Replying to myself because I am now more knowledgeable it looks like these are the only ones in Las Palmas.
Does anyone have any recommendations for affordable housing in CORRALEJO?
Or any other remote-nomadish spot in Fuerte

Hola todos! My partner and I are looking to go to the Canary islands, We are thinking of either staying in Tenerife or Gran Canaria, which one would you guys recommend and which one has a more active nomad scene? We are looking to meet like minded nomads and open to staying at coliving places ๐Ÿ™‚
You mentioned you want to meet like minded nomads, but you didn't state what your interests are, so it's not clear to me what "like minded" means ๐Ÿค”
I haven't been to Tenerife, but Las Palmas definitely has a very active nomad scene, especially for its size
I meant that I wanted to meet people who are also nomads/ living this lifestyle for some time, not just vacationers, travellers, residents which we often encounter who don't get why we live this way.
Open to any coliving places anyone suggests!
+1 for Las Palmas
vpmghgtdj why Las Palmas?
Well, from my personal experience I just like Las Palmas best. The south of both islands, Gran Canaria (Maspalomas area) and Tenerife (Costa Adeje area), is VERY touristy so I didn't find this environment particularly great if you have to spend a certain amount of time with work. The infrastructure in terms of "entertainment" (e.g. all kinds of sports) might be quite good though, but accommodation also tends to be more expensive. In general I just prefer to stay in cities, hence the question (for me!) mainly boils down to Las Palmas vs. Santa Cruz which is an easy decision. Santa Cruz doesn't have any kind of beach close to the city center, the port is all over the place which I found rather unappealing and it offers less infrastructure in general. E.g. I enjoyed the bike sharing in Las Palmas quite a lot. Something that - to my knowledge - doesn't exist in SC. There are other places especially in Tenerife which seem to attract digital nomads (e.g. Puerto de la Cruz, El Medano) where I haven't been yet. However, I think they both don't qualify as "city", really ... ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
I'm down!
Heyo. Anyone know a place where you can book a single desk with a proper monitor and keyboard to dock my laptop into? All I'm seeing online are bare desks unless you rent a full office. Hopefully I'm missing something.
In Las Palmas
If you get a 10-day pass at Talleres Palermo you get access to the few monitors that they have. Just need to be there early to get one.

At Soppa Azul you need to pay for 1 month to get a chance to get a monitor. Before paying ask him if he still has a monitor available.

Hey all โ€“ The villa I live in (North Tenerife) has a free room starting in April, feel free to DM and I can get more details โ€“ thought Iโ€™d mention here just incase anyone is looking for accommodation!
ixyplkpoj Hey I ended up coming to Las Palmas, are you still here? Let me know
Anyone in Las Palmas? Just got here yesterday and looking forward to meeting some nomads ๐Ÿ™‚
liveitup-laspalmas.com/|https://liveitup-laspalmas.com/ there's a slack channel with a whole community here, hope it helps!
Thanks! I joined!
Nope, I left a week ago. Enjoy Las Palmas! smileyv
I'm in Las Palmas too! Down to meet!
Anyone have any leads or suggestions on finding an apartment near Las Canteras for April? TIA!

Just missed you! I leave Tuesday
Hey friends, I'm coming to Las Palmas on April 1st. Any recommendations on how to get to Las Palmas from LPA airport? I have one check in bag, and one carry on. Is taking the bus a reasonable choice? It seems Uber isn't there, how much would a taxi cost?
Anybody know a nice spot in the south of Tenerife to watch the stars?
rzidqmqqua iโ€™ve been told taxi should run about 30 euros
Bus is pretty easy and cheap
Thank you!
bus number 60 for 3 euros! easy peasy ๐Ÿ™‚

I think Gran Canaria is better known for this.
Hey All, I just hate it when someone asks a highly subjective question so here goes my turn! ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm going to be in Las Palmas for a month remote working, I'm on Teams/Zooms calls all day long.. I've been to other co-working places where this just doesn't seem to work out (and I assume not for the people around me! though I'm not loud)... So I guess I need something a bit more 'corporate', I've seen DoJoCoworking which looks a bit more 'desky'... what do you think?
jtziquenhy welcome! I just arrived on Saturday. I recommend that you ask that on this local Slack that includes a lot of very helpful long-term and local folks โ€ฆ

Thanks UE01HMDPT! Any on the ground experience from yourself would be awesome too!
cicar / payless is so far my favorite car rental company for various reasons (especially the fact they are not strict with scratches and so on) unfortunately prices went mad in 2022, hope you can get a good deal
Thanks bro! Let me check it out
I'm on Tenerife though ๐Ÿ˜…
Any road that takes you to Teide up the mountains, away from the โ€œlight pollutionโ€ ;-)
who's around? let's make a meetup!
Great idea
I was thinking something cooler.. what about hike group?
Hey! Which island has the biggest nomad population according to you?
Most of the islands are great for hiking! Good idea. I hope there's a nomad video guide coming soon ๐Ÿ˜‰
Conventional wisdom says Gran Canaria, specifically in Las Palmas
yes I will!
Anyone here in Lanzarote? ๐Ÿ™‚
Nice article about the DN community in Las Palmas โ€ฆ
Look up re-people co-living on Gran Canaria, they seemed to have a decent amount of housing options when I was looking for May avails but I ended up booking an airbnb
Yess, I made a video with Nelle already about the community
hey guys, how much time you were waiting for certificate after vaccination? was it paper or electronic?

