Looking for private Bachata lessons in PV or even Sayulita. Recommendations welcome! dancerskin-tone-2 ๐Ÿ•บ ๐Ÿ™
Lost the recommendations for a co-working space near Roma/Condesa. Can someone repost? Just arrived in the city. ๐Ÿ™‚
a255 is popular with nomads, including Remote Year folks. (Note that it has a different name now but is still listed that way on Google Maps.) I also like Wrk but itโ€™s pretty empty right now if youโ€™re looking for community.
imsmeojducbq kqpadgsjll How about an afternoon coffee/juice tomorrow in Ojo de Agua in Condesa? ๐Ÿ™‚ Shall we say 3PM?
I am also game to meet up ๐Ÿ™‚
gumkkizxmhnksn hvzhettluc bmdkibggch Ojo de Agua works for me! But letโ€™s do 4:30 pm tomorrow?
yvlbyvnayisr wzwdlpxuvh xjipdilsfm I have Spanish from 5. Would you manage at 4 at least?
tfbvxtzhcusx qrvwqdstsv olyiocxkrj Ok lovely people, we have a date! white_heart See you tomorrow at 4 here ๐Ÿคฉ
cvgnbufiaazrak also, hows the wifi there? thinking of working from there today
kapiymqxlmrs Havenโ€™t try their wifi, but just around the corner is Blend station - they have great wifi both indoors and outdoors. Might be there later today too.
gotcha, thanks U01QST0DZK7!
Q onda, nadie habla espaรฑol por aqui ? ๐Ÿคฃ
hola amigos! I will be in Oaxaca city on Friday, May 7th. Would be happy to meet anyone there!
Privat is another
I worked there the other day with Croissant. It was fairly empty though.

Will be going to Sayulita on Friday on Iโ€™m looking for surfing, hiking, and Latin dance partners dancerskin-tone-2
Not sure if only in Mรฉxico, but the wework web seems is offering one free month of a private office if you do a tour
Hey guys, not sure if I will make it today. I got robbed off my bag and now trying to file a police report ๐Ÿ˜• Viva Mexico! Either see you today or another time! qvfrskcmtvuy oopipegwey gcpgabwxbj
Oh no sorry for you ๐Ÿ˜ž
A friendly warning to take a picture with your phone if an ATM rejects your transaction. Scotia bank in PDC center gave me a message for failure to withdraw 3,000 MXN and then proceeded to request the money from my bank like nothing happened. If I had taken the picture I would have had some proof to offer to my bank, now I have nothing.
If you zoom in you can see my bag on my right side of the chair slowly disappearing... ๐Ÿ˜ฃ
I got my card and phone stolen a month ago, I can only sympathize.. do you need help with anything?
ehkvthoakc Sorry to hear!! Well I am already at a second police station where they hopefully manage to put together a report for my insurance company.. Very kind of you to offer help! prayskin-tone-2
Ok hope everything works out
This happened to me once in Mexico. I called my bank in the US, informed them which transaction had failed, and they opened an investigation. I got the money back after a few weeks. I didn't need to provide any evidence.
This happened to me as well with the same bank when I was in Cabo san Lucas. I called my bank asap but it took them a while to refund the money back to me
mveyezvqse Thank you! I will try to join but perhaps a bit later.. Still waiting for the police file.
Oh man sorry to hear vsqnsupevlvtxs , that sucks, good luck!
fyuzwsdouekm Thanks! See you soon! (Might be later then 4 though)
Iโ€™m here in the front when yโ€™all get here
Ok soon here
votsddwbh just arrived in ๐Ÿ– Puerto Escondido, #mexico
Happened to us in Merida. Cash jammed in the slot. Called the bank right away and were refunded a bit later.
A picture probably helps as well, but Iโ€™d recommend calling your bank immediately
Guyss, we are doing a DN meetup in Cozumel tomorrow night if anybody is around :)
Hey everyone!, plan on going to Mexico City This Sunday, any restrictions I should be worried about?
No ๐Ÿ˜„ Except face masks, checking temperatures and desinfecting hands.
Hi! Has anybody recently traveled the road from Villahermosa to Palenque? I am wondering what is the security situation right now :thinking_face:. I would drive on my own. Thanks for insights! ๐Ÿ™
In case you donโ€™t get a good answer here there is a FB group dedicated to these kinds of things here you can check out
Are you in Vhsa now? I'm from there. It's usually a pretty easy, safe 2 hrs ride. Just go in the day
Thanks UHYHNFELS! Great idea.
jhspueqeeahmb Thatโ€™s great news, thank you! How about driving from Palenque to San Cristobal, still ok or better now?
That one canโ€™t remember.. i think itโ€™s a long curvy ride. Still doable Iโ€™d believe
What happens once the tourist 180 day allowance for Mexico runs out? Do people still do visa runs, or? Iโ€™d like to hear from people whoโ€™ve lived in Mexico for awhile.

We drove Palenque to San Cris in January, was fine but the kids selling roadside were super aggressive at some points blocking the roads spitting at our car when we didnโ€™t buy.

