awesome picture
Looking at camping sites in Gran Canaria and feeling excited ๐Ÿ˜ Havenโ€™t slept in a โ›บ๏ธ since June
pretty awesome picture indeed! even more that you guys saw it in person.
Tips for finding a medium-term rental place? (example 3 months)
Too long for Airbnb/Booking.com but too short for Idealista/Fb listings :sweat_smile:
Best success rate so far is Airbnb hosts usually give me an extra discount when I message them. But it's difficult that a place is vacant for all the days I'm looking for ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
There are a few close to Pico de las Nieves.

Hi. I will be in Corralejo for the October 29th. It's my second trip there, probably not the last. Is there good places for coworking ? Could be a coffee shop with someone there :)
jjhzhnp Check out bidnbed, we have places in Lanzarote on there
sadly, no... all the coworkings there are garbage
I know there's a big Fuerteventura Slack going on, maybe someone here can connect you to it. From my experience, there are some DNs, but not really a key spot where people work from.
Is it safe to travel to Tenerife right now ?
I hope so, Iโ€™m flying tomorrow

๐Ÿ›ฌ hwzffa just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ Tenerife, Canary Islands, #canary-islands #spain
thanks!
Also didn't had a great experience with coworking places in corralejo..

Out of emergency, I worked couple of times in this goo.gl/maps/UoKDujEM3oVm9PSK8|cafe'/bar. They have good internet and view.

In the back there are some areas specific for working (with AC plugs as well)

But music is going to be loud for working... bring headphones and don't plan to be there for calls ๐Ÿ˜…
Why shouldnโ€™t it be safe U013CHJUXC2? Whatโ€™s your concern?
La Palma vulcano
Yes, but thatโ€™s a different island.
Maybe I just have a different risk profile
qwoswsfxwuum the smoke can be toxic and could reach Tenerife. Also because of the smoke, flights could be grounded - remember the Iceland volcano a few years ago
Wind is north-easterly for the coming days. At what altitude are the toxic fumes?
bygkrmiydoae no idea. Ask the epidemVULCANOLOGISTS
Can I ask if there is interest here for a Halloween Boat Party in Tenerife? I'm getting some quotes together now for a private catamaran. Hoping to get 50 people to split the cost. 0 Profit, just a community party. Looking at about 40 Euros for the day but could be 10 Euros more or less.
mmpmepd no issues reported on flights traffic so far. the smoke is still on the news, without mentions on other islands though, which shall be safe.
Hi ! I've just arrived in Tenerife Island for 1 month :blush:
I'm looking for a good coffee place in Las Americas with good wifi to work :grin:
Any Advice ? Thx ๐Ÿ™
Hey ! I havenโ€™t found any good coffee place to work from yet hereโ€ฆ Someone recommended me `El work cafe` but havenโ€™t tried yet
Thanks ! ๐Ÿ™
I've been trying to organise a Halloween boat party in Tenerife but finding it hard to find anything decent. I contacted Amarilla Coworking space to see if they wanted to help and they were totally up for it. They've pretty much taken it off my hands and will be announcing the plan soon. It's going to be awesome! Space at mine if anyone wants to flyover for the weekend and crash
๐Ÿ›ฌ uzhbggfsb just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ Corralejo, Canary Islands, #canary-islands #spain
passed by el work cafe and seems nice.
only 3 tables inside though, so hard to work outside on sunny days
Alright good to know U02SYJFDZ!

Anyone booked an apartment in tenerife on home2book.com|home2book.com yet? How's the Wifi? ๐Ÿ‘€
Hmm that's very interesting, I had never heard of this site. I might try it beginning of next year, when I plan to visit the Canary's
phn12d
they've couple of listings on airbnb, that's how I found them ๐Ÿ˜„
Oh yeah that's a good strategy for getting the host company and negotiating better prices
Anyone stayed in tenerife, las americas area or generally the south, over November, Dec, Jan? Hows the weather? Can you swim? Is it easy to get around if I donโ€™t drive a car? and whatโ€™s the overall digital nomad atmosphere like there? gracias! โ˜บ๏ธ
You can swim and the weather is nice in the south.
You'll struggle without a car or scooter if u don't go to Santa Cruz (the capital).
The south is very spread out
I stayed there from this March for 2 months. January to March are the coldest months on Tenerife, as far as I can say it's still really really enjoyable during these months especially in the south. It's still warm enough to go to the beach and swim and even get taned ๐Ÿ˜‰ Only thing is that in the evening you'll have to wear a hoodie to keep warm but that's it.

