Most ISP's nowadays ship a modem that has a WiFi router, but that router is total junk
hidden for non-members2mo
... Someday I'm going to make a video on this topic for nomads
hidden for non-members2mo
Another video idea, is what VPN a digital nomad could use
hidden for non-members2mo
vktvbmqbljycqe I'd definitely watch that video haha and fndldjxj I use NordVPN, didn't know there was much of a difference from one to another for a nomad 🤔
hidden for non-members2mo
Ahoy! I have landed

We should have a cdmx nomadlist Meetup folks;

I could likely be convinced to stay Sunday night 😁
hidden for non-members2mo
I'm going to be in MX soonish for like 6months too
hidden for non-members2mo
I saw in #_gear you have an RB15. What kind of things do you use the GPU for?
hidden for non-members2mo
I'm currently in Puebla, but get up to CDMX here and there
hidden for non-members2mo
Gaming, some ML projects. Video editing when I feel like it. Some 3D stuff as well for some other project.
hidden for non-members2mo
I'll be in Guadalajara and thereabouts. Might have to go CDMX for work though.

Hi everyone. I'm part of this snazzy agency for freelance development, fiance, product management and UX/UI design. It's called Toptal (Top Talent so you can remember). I'm helping organize an event for them. It's a free cowork day with Toptal, if you are interested in learning more about the agency or just want to network there.

It's this Thursday at Coffice. Register with this link to confirm your space. Hope to see you there. www.toptal.com/community/events/2019-10-24/autumn-coworking-day

If you're intered in applying you can message me directly and I can give you a referral link that gives us both bonus cash if you're accepted.
hidden for non-members2mo
I remember I applied for toptal years ago and was accepted but a) the rates were lower than I liked and b) the contract stipulated that I had to submit a headshot and they were given the right to use said headshot in any advertisement/public notice/anything to do with the company, for whatever reason
hidden for non-members2mo
and I found that second bit super distasteful
hidden for non-members2mo
signed up for it ytmcodtypgui you had me sold at _free cowork day_
hidden for non-members2mo
Yeah, i think their rates tend to be lower, but you can still find good paying work there. I don't have any comment on the headshot thing, It's listed in the TOS of what they anticipate to collect / on how they'll use it. Maybe it wasn't written here before though. 🤷
hidden for non-members2mo
I know, it was on the contract I was sent to sign
hidden for non-members2mo
I just find it really offputting that that is a clause
hidden for non-members2mo
and was the primary reason I turned it down
hidden for non-members2mo
Yea, I would find that worrying as well.
hidden for non-members2mo
dunno if anyone here climbs but planning to hit up a climbing gym tomorrow - probably levita near condesa
hidden for non-members2mo
ah sorry to specify - in cdmx
hidden for non-members2mo
if anyone wants to join!
hidden for non-members2mo
The stupid nomadlist slackbot removed my message on the free cowork day. You can dm me for the link if you're interested.

Hola everyone waveskin-tone-3

I don't climb but I'm big time into hikes gzgbfnqcezchfb if you or anyone else fancies! Also staying near Parque Mexico in CDMX
hidden for non-members2mo
I arrived last week to CDMX and planning to stay one month here. If anyone wants to meetup for a coworking session, coffee or drink, I am up for it! I'm staying in Roma Norte and looking forward to connet with other nomads and entrepreneurs in the area

Sweet! I usually mix up btw working from home, wework, El pendulo, and blend station

I am working today from El Pendulo Roma Norte (https://goo.gl/maps/CRUaEzgEgtJNauwn8). What about a coworking sesion here tomorrow or Wednesday? ighivzgr rjnabnjlzaovrk

totally agree on climbing being a great motivation for learning spanish. i doubt you'll need much spanish for the act of climbing though, especially since most people will also know the required words in english
hidden for non-members1mo
but it's the socializing part that i think makes it more important. like hanging out with people, making small talk, understanding what they're saying to each other, etc
hidden for non-members1mo
Yayyy goalzz
hidden for non-members1mo
Goodness that looks amazing. Thanks for sending.
hidden for non-members1mo
The cafe is beautiful too, and most of the food is excellent
hidden for non-members1mo
20MBs WiFi, great food, on a small pond with ducks, swans, egrets, and butterflies, surrounded by trees, can't hear street traffic, 15m walk from home... For 4x coffees, the two dishes above, and a bottle of water was $270mxn.