It is a long, curvy drive with a lot of topes, so be ready for that
Iโ€™ve been in Mexico since last July. Border hops to refresh your 180 days is the most common. Note that land crossings may not get you 180 on the way back in - there were stories last year of people only getting 2 weeks upon re-entry from Belize (whose land border is now closed, so a non-issue ATM). I havenโ€™t heard of this on the American border though
I did a border run back in March and booked a cheap flight to Orlando from Cancun ($60), stayed a couple of nights and then hopped back into Cancun. No problem with renewal.
Great, thanks. Sounds like business as usual, then.
Hey All, I will be in CDMX in June for 2 months+, looking to network with other business owners. Currently, I run 3 online businesses (2x Amazon, 1X service). Can anyone recommend any good coworking space or places to be to meet like-minded people?
Hey all, I have three weeks off in June and would love to try to learn surfing. What beach in Mexico would you recommend to try to pick it up? Hoping to find a spot thatโ€™s not too crowded, I hear Puerto Escondido may be crowded. Cheers and thank you!
hi all โ€” I will be in Puerto Vallarta from May 13 until May 19 if anyone wants to meet up for coffee

Just found this Airbnb clone for office space in Mexico| />
Update the Reddit post announcing it was removed. Here's the website|
Howโ€™s the WiFi over there? Planning to go soon, but heard itโ€™s terrible
rnhppozvne Oh dear, sounds intense! I think I might skip this one ๐Ÿ˜„

Best coworking spots in Roma / Condesa?
I donโ€™t think itโ€™s that big of a deal to go over. They are more chill about this. I know of people that paid around a 500 pesos fee at the airport for going over. But Iโ€™m guessing they wonโ€™t allow you to keep going over the 180 days if you make a habit of it.
The question seems to come up every week. NL needs a wiki.
xxngkqalwwqo Have you tried CoWork in Juarez? Kind of a walking distance from Roma ๐Ÿ™‚
Yep, definitely needs a wiki. Thanks oqnhghx and xqbacprduzgopg
vucvtvfgmmp awesome tip, thank you!
I'll be in CDMX until June 5th. If you're up for it, let's meet up. I'm a business owner too. I run the marketing for a publishing business that teaches entrepreneurs how to buy a business.
Good coworking so far in my opinion is a255 in Condesa. Ask for Natalia Meyers.
oh nice, thats great, I plan to arrive the 28th May, so I will be sure to drop you a message
Fly from VHM to Txutal if you can - much easier
yeh likewise?
Great, thanks
Nice. To a lesser extent, there is this, too.

These too:


Although none have spaces in Mexico.
๐Ÿ‘‹ Im wanting to work out of cdmx beg 29 may but wanted to get your take on the current covid situation in the city. Are things open? I had my vaccines here in US and ready to pull trigger on flight but need to verify that things are cool... Thx for any insight from the ground. (I love cdmx!)
Thanks for the heads up ๐Ÿ˜Š
VSA > TGZ ๐Ÿ˜›
Nice. Will โœ… it out
Thanks. Lol. I was lazy
fdtlsfaoqayby Thanks for that info
Hey all, this is probably a repeated question but I am new here. I will be spending two weeks in Mexico City and probably will purchase a local SIM card for data. Any recommendations? I heard that Telcel has the widest coverage, but Movistar is cheaper and faster. Also, should I get at the airport or in the city?
I used Telcel and I was super happy. when I had issues with wifi, I could use mobile hotspot and it was super fast. I bought mine at an OXXO but I am sure you can get it at the airport.
Thanks jvrlycvwaixykg . Regarding prices, how much you paid and how much data you got?
there are a variety of prices, so it does depend on you.

I usually had the highest plan, which was for 500 pesos, 6 GB per month. However was it really great with telcel is that you can always get a lower monthly plan, and have 2 hours unlimited internet , with paying only 15 pesos ( not even 1 euro ). ๐Ÿ™‚
Iโ€™ve used Telcelโ€™s|Amigo packages> for a year now with no problems. Theyโ€™re the same price at all Oxxo so Iโ€™d just get one at the airport so you have it.
Hey guys, does anyone know if any European embassies are issuing Schengen visas right now?
Also, does anyone know what the process for getting residency in Mexico is like?
Yeah, the short answer is that itโ€™s fairly easy as far as immigration processes go. You have to start the process outside of the country, ideally in your home country. You have an interview at a Mexican consulate abroad, get a special visa to re-enter on, and then do an appt at an immigration office in country. If all goes well, you leave with a CURP and Mexican ID.
fyanntqsmdoplyg any idea if its possible to do from within Mexico?
Itโ€™s not. If you want to stay longer, youโ€™re better off overstaying your tourist visa and paying the fee at the airport when you leave. I know plenty of people whoโ€™ve done that and went on to get residency later with no problems. (If you try to extend your tourist visa through the immigration office though, prepare for lots of runaround and hassle.)
oh shoot, ok good to know, thank you!
cfphskvhbttl I should also mention that if you have a US-visa/citizenship and leave Mexico through a land border (e.g Tijuana, Monterrey, etc) they typically donโ€™t even check your FMM for overstays, etc ๐Ÿ™‚ Not an advice, just saying. I never overstayed though. Itโ€™s pretty easy just to cross back and forth every six months for a new FMM.