Would really suggest to get a car to enjoy the island "the fullest"
The community in the south is bad so far, super spread and mostly foreigners living here instead of nomads
cfvgqvlk got it! good to know about the DN community, I want to go where other nomads are going to avoid feeling lonely/isolated. planning to get a scooter, just havenโ€™t driven a car in couple years and donโ€™t feel confident enough to start in a foreign place tbh
I'm in Puerto De La Cruz as of Saturday for 2 months. Looked like a nice alternative to Santa. Kind of surf town vibes, with some tourists, some locals, some nomads
ykgrebqskmrxplmf sounds lovelyyy, really into the vibe!
Canary Islands are one of the best places to stay during the European winter. One of the very few downsides is that there is hardly any good coworking scene. This typically leads to people working from home.
have you stayed on the other islands? how does las palmas, for example, compare to tenerife?
If you want to surf, Las Americas seems to be the spot to be in the south
There is a good community in the Amarilla Coliving in the south. I stay there for two months from March. Lots of activities organised by the coliving too. I'm now in Las Palmas but will go back to Tenerife in February.
Amarilla co-working is empty, I tried checking it out
I'm in a bunch of Whatsapp groups (that's how they communicate here, a fucking new group for every single event, so stupid ) and there's a lot of stuff happening in Las Americas (events, new co-workings opening)
Any scooter big enough to be able to drive highway speeds is a motorcycle and needs a motorcycle licence, and thereโ€™s no accessible back roads to get around the island so itโ€™s not a scooter place
you can drive a 125cc without license, and they can go at 80-120 kmh depending on the model
I mean you need a car license to drive a 125cc
U023QDUH15Hbr />I just spent 2 weeks trying to look for a scooter/bike/car, it was really difficult, I finally got a car but they are fully booked everywhere for the winter .. A car is easier to get than a scooter

=>Itโ€™s easy to drive here, so donโ€™t worry too much about driving a car
yyoquviu thanks for the insight and the encouragement! โ˜บ๏ธ
I got mine from canarias.com|canarias.com
850 a month.

If you're staying for more than 2 months think about buying one here
Yes definitely vqqvsmhn if you add the budget for it you can get it easily :smile:. I was able to get a car (shitty one though) for 300 euro, if you need the contact let me know
xrgshmvoqc I didnโ€™t look that deep as well, I was just looking around ๐Ÿ™‚

Has anyone here stayed in Oasis Co-Living in Tenerife? Thinking about joining it for January and February.
Was just researching this today
There's seems to be a few
Can you share ur research?
I didn't go too far into it, but I can share some of the places I found tomorrow
Which are the best cities in Canary Islands with good surf and social life?
So from my very quick research the best coliving in Canary seems to be this 1๏ธโƒฃ www.ninecoliving.com/|https://www.ninecoliving.com/br />
I heard good things about Outsite overall (mainly from other locations), but in the Canary they have their location in Fuerteventura, so not exactly where I was to go. Link here www.outsite.co/locations/canary-islands|https://www.outsite.co/locations/canary-islandsbr />
This tends to be the trend based on what I've seen, most colivings in Canary's are all over the place, so I'm not super sold on any of them.

With that said in Gran Canarias there seems to be some central good options, so I'll have a better look at that.
I've heard good things about nine and also amarilla coliving in the south
Following
just looked into nine, fully booked for ages
Aren't they all? ๐Ÿ˜‚
A friend is now at Amarilla and likes it
seems it!
where you based atm?
La Tejita.
Don't recommend it.
El Medano is nice if you like kite/wind surfing
Las Americas, Los Cristianos seem to be the big nomad hubs but super touristy
ok good to know
I stupidly didn't think about it being peak season in canaries. Definitely should have planned ahead!
Peak for what?
Nomads and people trying to get some winter sun in Europe
Oh yeah
Portugal and Madeira are still ok but come winter canarias is the only place really
I stayed with Amarilla, itโ€™s a good way to find people to do things with but Golf del sur is a ghost town and I hated it there
they have villas in costa adeje which might be a much better buy these days
In the south only Los Cristianos and Las Americas have life really.
Even El Medano is small and not much going on
Halloween party in Tenerife South is confirmed. PM for details if interested
date?
Saturday 30th
FML, Iโ€™m flying that day ๐Ÿ˜ญ
Gutted man
rklqdbpt I really wish I could buy one... unfortunately you need a local address to proceed with the paperwork
unless you have some special trick to share ๐Ÿ˜„
Call cicar and u can get a monthly car for 600
I called them
I'm currently talking with a private local dude to rent his car. But on a repetitive basis it would be still cheaper to just buy a crappy car from FB marketplace. But as I said you need some proof of address ๐Ÿ˜ฅ (or someone has to pretend that for you)
How long are you staying?
I never stay long enough for it to be worth it .
When it comes to the buying, talk with the owner and see if he accepts to keep it in his name, but you'll have to sign some kind of contract because if the fines you might occur
Find a used car on FB and ask the owner if theyโ€™re willing to rent it to you for a few months
itโ€™s unlikely to depreciate much in that time and they can sell the car afterward
I've tried that but even as a resident got refused due to fear of fines / crimes with the vehicle
If you stay in a place for 3 or more months, it's worth it to go to a dealership and say "I buy it now and sell it to you in x months for less 1000 euros.
Even adding insurance costs and paperwork you still save money, if that's ur goal.

For 3 months I prefer to pay the rental to have no issues.
For 6 months I'd look into buying
Holร  there ! Do you folks know someone in the South who gives private Spanish classes? ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ
