You can carry on you ad hominem attacks, but that does not take away from the seriousness of the situation that was created by this meetup
You need to think very carefully before you have another one
Oh man, sorry to hear you got it! Hopefully isn't bad and goes by soon. Everyone take risks by assisting any event, anywhere. Stay safe!
For anyone who was at the meetup last Monday in Playa del Carmen. I just tested positive for Covid, most likely as a result of that event. I'm now in self isolation waiting for the all clear, because that is the responsible thing to do.

For anyone entertaining organizing/attending another one of these meetups, act responsibly. There were over 2,000 new Covid infections yesterday in Quintana Roo alone, and that's not counting the dire situation in the rest of Mexico.

Keep in mind, we are guests in this country. Stay safe people.
Meet me there ๐Ÿ‘Œ I'll be there if it doesn't rain. U02SMN6VD6Eyou're in?
Such a good idea, just arrived and havenโ€™t seen the beach yet, would love to join ๐Ÿ˜‡
What is the process here for foreigners? Does any instance care or do you only do the isolation yourself and that's it? I.e. the place you did the test, will they forward the information when you got tested positive or something?
#mexico looking for an expat in Mรฉrida to help us with an upcoming project, ~10 page analysis of living in the city. Any suggestions on where to look?
One my way, anybody's gonna be there?
Yup, about to leave cowork and should arrive in 5

nmhsjosrhl Puerto Escondido is listed as having excellent internet, which is some kind of sick joke I think ๐Ÿค” nomadlist.com/puerto-escondido
I've never heard of a place where people complain quite so much about how shitty the internet is there
I have to agree. Internet goes down for the whole city often (but not at Selina's, somehow).
Iโ€™m looking to visit PDC for 3 months. What are the best places to work and take video calls with good wifi?

It seems like most of the airbnbs have reviews of really spotty wifi.
I'm flying from the US to CDMX soon. Do I need to get a covid test to get into Mexico? The information I'm finding seems unclear
h2d
You can look up requirements for any destination country, your specific passport, and flight origin at www.iatatravelcentre.com|www.iatatravelcentre.com.br />
This is the same database most airlines use at their check-in counters so it's comprehensive and generally accurate.
maybe it highly depends what neighborhood?
Hey man, would be in w/ my gf tonight if that's still on.
There's a co-working called NEST which is reasonable. Theres also Selina.
It looks like the Mexico City meetup tonight will be in an indoor space. Maybe we should move it to an outdoor area due to the current situation here?
In three months in Oaxaca, the second thing anyone every had to say about PE is how shitty the Wi-Fi was
If you manage to sneak into the Thompson Hotel it has great WiFi
The access code is
thompsonpdc
Starbucks also has great WiFi but it can be quite loud
As of today, you don't need a test to Mexico
The internet can be fast. It's just not reliable at all.
Pretty cold at night in Mexico City these days
wgxuorrm Might be hard to change the reservation at this point, its a pretty open market space though and you can feel free to wear a mask inside. I will look around for outdoor alternatives though.
Iโ€™m flying out tomorrow at 5am โ€ฆ does anyone know a good work friendly hostel/hotel to hangout in roma/condesa until 2 am
Maybe look into Selina. You could probably book their cheapest dorm bed to be able to stay there
It's not in roma/condesa but close I think
It's Mercado Roma right? There's a nice outdoor space on the first floor!
I know the owner of one of the restaurants there if you want to coordinate with her U02E5NWSZS6. She was my airbnb host
La Jocheria
yea! baiweyzcjg was thinking the area to the back of the first floor where theres a bunch of picnic style tables
Yea that's it
near the Mezcaleria and other restaurants
Yep!
We have done large group meetups in the past and usually we just show up and expand accross the tables lol
Hoping that will be fine this time. Going to arrive early to claim a table
thanks will take a look
For anyone going to the Mexico City Meetup tonight, a few of us will arrive a bit earlier than 7 to claim a table. DM me if you want to head over early and I will let you know when we plan to arrive! ๐Ÿ™‚ partying_face
Won't be able to make it tonight but hope you guys will have a blast! ๐Ÿ™‚
I was just told it takes 24 hours to get PCR test results โ€ฆ is there any faster place? I thought it was much faster. In vietnam it took 30 minutes but I guess that was different.
it's possible there are tests at the airport (that gets results in 30 minutes) but these are usually expensives.
thanks, I will look into that
A rapid test that only takes 20-30 minutes is usually an antigen lateral flow test. PCR tests requires sending the samples to an actual laboratory for processing, which always has at least a half-day delay at best.

