Is this near you?
Ah Iโ€™m in Polanco just going to stay in
Ok. I m flying to Puerto Escondido tomorrow for a month. Then Medellin for a month. Hope we can meet.
Hi Guys! Is here anyone currently at Baja California Sur? What is the best place for digital nomads in BCS. I just arrived to La Paz today and I am shocked that there is nobody here. Iโ€™m looking for some digital nomads to make connections with and nice coffee shops to work at ๐Ÿ˜€ None of those in La Paz, unfortunatelyโ€ฆ
Safety aside is how good of a place is it to work and live from? What the hell, I think I might take my chances...this is what travel is about anyway haha
Thereโ€™s a strong American expat community both in La Paz and Todos Santos but not too many nomads, yeah. I think the most networked place for nomads might be PDC and CDMX at the moment
Thank you for your valuable advice. ๐Ÿ™
Yeah just a photo on my phone usually
It's very transient, which can be good or bad depending on what you're looking for. Infrastructure is pretty good, your housing options can be as luxurious as you're willing to pay for, and there's many many people on the "I'm here for a few months" plan instead of a short tourist trip. Lots of cafes and restaurants full of people working on laptops, food selection is decent, not mind-blowing. There's always a party happening. It's a pretty comfortable existence if you're living there on a developed country income.
gracias :)
Hey guys! Just arrived in CDMX for the next 10 days and definitely open to meet people. So if anyone wants to grab coffee or even better, to wander around, feel free ๐Ÿ™‚
None of the above
Not the best nomad spot. But if you're 80 and looking to make English speaking friends, you are set! The only coffee shop I could get strong wifi in La Paz was at CinnaRolls - good luck
on the upside, Mexico is an easy place for โ€œborder runโ€ visa renewals especially for Americans. You donโ€™t have to go back to your nation of origin, you just have to cross the border. So, yay Belize weekend! That resets your visa and you get another 180 days as a tourist. Beware of your tax status as a remote worker if you choose that route though.
I never carry my passport. But I have a photo of it in Dropbox.
Just don't try to spontaneously leave the country.
the buses are cheap & fun. uber works. taxis are still a thing. but so many of the neighborhoods are perfect just walking.
Also from the Cancun area you can make a quick trip to Belize. there are buses and flights and if youโ€™ve a car itโ€™s a great drive (+/-5hrs). Belize has beautiful relaxed island vibe out in the cays, Belize City is gritty but pretty fun. I lived in Cancun for a couple of years and did that border run twice. Good times.
La Paz is quiet, separated from the rest of Mexico so it gets its own kinda tourist, lots of CA retirees eg. Oaxaca is far less isolated and replete with color & cultures.
There are ferries to Mazatlan, and from there itโ€™s a quick few hrs to the PVallarta area, youโ€™re more likely to find nomad crew there in that whole region.

I'm going to be in CMDX for a few days! What have you been up to so far?
We are going to check Castillo de Chapultepec in about ~1 hour.
Does anyone want to join?
Hey! Will be in Yucatan (Playa del Carmen, Cancun) for next few weeks. Who are else here? In October will be exploring Mexico City. What cities in Mexico you also recommend to visit, guys? Will be grateful for recommendation. Also would be nice to meet up ๐Ÿ™‚
Staying in a coliving place in juarez, Roam Norte. Really nice. Exploring around and working basically. :smile:
Will be there until the 27th
๐Ÿ›ฌ ysfcnb just arrived in San Josรฉ del Cabo, #mexico
๐Ÿ›ฌ jhuypezz just arrived in ๐ŸŒฏ Mexico City, #mexico
so many great options! What do you like to do? (beach, pyramids, etc?)
FYI ~CDMX~ all of Mexico will be doing an earthquake alert drill tomorrow, September 19, at 11:30 am. Youโ€™ll hear an alarm that sounds like bad grunge-house industrial music. You can ignore it or take the opportunity to check your go-bag and practice your GTFO plan.
The alert system is designed to give you about 45 seconds before the shaking starts to get to a safe place. The advice is if you can get outside (and away from power lines, buildings and the junk that falls off them) in under 45 seconds, get out. Otherwise, stay inside and find a place away from windows and objects that donโ€™t belong on your head.
I am ready to consider all the options ๐Ÿ˜„
Interesting experience ๐Ÿ˜€
Fyi Yucatan is another state with cities like Mรฉrida / Valladolid (itโ€™s not Cancun and Playa)
And what the name of the state where Cancun and Playa?
Quintana Roo
Correction the earthquake drill will not be limited to CDMX โ€“ย it's for all of mexico!
Oh sweet! What have you gotten up to so far? Let me know if youโ€™re free tomorrow afternoon, I might go check out the Frida Kahlo museum
Too bad I missed this! How was it?
๐Ÿ›ฌ xknaykz just arrived in ๐ŸŒฏ Mexico City, #mexico
Working days are Tuesday-Saturday ๐Ÿ˜ž But the park itself is great!
Has anyone been to Co.404 in San Cristobal? Planning to stay at least one month in San Cristobal, and seems like a good option
Yes! I was their second guest ๐Ÿ˜
I really really liked it!
I'll be in San Jose Del Cabo next week! If you're still around would love to try to meet up ๐Ÿ˜€
Find some facebook groups. ALso on Airbnb, people are open to negotiating rates especially for a long term stay
Question to all of those who have recently flown to Mexico Have you filled in the "cuestionario de pasajero" before or after you arrived? Or not at all?
Arenโ€™t all flights โ€œto Mexicoโ€ international?! ๐Ÿค”
I filled it out before I arrived (but within 12 hours). They asked to see it at immigration
Had to fill it to leave Mexico. Arrived in Mexico City twice (from other countries) but never filled and it was never requested
Mexico is a big country. They have domestic flights too.
I donโ€™t like splitting hairs, but in my world there is no such thing as a domestic flight โ€œto Mexicoโ€. I can only book an international flight โ€œto Mexicoโ€.
cvnhorg Yes, but not all international flights involving Mexico are "to Mexico"
Some are "from Mexico"
An internal flight from Mexico is still to Mexico. And what makes you think whomever wrote this was a native English speaker? It's a Spanish-speaking country.
I wasnโ€™t aware of any country that demands covid-related information when people leave the country. If thatโ€™s what Mรฉxico is doing then I understand where my confusion stems from. Thx!
I already planned on going there tomorrow with fellow travelers from my hostel. But I'm heading to the Coyoacan free tour at 2pm today. Also we can grab coffee later if you want!
Let me know if you go again during the week. I'd be down! simple_smile
Hey guys, I am currently planning my November trip and wanted to ask if the borders between Mexico and USA are open? According to a website (Visalist) they are open, but I donโ€™t know how current these news are..

