Great place to live!
Which of the islands would people say were best to be based in the months of oct-dec? Trying to get a sense of the differences between each place and how life is there but itโ€™s difficult!
Nice! I spent 3 months in Famara at the beginning of the year.
Tenerife and Las Palmas are the best ones.
To chose between them depends on what u want to do (beach, hike, cold, hot, etcโ€ฆ)
Thanks man. Yeah somewhere warm, some surfing, hiking and a good social scene too would be perfect
lwzcemg xguiksg help me out
and donโ€™t say Fuerte or Iโ€™ll ask Grum to kick u from the slack
swztgtgo I never speak about Fuerte because I'd only say bad things. I haven't been to GC or Tenerife but heard awesome things.
But I love canarios & the vibe & really want to go back for a few months, so I'm interested in this thread
is it simple to find fiber optic internet in apartments as in Tenerife?
I stayed at one;-)
sxuerxi yes fibre optic is slowly making its way around the island, but even some fairly remote areas are being connected to fibre now which is brilliant, let me know if you're looking for a place!
thanks! I will definitely ping you in case I come there this winter ๐Ÿค™
Las palmas or tenerife? Looking for a strong community of digital nomads, vegan options, beautiful scenery, great hiking and accessible without a car
IMO the best community Iโ€™ve found in GC is The House coworking. They are about to open a coliving too. Lots of international/local people, they also organize outdoors activities, yoga, breakfasts/networking on Fridays, etc. Really good vibes
GC is Gran Canaria (Las Palmas)
You got my attention with this, looks really cool. Will consider seriously this destination ๐Ÿ‘€
I decided on Tenerife! Headed there end of September. Any recs on neighborhoods?
El Mรฉdano in the south is a great little surfer town. I stayed there for 3 months earlier this year.
Costa adeje is the nicer lively spot
owuzxjsr which town in Madeira, and how do you see its advantages to Tenerife?
Ponta do Sol from Oct onwards.
Best digital nomads community ever.
Vegan options in Funchal , beautiful scenery all over the island, amazing hiking.
Ponta or Funchal are doable without a car, there's groups with cars going on hikes and weekend trips
El Medano, Costa Adeje the best options. Just avoid Santa Cruz at all costs...
Ah why is that U01E73528DD?
Worse weather than the South, lack of cafes to work from and there is no community, it's all locals
Thereโ€™s nomads all over the south and then also up in puerto de la cruz around Nine Coliving
Good to know! Thanks guys ๐Ÿ™‚
Sounds amazing! I have to stay in Spain though for my visaโ€ฆ
I should as well but... joyjoy
I'll be in Barcelona from 5th onwards if you want to go for a beer/coffee
For sure! send me a message when youโ€™re here
Hey guys, do I need a drivers license to rent a scooter in Tenerife? I just realized mine is about to expire smiling_face_with_tear
I thought the scooter companies like lime and bird require you to scan it when you sign up but maybe there's different companies there
scooter in american is different than scooter in โ€œeuropeanโ€ I guess?

for me a scooter is a motorcycle.
for adaykin it seems to be a lime/bird โ€œfoot thingy that I donโ€™t know any other name in english other than scooterโ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚
I asked because Mexico doesnโ€™t ask, just an ID works! At least in Tulum ๐Ÿ˜‚
I'm not saying those are the only ones, in the US no one would think of a scooter as anything other than something that looks like what lime/bird provides
yeah in the UK both meanings are true
all of these are scooters
yeah, for me (in ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น ) is mostly the white one.
red one is vespa.
green one canโ€™t remember the name
in europe is going to be hard to rent one without a drivers license Iโ€™m guessing
Yeahh thatโ€™s what I thought :/ just wanted to be sure
hmedmdgznjz Yeah spot on. Same in Ireland. In AUS/NZ too methinks. But the more I think about it now, its quite confusing lol!
to add confusion when to use 'moped' and when 'scooter' ? ๐Ÿ˜„
Scooter is European for a small motorcycle
LOL, now I have this in my head Scooter - How Much Is The Fish?
That's because ur as old as me ๐Ÿ˜‚
Does anyone know of a good place to get lessons for riding a scooter? (Canary Islands or elsewhere)
In Europe I'd say contact any driving school and see if they're up for it (since u don't need the drivers license, right?)
Europe doesnโ€™t require a special license or training to ride one of these?
