If you want to break out of the expat bubble and work on your Spanish skills at the same time then signing up for a language exchange is the way to go. These can be organised in groups through sites like Meetup or you can opt for one on one exchanges. The beauty of this is that you kill two birds with one stone; on the one hand you pick up the language and on the other it presents the opportunity of making friends with a local.
