  • Playa del Carmen

    I have only been to a couple of digital nomad spots around the world, but I must say I have been disappointed with PDC for several reasons. I am a coworking space kind of girl and even though there are a few here, they are all not great. Especially if you compare them to the spaces in Bali Canggu/Ubud for example. In PDC it was all about choosing the lesser โ€ževilโ€œ for me. They are okay, but I didnโ€˜t feel the same community vibes or very inspired in these places. The choices of healthy foo

  • Santiago

    Iโ€™ve been living in Santiago since 2019โ€ฆ and I complete agree with the review calling Santiago boring and expensive. Unless you already have friends here, save yourself money and time and look for other cities in Latam.

  • Puerto Escondido

    Been here about 3 weeks & staying another month. If you do your due diligence when looking for a hotel/hostel/airbnb - you can find places with good internet speeds. Casa Bonita has 100MB+, lots of AirBnbs have 10-20+. However, wifi can go down for the day in the whole town (plus 4G). So if you work a 9-5 might not be ideal. The weather on Nomadlist is incorrect - the coldest it gets at night here is about 25 & that's in December. In July it's about 32 at night.

  • San Francisco

    I've been living in SF since 2014 and I have to say Cost of Living is misrepresented. It's a lot more expensive now (2020) than posted. 1-bdr in center is $3,500-$4,000 + $200-$300 for parking + $100-$200 for utilities. Almost impossible to find month-to-month rent, so this is for 1-year lease. Coffee for two + a pastry is easily $20. Dinner for two never less than $50, unless it's fast food (+20% tips are expected) and if you want actually something good it's at least $100 for two. Airbnb is $1

  • Canggu

    Canggu is a great place to live. Im a remote worker and have lived here for most of COVID and then some. In total Im thinking something like 20 of the last 24 months! It is brilliantly priced for someone with a steady income who wants their money to go far. I spent about $3,000 USD living like a king with a prime location villa, private chef, the most expensive gym and spa membership, and eating out at least 10 times a week.
