  12. This info is current as of mid May, I suggest you contact John, . He should be able to help you out.

  13. Hola, thanks for your time putting this list together. Are the meetings you've listed here english or spanish speaking? I have tried to email the intergroup office, but no response. Maybe because i don't speak spanish?! Please let me know.

  14. They should all be in English. Maybe try calling another group?

  15. I will be in Miraflores in May and would like a recommendation on an English speaking meeting. Can anyone suggest a meeting and know their times?

  16. There are a couple in Miraflores. Look at the first three listings.

  18. Thank you so much for posting all of this. Here is an update as of today, June 21, 2012.

    This is an English speaking meeting

    GOOD SHEPHERD (GRUPO AA in English).
    Adress: Av. Santa Cruz 491 MIRAFLORES /
    Contact: Bob D Telephone:. 4411947 Tuesday and Thursday 7.00pm to 8.00 pm

    Carmelitas Catholic Church: The info on this is totally correct, however, it is not an English speaking meeting. This should not stop anyone from going, as the group is very welcoming and understanding, and many members do speak and uderstand English, but the meeting is in Spanish.

    Av Ricardo Palma 1020 Miraflores: This address no longer exists, I beleive. I searched for it for quite some time, but 1018 and 1022 are the only addresses. the building may have been torn down. This was somewhat confirmed by some Carmelitas members.

    In my experience? Go to Carmelitas and ask for info on other meetings. Very good people, as one can usually expect at an AA meeting.
