Hi all. We are looking at Costa Rica for a month or so, but have heard mixed reviews about the internet situation.

We arenโ€™t looking for much speed really (.5-1mb/s here), but are wondering more about reliability as we are starting to do webinars and need internet that doesnโ€™t crap out every half hour.

We were thinking of Jaco as itโ€™s one of the more developed beach towns. Anyone have experience with the internet there?

I had a good apartment in Manuel Antonio with 2 wifi networks for reliability, also a 3g card from Kolbi (more on that here http://prepaid-data-sim-card.wikia.com/wiki/Costa_Rica). If you have just a WiFi in your hotel / apartment I suggest you get 2 or 3 SIM cards as Iโ€™ve observed outages on Kolbi in La Fortuna. Speeds on 3g are not the greatest but fit your requirements. Mind the longer ping though which means slight delays between you talking and other side hearing. Overall, situation with the internet in La Fortuna was much worse then on the coast. I hear the best is in the central valley, you can have 4g there, but we skipped it as not very exciting.

Hi there!
Any Digimads in Costa Rica between September 23 and October 22? Iโ€™m not sure where the winds will take me, but from the weather radar Iโ€™m actually leaning towards Limรณn with its favorable Caribbean climate during the rain season. On the Google map, it even looks bigger than Puerto Viejo, albeit I didnโ€™t find it on any nomad list โ€ฆ which actually
makes me quite curious (maybe itโ€™s a Wifi black hole or a center of crime?). Anybody got any experience there?

@freedio, Limon is the capital of the caribean in Costa Rica, its full of crime and a lot of poverty and you really donโ€™t have much to do there besides maybe spending one day there or taking buses to bigger cities (which you also can from Puerto Viejo), etcโ€ฆYou should continue to Puerto Viejo, its just 1 hour away and its a friendly and great place for tourists and nomads, you will love it

I am Santa Teresa in the pacific , let me know if you are around( I think the first week of October will fly down to Peru) โ€ฆits the rainy season but its not an issue at all, maybe rains an hour per day at night and you can go by 5 days without any rain.

Panama City is a lot of fun and I recommend going. Itโ€™s pretty expensive so we didnโ€™t stay long but we had a really good time. There are some newer hotels running nice deals so leave your options open when it comes to housing โ€“ we really enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus Panamรก Zen Hotel and it was way cheaper than any apartments we found.

Weโ€™re in Medellรญn now for another week and it really lives up to the hype. Definitely come here if you have a chance!

I had an amazing time in Santa Teresa and ended up staying in 2 different hotels over the course of 2 week. I ended up booking a week in Otro Lado and another week in Casa Marbella (because Casa Marbella was not available for the full 2 weeks). They were both fairly pricey for backpacking, but totally worth it ($60/night or so). I didnโ€™t end up using my phone internet because both hotels had decent internet. Keep in mind that in both hotels, the internet isnโ€™t always the strongest (or non-existent) inside of the rooms. That was fine for me because I spent my time in the common areas and on my porch. Casa Marbella was slightly more expensive, but had great ocean views. Otro Lado had more of a luxury backpacker feel and a social environment, but no ocean views. Iโ€™m not sure if Otro Lado has rooms with kitchens, but our room in Casa Marbella had a kitchen.

I dream of being a digital nomad? How do I do it?


by @programmingmark | 8mo 7 months ago | 2 comments

Hello digital nomad!

I dream of being an independent digital nomad. But it feels very elusive & unattainable with my success rate. In full disclosure, whilst I have dreamed about making money online since high school; I have not earned a single cent making money online. $0, nada, zilch!! On the contrary, I have spent a lot of time & money on books, podcasts. Even though I have spent a lot of time reading/listening to others, I do not have anything to show for it!

I have made attempts in the past to start an online business, but these fizzle out quite quickly when I do not see traction especially when the goal I have set myself is too high.

Instead of reaching for the ultimate nomadic lifestyle goal, I want to start much smaller. Really small! I am simply looking to make $50 profit per month from a new online business. Thatโ€™s it.

I need some advice from you please!

  • Is $50 profit too low? How long did it take you to earn $50 profit per month?

  • What is a good way of achieving this goal?

Thanks

How do digital nomads pay tax?


by @rodriigovieira | 8mo 8 months ago | 19 comments

Hello everyone! Iโ€™m new here and probably this is a very newbie question, but it doesnโ€™t leave my head.

How do you, nomads, pay your taxes? I mean, if youโ€™re constantly traveling, how are you going to pay taxes for a certain country if you are going to stay there a short period of time?
Or do you return to your โ€œoriginal countryโ€ and then pay them?

As far as I know of, Canadians donโ€™t pay taxes if they do not live in the country for 6 months.

Best place for Digital Nomad in Latin America?


by @rose_davis | 10mo 10 months ago | 7 comments

Hi!

