What are some typical ways to socialize, either with local people or with other expatriates? Are there groups or clubs that you can recommend?

Go across to the U.S. or hang out in Rosarito I suppose if you want American friends. Locals are everywhere, so just go out. There aren't expat or diplomat groups like in other posts. If you're religious or have a hobby you can find a group that way. - Nov 5, 2017
Museums, theater, opera, concerts, shopping, clubs, tequila bars. - Mar 25, 2015
Eat at restaurants and drink. Family is big here, and expats seem to either cross or have bbqs, etc. - Apr 30, 2014
Go out to eat, VIP movie theaters, dinners together. - Feb 15, 2014
Some house parties, restaurant gatherings. Again, good nightlife options on both sides of the border. - Apr 4, 2011
There are lots of activities to do, you can have a very full social life here and in San Diego. - Mar 5, 2011
People do not entertain very often, but many single people are out at bars on either side until all hours of the night. - Aug 11, 2010
San Diego seems to be the entertainment/social life of choice for many expats - Mar 11, 2008
