The Top 6 Digital Nomad Cities in Latin America

The most popular hubs for digital nomads – people who work online and travel – tend to be in Southeast Asia, in cities like Chiang Mai (Thailand), Ubud (Indonesia) and Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam).

But there are many cities in Latin America that are also great places to base oneself as a remote worker. Here are the top six cities to keep on your radar.

Medellin

Medellin in Colombia is perhaps the most flocked to city in Latin America for digital nomads. It is very cheap to live and work remotely there. You are surrounded by the mountains, and near to the colourful town of Guatape.

Some excellent coworking spaces include Coecoworking, Work&Go Medellin, Global Express, AtomHouse, Coworking CoWfe, Siembra Coworking and The Office Coworking.


Baranquilla

This coastal city in Colombia may be more appealing to you than Medellin, especially if you’d rather be close to the beach. Also, it’s even more affordable to live there than in Medellin.

According to Nomad List, the price to live there as a digital nomad (staying short-term) is just over £600 a month, while for an expat staying there longer, accommodation and food will cost you £520 a month.

Buenos Aires

Although Argentina (and Buenos Aires especially) is on the pricier side when it comes to digital nomad hubs in South America, it is still a popular destination. You can indulge in Argentinian culture and enjoy the many sights of the city and the nightlife.

You’re also right next to Uruguay, as well as a cheap flight away from incredible nature, such as Patagonia further south and the weird and wonderful mountainous landscapes of Northwest Argentina.

Coworking spaces worth checking out include StartupM3, TEAMWORKS, Bambu Coworking, Freedom, Indie Coworking and MANAWA COWORKING.

Antigua

Antigua in Guatemala gets a 5/5 score on Nomad List. And what’s great about living in Guatemala is that you can do and see so much. You can check out Tikal, a major archaeological site of the Mayan civilisation, Semuc Champey (a beautiful series of tiered limestone pools) and Lake Atitlan (which is surrounded by three volcanoes).

Popular coworking spaces in Antigua include Serendipity Lab and Impact Hub Antigua.

Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen is in the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. It’s situated near Tulum, which tourists like to visit for its Mayan ruins, as well as its white-sand beaches and crystal clear turquoise water. Playa del Carmen isn’t far from Cancun, but it’s not so much of a party city.

Being based in Playa del Carmen also means you can explore the rest of the Yucatan Peninsula, including colonial towns such as Valladolid, which is surrounded by many cenotes (sinkholes or natural wells) and is near one of the seven natural wonders of the world – the archaeological site of Chichen Itza.

Coworking spaces include Nest Coworking, COWORK IN, Work Zone Coworking and Altus Business & Coworking.

Mexico City

If you’re more of a big city person, then Mexico City is a worthy choice. It’s a very affordable city and is packed with famous museums and galleries. You can watch Mexican wrestling, check out the city’s street art or go on a day trip to the ancient Mesoamerican city of Teotihuacan.

There are many coworking spaces, including WE-CO, PUBLICO, El 3er Espacio, The Pool, Spacioss Coworking and Tu-Coworking.


Of course, one of the general benefits of living and working in a Latin American city is that you can learn or improve your Spanish. Knowing a second language is extremely useful, and it could keep you ahead of the competition for any future roles you apply for.

    Hello friends, i want to use this opportunity to shear a testimony on how God directed me to a real loan lender who have transformed my life from grass to grace, from being poor to a rich woman who can now boast of a healthy and wealthy life without stress or financial difficulties. After so many months of trying to get a loan on the internet and was scammed the sum of $7,000 i became so desperate in getting a loan from a legit loan lender online who will not add to my pains,then i decided to contact a friend of mine who recently got a loan online, we discussed about the issue and to our conclusion she told me about a man called Mr James Robert who have a loan company in USA and he is the CEO JAMES ROBERT LOAN COMPANY So i applied for a loan sum of ($105,000.00) with low interest rate the loan was approved easily without stress and all the preparations where made concerning the loan transfer and in less than 24hours the loan was deposited into my bank account,i thought it was a joke until i received an alert from my bank that my account have been credited with $105,000.00. I became so happy that finally GOD have answered my prayers by directing me to a real loan lender who was able to grant my heart desires. big thanks to Mr James for making life reasonable for me so i am advising everybody who is interested in getting a loan to kindly contact him via email (james.funds31@gmail.com) that was how i was finally able to get my loan,i paid off my bills settle my debts,i bought a new car and now i am a business owner.

    ALL THANKS TO UPSTART LOAN AM NOW FINANCIALLY STABLE . upstartloan@yahoo.com I am Michelle Huxford from Casper, Wyoming. I was in a very chronic financial issue and terminal health situation some few weeks back. After all my search for assistance from friends and neighbors proved abortive, I feel there was no one who truly cares. I became so emaciated due to lack of good food and my 2 kids age 5 and 8 were not also good looking due to lack of proper care as a result of finance. One faithful morning I saw an old time friend of my late husband and I told him all I have been going through and he said the only way he could help was to direct me to a good loan agency that also helped him, He explained to me on how he was financially down and how he got boosted by this loan agency UPSTART LOAN INC ( upstartloan@yahoo.com ) who grant him 245,000 USD loan at an affordable rate. He further assured me that they were the only legit loan firm he found in the quest of seeking for loan after been scammed by various fake loan lenders online. He gave me their email: upstartloan@yahoo.com or text/call (574) 301-1639, That was how i applied and was also granted a loan and my life changed for the good. CONTACT THE ONLY GENUINE LENDERS( UPSTART LOAN INC) VIA email: upstartloan@yahoo.com or call +1 (574) 301-1639 to resolve your financial mess.

    I`m Charlie Bean and I live in Toronto Canada. I needed a loan to buy a house and I searched for a mortgage loan from all banks and I was denied and I loss hope of having my own house until I came across a post just as you reading my post now. I saw a post about a Financial Service Company who gives loan at 2% interest so I applied in STEAKLEY FINANCIAL SERVICES using their email steakleyfinancialservices@yahoo.com. And my loan was granted it was like a dream but was true and now am a owner of a house in Toronto and am paying the mortgage loan with no stress and I also requested if I can be granted a business loan and I was also granted. Now am living a happy life, I will advice you if you have an financial problems and you need money to settle it so you can pay with no stress just contact Steakley Financial Service at their email Steakleyfinancialservices@yahoo.com or number +1(512) 714-8010.

    FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH Life indeed is GRACE, I'am Daan Sophia currently in California USA. I would like to share my experience with you guys on how I got a loan of $185,000.00 USD to clear my bank draft and start up a new business. It all started when i lost my home and belongings due to the bank draft I took to offset some bills and some personal needs. I became so desperate and began to seek for funds at all means. Luckily for me I heard a colleague of mine talking about this company, I got interested although i was scared of being scammed, I was compelled by my situation and had no choice than to seek advise from my friend regarding this very company and was given their contact number, getting intouch with them really made me skeptical due to my past experience with online lenders, little did i know this very Company "PROGRESSIVE LOAN INC. was a godsent to me and my family and the entire Internet World, this company has been of great help to me and some of my colleague and today am a proud owner of well organized business and responsibilities are well handled all thanks to Josef Lewis of (progresiveloan@yahoo.com).. So if really you are genuinely in need of a loan either to expand or start up your own business or in any form of financial difficulty, i advise you give Mr Josef Lewis of Progressive loan the opportunity of financial upliftment in your life Email: progresiveloan@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565 and not fall victim of online scam in the name of getting a loan. thanks