I am about to move to Tenerife after spending 13 years in Thailand :)
any information on how can i open a local bank account?
hi ovywmlbjxykc will write privately!
I'll join tomorrow, thanks for organizing it! ๐Ÿ™‚
say it isn't so!
Hi there, I will be in Fuerteventura (Corallejo) from 11/06 - 25/06 and and in Tenerife (not sure which town yet) 25/06 - 03/07. It would be really nice to connect with fellow remote workers ๐Ÿ˜‰ . Wanna ask some tips too -
โ€ข What are the prettiest surfing towns in Tenerife for a remote worker? Something authentic, not too touristy, with a nice vibe in the evening ?
โ€ข Any general tips of top places to visit (off the beaten path), in Fuerteventura, Lanzarotte and Tenerife?
โ€ข Any tips on mobile internet? I will have wifi in the hotels but would like to purchase a local sim, which Spanish provider is best ?

My tip stay longer;-) Three weeks is not enough to enjoy any of the beauty of the islands, let alone squeeze work in.
vipptlo thanks - if i like it i might return - this time this is all i could afford
Hi everyone, i just arrived in Tenerife and itโ€™s beautiful hereheart_eyes Any recommendations for cafes to work from in Santa Cruz? Also, anyone wants to grab dinner?
I've just arrived too! I'm in La Orotava too. I'm going to Santa Cruz this friday to watch Dr Strange lol
Ah nice, i see thatโ€™s quite far from SCsee_no_evil How is it there?
So far nice, cute town. I'm in Nine coliving so there's community here
I really struggled to find a good cafe to work from in Santa Cruz. Many don't have wifi and for those that do the quality is poor. Tbh in all of Tenerife I didn't find it to be very digital nomad friendly in that sense (no cosy work spaces in cafes to work from)
i had the same experience as adrian. i once tried to go to the library rb TEA, but due to covid regulations is was quite difficult getting a table thereโ€ฆ maybe thatโ€˜s better now ๐Ÿ™
Thatโ€™s the impression i have so far, too. But iโ€™m at TEA now and itโ€™s great ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, thereโ€™s a Starbucks in a shopping mall.
I didnโ€™t find quiet cafes with fast wifi in Puerto de la Cruz either, but if you guys end up there Iโ€™d recommend ร‰bano Cafรฉ and the cafรฉ of Atypicap Capsule Hostel (they also have a really nice rooftop)
๐Ÿ›ฌ sjgerec just arrived in ๐Ÿ Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, #canary-islands #spain
My impression of Tenerife after living there for 3 months (in Puerto de la Cruz and Santa Cruz) is that whilst it's such a picturesque island with incredible natural beauty, I wouldn't live there again just due to pretty average food, bad coffee, poor wifi and lack of English speakers. It's a pretty poor DN destination IMO
i agree mostly. however, in terms of weather the canaries are pretty much the only good winter destination within the EU ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ the only place i found worth visiting again was las palmas and only in combination with a basic spanish crash course ๐Ÿซฃes expanding your own language skills might be an effort but i think learning some spanish is actually a good thing ๐Ÿค”

The thing to understand here is that SC is not a touristic / nomad destination - itโ€™s a city where locals just live, and thatโ€™s what I personally loved about it. Thatโ€™s also why they donโ€™t exactly speak english. If you want that, go to los cristianos and โ€˜enjoyโ€™ the mini-uk thatโ€™s there.

Cafes / Cafeterias (in Tenerife and Canarias in general) here are meant to be a social place where people meet and talk and chill - they are everything except a workplace.

If you do need a place to work - there are like 10 coworking areas in SC alone, and I literally wasnโ€™t able to visit them all. By far the best one Iโ€™ve been to is _Espacio Kernel_.
Iโ€™m looking for accommodation in Santa Cruz, Tenerife for a month, any leads?

Iโ€™ll arrive Sunday or Monday 22nd or 23rd of May

Looking for something quite central with good access to restaurants. Nice well equipped place with a view if possible.

Sorry for cross posting this to #spain I didnโ€™t realise Gran Canaria had a separate channel.
Who's in Tenerife these days? Let's have a meetup this weekend
so which day are you getting? I can ask some ppl I know from Santa Cruz. Also why that part precisely? curious as we have north / south
