We've tried to include all expat groups in the Costa Brava plus a few more useful contacts. If there's a link that you think we should show, then please let us know. The high-speed train brings the great metropolis of Barcelona much closer, so we've included one or two links there as well. One of these days, we'll arrange these links in alphabetical order! (I haven't updated this page for several years so some of it is probably out of date! Steve)
