with the activities and events organized by this group.