Thanks in advance praypray
ffgusc I plan to travel from the US to Mexico on Friday, by plane, so I sure hope so!
They are closed, talked to a relative in Ciudad Juarez (border with El Paso TX) and still not open.
Also saw an article from usatoday that border restrictions are extended until October 21
Oh fun! I just finished a tour with my hostel so probably won't make it for the 2pm tour but I'm happy to meet for coffee or something later in the afternoon ๐Ÿ™‚
Ya unfortunately from USA to somewhere could be possible but not from somewhere to USA. Europe for example. We Europeans can enter USA only from November finally
nwrqjs I'm a European. It's about where you are, not where you're from
By "they are closed" presumably you mean "land border"
Ya the reason why I asked if it's possible to go from Mexico to USA. Because I plan to go to Mexico first :)
Apparently 2pm tour was canceled. But I'm still in Coyoacรกn. Feel free to reach out if you want to join. I'm gonna explore around
Also, all museums are closed on Monday. Including the Frida Kahlo one
Oh too bad about the tour... And yeah, I just realized all the museums are closed today ๐Ÿ˜…
If you're going to be in the area for a while I'd like to join, but I'm in Centro so it'll take a while to get there
I should be around for a couple of hours ๐Ÿ™‚
Actually never mind, since it's a long journey I'll probably explore when the Frida Kahlo museum is actually open to save on time ๐Ÿ˜…
Let me know if there are other tours you are doing later this week though!
I might come back for the museum tomorrow so I'll let you know when we go with my friends
Awesome ๐Ÿ™‚
Hey guys, has anyone here stayed at Anana Coliving in Playa del Carmen ?
FYI. I dutifully filled it as requested, before but within 12 hours like U01R512J03C. I tried to show it at the immigration officer but he threw it back at me. You can fill it arriving as there is at least 30 minutes wait at immigration.
Interestingly, flying within Mexico I needed to fill it in before security check.

Hey, we're going to the free tour at 1.30 pm tomorrow if you want to join. Meeting point is at Fuente de los Coyotes. My friends are doing the museum at 1pm but I won't because there's not tickets anymore at this time and it's a bit expensive. Not so much a museum guy haha.
Sounds cool โ€” yeah Iโ€™m interested in joining. Out of curiosity, do you know how long the tour lasts? Your friends are going to the museum for 30 minutes and then joining the tour?
Also thanks for the tip about museum tickets, I didnโ€™t realize you have to purchase it online in advance! I will definitely look into that.
Apparently they will. Tour lasts 2 hours.
Ah okay, just wondering cause 30 mins sounds pretty short for a museum visit but anyways I will see you at Fuente de los Coyotes later. Thanks for the invite!
With pleasure. Are you around Roma Norte? If yes we can share a Uber.
Oh yeah that's a good idea, I'll DM you!
Fill it out as soon as you can (no more than 12 hours before) and youโ€™ll be able to skip the line!
๐Ÿ›ฌ ljluidzhfz just arrived in ๐ŸŒฏ Mexico City, #mexico
xqhfcxqn how about that coffee then?)
Yes a lot of europeans here in Mexico spend 14 days in the country to be able to go to the US afterwards. Makes no sense but it works. ๐Ÿ™‚
๐Ÿ›ฌ dzahqw just arrived in Loreto International Airport, #mexico
Sweet deal ๐Ÿ›
I've never seen anyone fly in to Loreto
Quick update I was not asked at entry for the document. Probably still a good idea to have it filled in, just in case.
Tip for those who arrive at Mexico City International airport There is a TelCel and Movistar store at gate 6 if you want to purchase a data card. However, thereโ€™s also airport wifi, ie booking an Uber without having a data Sim is also possible. Uber cost to Polanco ~10$USD
Thanks for the info ๐Ÿ™
Has anyone here bought a car in Mexico and gotten local insurance? is that even something possible with a foreign license?