Car driving license for 125cc, motorcycle license for anything above
๐Ÿ›ฌ icnycftpgibqx just arrived in ๐Ÿ Las Palmas, Canary Islands, #canary-islands #spain
Hey guys! Iโ€™m new to nomadlist idk how people meet up here lol
Iโ€™m in Las Palmas for a month, add a random emoji to this thread if you wanna meet up with other nomads in the area! Maybe we can grab a beer / meal and hang out somewhere fun!
Whatโ€™s the situation in the Canaries like right now? I see the vaccination rate is high, I was thinking of going in November potentially
Everything is ok there, they lock down lightly when it happens. Depending on the tier the resrataunts use smaller tables and then eventually outdoor seating only
jvuboep what gulpnlvf says only applies to Spain. If you have a car driving license older than 3 years since you passed the exam you can drive up to 125cc only in Spain
not only in spain, most europe
portugal too
I want to spend a month in Canary Islands,October/November, I do not want to go to a resort town, I think I would enjoy a more normal town like LPGC or SCT. Is it true that Las Palmas de GC has a better remote workers community than SC de Tenerife? Which neighborhoods and co-workings would you recommend?
Hey everyone, Iโ€™m planning to come to Canary Islands for the first time. Iโ€™d like to spend a couple of months surfing, do you know what are the best spots? I checked a view surf-webcam but the waves look really smallย confused
Winter is usually good, summer not so much
Alright good to know, do you think October can expect some surf-able waves?
Europe and North Africa benefit from autumn and winter swells for surfing. They should start picking up any week now. Actually hurricane storm Larry will be crossing the Atlantic late next week and looks like it has potential to generate some big waves. Check Magic Seaweed for forecasts. North coast of Gran Canaria and north coast of Fuerteventura look like the popular surf spots. El Mรฉdano in south Tenerife is a windy surf town where everyone kitsurfs, windsurfs, or wingsurfs.
Thanks for the info! Iโ€™ll look on the app ๐Ÿ˜„
I don't know your level, but from my experience you'd better go to Portugal or France. Even the north of Spain. I was in Fuerteventura and waves were shit. It's always very windy there, so shit waves most of the time.
If you are a beginner, you'll have fun in any place with small waves tho
Fuerte is shit, I keep saying that.
Donโ€™t know about Tene or Las Palmas.

Portugal is perfect, u have amazing spots depending on ur level
(Ericeira - mid to advanced, Peniche all levels, Caparica - beginner, Carcavelos - beginner)
I went to Morroco in the winter and is a dream
Is it that bad ? smiling_face_with_tear haha Iโ€™ll go for a couple of weeks then and see I can get some waves. Where did you go in Marroco U02SYJFDZ?
Some people will tell you they have awesome waves - not in my experience in Fuerteventura. There are lots of posh people from Barcelona and Madrid that go there for a month and think they are pro surfers and that they catch massive waves both very far from the truth.
Apparently Tenerife is more touristic, but havenโ€™t been there in ages so canโ€™t tell you more. Iโ€™m in LPGC
So how is LPGC? What neighbourhood and coworkings would you recommend?
rutqgqqc Check out La Santa - Lanzarote, the swells there can get pretty crazy
Iโ€™m close to las canteras, but that can be touristic. Vengueta is beautiful, and others enjoyed jardรญn ciudad.
About coworking I still have to go to one. Kids schools just started. I spent a day in coworking canary island, but thatโ€™s too short to say something. A friend of mine didnโ€™t like it because of the lack of natural light. A friend is going to coworking Palermo and likes it
Hi pinydzqq I'm staying in Lanzarote two months now.
๐Ÿ›ฌ vbtperwj just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ Tenerife, Canary Islands, #canary-islands #spain
Those tsunami stories sell news headlines so easy.
Apparently the mega tsunami event is completely made up and volcanologists have debunked it.
canโ€™t find any real news about it indeed
Given the decade we are in I will be pleasantly surprised for no Tsunami wipes out a continent. ๐Ÿ˜„
are vulcanologists the new epidemiologists?
theyโ€™re the new maderna
Tsunami is the new Ivermectin
Everyone in canary islands has heard at least once that if the volcano (another one) would break and fall into the sea it would generate a taunami that would destroy new york XD. I guess they remembered it and decided to use that as a click bait
Trump would have started the construction of a wall against the East coast after seeing those vulcanologist memes
is that yours? amazing
Pico de las Nieves is on Gran Canaria ;-)
I wasnโ€™t sure about the name haha Itโ€™s the โ€œPicoโ€ next to the observatory
Actually I just checked and itโ€™s called Pico de la Nieve as well
Ah! Interesting, didnโ€™t know this. prayskin-tone-3
mvrorbsbun my friend I was with took the pic ๐Ÿ™‚
awesome picture
