flnftcmil did you make it? How was your experience entering the islands from abroad?
iโ€™m arriving on a bit over a week olfbxhl will report back ๐Ÿ˜‰
Of the level 1 places which island could be recommended for a first timer?
For first timer GC, Tenerife, Lanzarote or Fuerteventura. Just try to live with the limitations. Youโ€™ll be fine.
I literally wasnt even passport checked when I arrived two days ago :) they just checked my PCR test in Lisbon where I flew from!
Actually they did check the QR code for the health form but thatโ€™s it ;)
So still the same as 1.5 weeks ago. In the health form you assure them that you did a PCR test recent then 72 hours.
Anyone know what's the fastest way for me to get an USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter in Tenerife?
You should be able to find them at Wortens
Will have a look when they open ๐Ÿ™‚
Isn't there any good hardware stores in Santa Cruz for example? I need m2 enclosure and really don't want to wait weeks for it to arrive from Portugal.
Another question, does anybody know what payment apps are popular here? Every country seems to have their own app nowadays people use to send money to each other.
Transferwise and revolut
Wise and revolut would be number 1 and 2 all over the world except US I guess
Never been to south america though so don't know what people use there
Arrived yesterday, all smooth as well for me โœŒ๏ธ
They just checked the Qr code + test result. Nothing about tourist accomodation or that extra paper it's said to be filled on hellocanary
In Spain everyone uses Bizum to send money to each other
Bizum you need a spanish bank account
Same for mbway in Portugal
Yeah, the bank account is a problem...
There are some "digital" Spanish banks you could use like Imagin
didnโ€™t have a good experience with Imagin but I wonder if foreigners can use it
Ehy there, anyone in Tenerife, El MEdano?
I arrived yesterday in Tenerife and they only requested the QR code as well, pretty chill
A few weeks ago yes, nice for kite surfing. kite ๐Ÿ„โ€โ™€๏ธ
What are some good areas to stay in Tenerife? Thanks
I prefer the north since itโ€™s less touristy. Puerto de la Cruz is my favourite until now
Depends on what you like. South has more sunshine and nicer beaches. however, if you donโ€™t like tourists, rather spend time in Santa Cruz.
The beaches in the north are also not that bad. Mostly black sand
Booked 5 weeks in GC, arriving next week. How is life there right now?
+ Can you sit down and get a coffee?
+ Are masks required outside?
โ€ข Coffees and restaurants are open (outside)
โ€ข Yes, masks are mandatory as soon as youโ€™re somewhere in public
cwiqglasroz - done with Georgia?
Colloquially beaches are the one place you don't need one
Legally you're still meant to wear one on the beach if you aren't in the water or sitting down on the beach
how is/was it?
iโ€™m interested in going there this summer
ckxjtsdvwbd which area did you decide to stay in?
Georgia? I'm still here. It's decent, weather is picking up. There is a very strict 9pm curfew that you must not be outside your house.
And on weekends you cannot sit inside any building, like cafe, restaurant etc.
yeah i'm also probably going in summer, after i exhaust my tourist days in turkey, still have about 40 to go :-D
(also interested in reading how it is)
Iโ€™m thinking the same if Bali doesnโ€™t open
lfylaect when are you planning to go?
no plans really.
I was thinking Bali in June but the quarantine is holding me back
need to leave Portugal in June so trying to figure out what to do
same then, heading out of turkey on may 29th, probably to georgia but of course it depends on the ever-changing situation of the world by then
Iโ€™m in Puerto and itโ€™s actually really nice. Santa Cruz doesnโ€™t have a beach and the south is much more touristy, so here feels like a good balance
Okay thanks for the input here. Staying in Maspalomas
mxoveiqdksc yes, Georgia was good but 5 weeks was enough for this trip โ€” I enjoyed eating in restaurants, working from coffee shops and the lovely trip to Batumiโ€ฆ but needed to get out to sort brexit stuff out with Berlin.
ahh gotcha
Can anyone recommend a headshot photographer with access to a studio in GC, ideally in or around Maspalomas but will be happy to travel 45 mins or so.
If you are into water/wind sports, like kitsurf or windsurf, then the south is where the action is.
Just decided to move to tenerife for 6-12 months
So excited!!!
If you find one lmk prayskin-tone-3
welcome! life is good here!
Where specifically are you
I'm currently in Santa Cruz. The issue for me has been that locals don't really speak English. I don't speak Spanish, so everything you need to get done here is a frustrating process. It's literally at the level of hand signals and pointing to stuff. Also ordering things online doesn't really work because delivery times are very long and most shops in Europe don't deliver here at all. Then you have to deal with customs which again is time consuming. But if you speak Spanish and you don't order things online, this place is fantastic, especially the weather ๐Ÿ‘Œ
For me, this place is a place where I would love to spend a two week vacation, but turns out living here isn't my cup of tea unfortunately.
moewajqsmaxf good summary! If you want to enjoy Tenerife while speaking English your town is Adeje in the south. Very touristy and cashiers tent to speak English.