I am planning to move to Latin America for 3-4 months (Oct-January). Iโ€™ve narrowed down 6 different places that I want to visit before committing to settling down, but Iโ€™d love to get some community input.

Here are the cities Iโ€™m considering:

  • Quito, Ecuador
  • Cuenca, Ecuador
  • Medellin, Columbia
  • Cartagena, Columbia
  • Antigua, Guatemala
  • San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala

The most important things Iโ€™m looking for:

  • Fast/easily accessible internet
  • Easy to meet other nomads/make friends in general
  • Safe for women
  • Some sort of spiritual community (Iโ€™m also a yoga teacher)
  • Easily walkable city

Anyone have any experience with these places and can give some insight? Iโ€™m also completely open to other recommendations.

Thanks!

How do we solve housing for digital nomads?

 

by @levelsio | 10mo 10 months ago | 61 comments

Thereโ€™s been a lot of discussion on this recently.

Nomads usually stay in hostels, hotels and short-term apartments. But itโ€™s all not very optimal.

Iโ€™ve heard people suggest getting funding and building a network of houses you can stay at for a subscription price (e.g. Bruno Haid is working on that).

I donโ€™t want do physical stuff, so Iโ€™m thinking of building a platform around making housing better for nomads.

What are the housing problems nomads face? And how can we solve them with products/services?

App/tool/service for nomads to bring things from another country?


by @brmolin | 12mo 11 months ago | 4 comments

I vaguely remember hearing about such a service before, but Iโ€™m drawing a blank on the name. Basically I left my tablet on a connecting flight in Europe, right before my main flight to Thailand. They have my tablet and are willing to ship it out for me, but people have warned me thereโ€™s a big risk of it getting โ€œlost in the mailโ€ if I ship something expensive like that to Thailand.

Iโ€™m wondering if thereโ€™s a service or community, where I can find a nomad whoโ€™s in Europe/heading to Thailand soon, so I can have it shipped to them in Europe and pay them to ferry it down here for me? I met someone in Budapest a ways back who had built something for this type of use-case, but I canโ€™t remember the name of it. Any help would be appreciated!

I have seen a lot of posts from different people across the world, but not even a single post from someone in India, who has been a nomad, either living within the country or traveling to another one.

Would definitely love to hear stories from such people. We are a couple traveling as social nomads who are trying to bridge the gap between the rural and urban societies in India. We have started out very humble and do not have much resources, so looking out for help from the community.

Here is the itinerary of our trip to Costa Rica; what would you recommend?


in Costa Rica by @nomad4 | 1yr 1 year ago | 2 comments

Hi everybody,

for those who read us in the past, we made some changes to our plan for this winter.
We decided for several reasons to postpone our trip to SEA, and decided to leave for a month in Costa Rica instead. Weโ€™ll still be travelling with our 2 kids and will need to work a little as well.

This is our itinerary for the month. 39

For those whoโ€™ve been there, how long do you think we should stay at each place?
We were planning roughly:

  • 1 week in Tamarindo/Nosara
  • 2-3 nights in Monteverde
  • 2-3 night closer to the Arenal volcano
  • 2-3 night in Quepos
  • Uvita for undetermined period of time

Do you think thereโ€™s a place (among the ones we cited or else) we should consider to stay a little longer?

Thanks :slight_smile:

Best way to connect with "local" nomads using Nomadlist?


by @migueltic | 1yr 1 year ago | 4 comments

Hi, Iโ€™ve seen that Nomad List offers different options that could work for connecting with other nomads that are in the same place as me (forum, Slack, user maps, matches and maybe even more options I havenโ€™t seen), but Iโ€™m not sure what is the best/recommended way to use all these options.

Should I use all of them? Start with a message in the forum and/or Slack?

Sending private messages to a lot of people feels a little bit โ€œaggressiveโ€. And matches are not based on current location if I understood it correctly.

By the way, I just arrived at Budapest :slight_smile:

Best American phone carrier for nomads


by @tylertringas | 1yr 1 year ago | 12 comments

Iโ€™m surprised this isnโ€™t anywhere on the forum yet. But just a pro tip for Americans about to start a nomad adventure. T-mobile offers unlimited SMS & data in 120 countries for FREE with any of their (already pretty cheap) plans. Itโ€™s ideal if you plan to be back in the US for any part of the year, but I honestly would consider it even if youโ€™re going to be entirely out of the country.

You get bumped down to much slower 3G speeds, but itโ€™s free and works as soon as you land. Can be super helpful before youโ€™ve sorted yourself out with a local SIM. I usually keep my T-mobile SIM in my iPhone all the time and then buy a local SIM and drop it in my pocket wifi for both laptop and iPhone when needed. I keep my local US number and just use it (itโ€™s like $0.05/min in most places) for important clients calls so they donโ€™t have to bother with Skype.

Iโ€™m not affiliated at all, just a happy customer. Anybody found a better deal worth mentioning?