Labs are busy now because of the omicron wave. If you don't need an actual PCR test, the best option is to schedule an appointment for a rapid antigen test with Farmacias del Ahorro www.fahorro.com/prueba_antigenos|https://www.fahorro.com/prueba_antigenos
i just signed up for this meetup. see you guys there!
Anyone from Yucatรกn Merida want to meet up?
I need to โ€œpresent a negative molecular test with a result date of no more than 72 hours before boarding at their point of originโ€. am going to peru
That's a PCR test, so you'll need to go to a lab. Salud Digna is a large lab chain, and have the best price on PCR tests at $950 salud-digna.org/covid-19/estudio-covid-19/
Hi I can't message you directly because I'm a new member. I had signed up to go, but I can't find the email, can you DM me the details?
I just went and they say they only do antigen test.
I will try the airport.
Salud Digna definitely does PCR, but you have to book in advance. They don't seem to have availability, or the website is buggy.
I'm 99.999% sure the airport will not have PCR tests.
Ok thanks for the info. The lady at salud said they donโ€™t do them but maybe its the wrong branch. I will probably have to reschedule my flight.
www.chektahora.com/ has mail-order PCR tests, with results 24-hours after they receive the sample.
I was confused. To fly ANA out of Vietnam I just need a 30 minute test. live and learn
atend.mx is a personal nurse service. They come to your house with various services including covid tests. Order vรญa WhatsApp at
thanks, Iโ€™ll get in touch with them
Yep, different countries have different requirements. For travel to the US, I only need a 15 min antigen test that can be done at the airport. Some countries in EU and LatAm require PCR.
Here's a list of testing locations compiled by the US embassy, which indicates where PCR is available. gpa-mprod-mwp.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/sites/15/2021/06/20210114_COVID_Labs.pdf
On the way to Mercado Roma for the meetup. Remember its the first floor at the very back past the food vendors. I will be wearing a blue scarf if you have trouble spotting us!
thanks. Iโ€™ve been to 3 different labs today and sat on hold with the airline for an hour. probably should have learned spanish during my 175 days here

Change of plans we are at biergarten inside Roma Norte
On the 3rd floor
If you have trouble finding it just dm me
is it this one Biergarten, Calle Querรฉtaro,
Lol I was going up to tables and everyone was like wtf do you want ๐Ÿ˜‚
Yes it's that one
Ask workers for biergarten when you get to mercado roma where it is
It's not reliable in the slightest bit.
FYI _Some_ airports have labs/PCR tests (my experience in Miami), but that's probably (99% sure) not the case where you are.
Anybody want to grab dinner or a beer in Roma Norte on Monday?
almoost everyone in Mexico is here lol. what are your questions? i'm about to publish a video about PDC for digital nomads ๐Ÿ™‚
Which coworking space? Take in mind it's easy to walk or take a bike around
Also why washing machine? there's soo many laundry places here, for 2-3usd and one day service
Prices usually go around 700-1100usd for a month, for a good place
We've been using a drop off laundry service called Mr Jeff and it's pretty fantastic.
I was sitting near the museum of anthropology and someone suddenly splashed sauce on me and two decently dressed people ran up to me and began to clean my jacket and backpack right away . one of them began to slowly open my backpack ... I immediately stepped aside and they left. Be aware
Hey U026YCGMT6U! I'm not a part of the community but my husband and I are allies if you're ever keen to hang out

Hi Everyone, I know you were discussing the internet in PE a couple days ago. I wanted to know if any of you have seen any improvement with internet speed and reliability in San Pancho. I really want to head down there but my job requires multiple video calls during the day. In the past, it was too slow to do this on the daily. Thank you!