๐Ÿ’ฏ % agree shipping stuff to the Canary Islands can be pretty frustrating. However, I hardly ever order anything online. There are a few good malls which have what I need.
amazon doesn't work there?scream
Never tried to order from Amazon but believe me itโ€™s possible to live without Amazon;-)
I don't believe you
Btw, one protip with PCR tests. If you book through Salud Savia, make sure you pick a lab that's close to you. After you have booked the test, you still have to schedule appointment yourself and based on my own experience and a couple of friends, the labs are not picking up the phone. Your best option is to go to the lab and schedule the appointment there. And be prepared to talk with your hands unless you speak Spanish ๐Ÿ˜
rvgexwjxq did you find any cafe' with good wifi in Puerto?
Usually what's the best form of transportation trough the island?
Public transport is very good. Also easy to a rent car (~100โ‚ฌ/week for Fiat 500 via Cicar).
Any photographers on Gran Canaria or have any recommendations? Looking for some fresh headshots.
jelxaaa still lookingโ€ฆ but without much luck. Strange man-shruggingskin-tone-2
Finally decided on Corralejo (Fuerteventura) for the whole month of May... Any recommendations for cafes/coworkings appreciated. And if any of you want to meet up, LMK! ๐Ÿ–
it was ultra boring when I was there, I hope u are luckier than me
๐Ÿ˜‚ A friend convinced me and since I've never been... Worth a try!
โ€œHub Coworkingโ€ has been recommended to me.
Going to book my first trip as digital nomad to Tenerife, any tips/recommondations? Iโ€™ll probably stay at the south but will explore the rest of the island as well ๐Ÿ˜„
Hi all :wave:
Soโ€ฆ I also decided to book a one-way flight to Las Palmas and staying there for (more or less) a couple of weeks :desert_island:. Any recommendations when it comes to co-working spaces near the city centre?
How are current restrictions in Tenerife? Are restaurants and bars open for dine/drink in? Is there a 10pm curfew?
Restaurants are open and 10pm curfew is enforced.
Or at least restaurants that haven't had to close yet...
11pm curfew in tenerife atm and you can only sit outside, but bars and restaurants are open
ctsbktq not with great speed but iโ€™ve been working from cafe รฉbano
uoyxfxq I found a photographer โ€” from a local friend who lives and works here. Booked a headshot shoot next Friday. If youโ€™d like the contact send me a DM ๐Ÿ™‚
Any recommendations on somewhere I could get my body fat percentage measured on Gran Canaria. Iโ€™m staying in Maspalomas but happy to travel.
U01NWC87B5Zbr />โ€ข Baifo coworking, well equiped but manager not nice
โ€ข Mercado very good coffee, you can stay to work inside
โ€ข Uga uga noisy but incredible view in front of the sea, you can stay as long as you want with space for your laptop
โ€ข La Bottega also very nice coffee/food, ok to work outside but not the best if you need a real working space
โ€ข if you want to go to Lajares sometimes, SurfingEscape is perfect to chill and work in a good environment
โ€ข but most people work from home honestly
PS donโ€™t listen to dvpita Corralejo is not boring at all, Iโ€™ve never heard someone saying that ๐Ÿ˜† Itโ€™s so not-boring it has become a problem, Corralejo is featured in mainland spain news because of illegal parties ^^
Recommendations on a Sim card with a weekly or monthly prepaid plan as an hotspot for work (7-14 days) and possibly music/video streaming for a limited time. My Italian Sim would give 4.4gb per month and might be a bit short
If you just need internet and no calls it seems that simyo is the cheapest
Iโ€™m sure the 2nd screenshot is only for contracts, not pre paid
In Portugal we have unlimited data for 30 euros pre paid, not sure a similar thing exists in Spain
I got a Vodafone sim card in Lisbon with amazing prices "anywhere in the EU" that turned out to not include the canaries
I can ask the guy who runs the gym Iโ€™m going to in San Agustin.
Anyone looking for an apartment in Fuerteventura in the next couple of weeks?
ezuqwww yes please ๐Ÿ™‚
Iโ€™m looking for an accommodation for 3/4 people in Tenerife from approx 18 May to 1 June, ideally in the north of the island. Did I remember correctly that there are whatsapp groups with NL members in? Can you advise? Cheers ๐Ÿ™