Downside Chairs aren't great for long stays
hidden for non-members1mo
Shit... One of my Amazon deliveries from the USA got handed off to FedEx. See you next year, box 😛
hidden for non-members1mo
Whew, it's the least important item of the order 😌
hidden for non-members1mo
I hope the kids are out trick or treating tomorrow too. Going for a night bicycle group ride, and going to bring bags of candy to make all the local dentists happy
hidden for non-members1mo
Any experience with the Sayulita Co-working space?
hidden for non-members1mo
It’s owned by the same owners as PV coworking if I remember correctly.
hidden for non-members1mo
Any idea what surf lessons and board rental run?
hidden for non-members1mo
I spent one horrible day in Sayulita and vowed to never go back so I’m not the best to ask. But I know PV really well.
hidden for non-members1mo
What happened?
hidden for non-members1mo
Water went out — no bathrooms were available except the ravine. It was overrun with tourists. Not my type of place.
hidden for non-members1mo
jesus
hidden for non-members1mo
Ironically I later found out that the man responsible for the city water system was the father in law of an employee. This father in law had his own water system also installed at his house in sayulita because the city system wasn’t great.
hidden for non-members1mo
I’m sure my experience was atypical and I shouldn’t be so down on Sayulita but I have everything I could want in PV so I don’t need to go back.
hidden for non-members1mo
jeez, would be nice if politicians that are responsible for something are directly impacted by the quality of it 😛
hidden for non-members1mo
I was in Sayulita last year and loved it. But in my opinion it’s a place for a day or two, not more. Feels isolated. Puerto Vallarta seem to be better… Although.. A bit boring too 😄
hidden for non-members1mo
Oh? Why boring?
hidden for non-members1mo
Feels a but locked down ans small. I prefer to have transportation options. And Sayulita felt too small.
hidden for non-members1mo
Those small towns are nice if you seek that limiting factor, but if you're looking for ongoing easy streams of entertaining things, they can feel restricted
hidden for non-members1mo
I spent a few months in a neighboring town, at a time I needed that restriction, and it felt great at the time
hidden for non-members1mo
That’s why I recommend PV - Sayulita is not that far, while accessible. As well as other towns. Although, damn I had such a bad stomach infection while in PV. Thankfully I can communicate in Spanish, so getting a medication there was not a problem (and not that expensive).
hidden for non-members1mo
Checked out the "wall" which legit is a wall in a mall
hidden for non-members1mo
But with 33 m walls it's good for endurance training
hidden for non-members1mo
And you can lead
hidden for non-members1mo
Also the guy who belayed me and I did not share a language at all nor did we use common climbing terms
hidden for non-members1mo
Which makes me a tad nervous about having him belay me for lead
hidden for non-members1mo
That's a big wall right there
hidden for non-members1mo
Srsly
hidden for non-members1mo
Also ppl are pretty nice
hidden for non-members1mo
Got invited to a barbeque lol
hidden for non-members1mo
Also met someone who climbs a lot at El portero chico
hidden for non-members1mo
ncnbfyqyipgmn is that in cdmx or in puebla?
hidden for non-members1mo
Cdmx
hidden for non-members1mo
That's pretty cool. Will definitely check it out. Thanks Sneha
hidden for non-members1mo
Today is the moment of truth.... Will FedEx actually deliver a package or are they going to put it into "We don't know where it is" limbo for the fifth time?
hidden for non-members1mo
I gave up and started having them deliver to me c/o World Service Centers. If you're far away from one of those, though, that won't help
hidden for non-members1mo
You can redirect currentPackage to a center if it goes into limbo
hidden for non-members1mo
I've lost all faith in FedEx here. But, mercifully it's just pieces of plastic for my bike, so I'm not super concerned. The real goods are coming via DHL, which has done a good job at residential delivery
hidden for non-members1mo
For people chatting here about Sayulita. The water going out, the sewage overflowing. trash pilling up. electricity outages is probably of the highest amount of instances I've experienced of any of the places I traveled to. It's unfortunately. Overall, it has great community and whatnot so it's worth it. The cowork space is solid. It has its own generators and its own fiber lines so it will continue to work (fans only) if the rest of the town is in black out or having issues. I honestly really really like that cowork space for how efficient it is in these cases.
hidden for non-members1mo
pgvwloobuohjke just send it to an center and it will be faster and reliable
hidden for non-members1mo
Didn't try that this time. They actually navigated to my house correctly, and called
hidden for non-members1mo
I think Google fixed their issue with navigating to this particular street. Uber/Eats has been getting here more reliably too

my colleague finally helped me figure out the airbnb cat’s name - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaneque

Anyone in puerto vallarta and going to Los angeles area soon and can help with a phone delivery?
hidden for non-members1mo
anyone know of good yoga/meditation retreats in mexico?
hidden for non-members1mo
If you don't get any recommendations, I'd say in Sayulita, Tulum, Puerto Escondido or Puerto Vallarta, there's likely some in those areas
hidden for non-members1mo
Ah, my favorite sound while in Mexico 😄
hidden for non-members1mo
i know that is a huge thing in atitlan, but that's in guate so might not work for you
hidden for non-members1mo
Yup. or Mazunte (off of Puerto Escondido).

i now have a food baby
hidden for non-members1mo
Now I'm hungry
hidden for non-members1mo
How feasible is it to eat low carb/Keto in Mexico?
hidden for non-members1mo
Depends where you're at. In a bigger/touristy city you won't have much of an issue
hidden for non-members1mo
PV?
hidden for non-members1mo
and if you cook at home. i've done keto in many areas of mexico
hidden for non-members1mo
you just eat the fillings of things. 🙂
hidden for non-members1mo
in many places you can just get a giant plate of fillings and a stack of tortillas to make your own tacos, so just skip the tacos
hidden for non-members1mo
and grilled meats are popular
hidden for non-members1mo
You won't have an issue in PV imho. There's decent grocery stores and a good selection of restaurants
hidden for non-members1mo
Neat
hidden for non-members1mo
epaebjjcwi in mexico city, it’s super easy - i have like 3-4 go-to salad/bowl places plus there’s a ton of grocery stores where u can buy healthy ingredients
hidden for non-members1mo
and markets too
hidden for non-members1mo
today, however, i’m fully taking advantage of my eat-out day
hidden for non-members1mo
(also i never thought i’d say this but this may have been too much chilaquiles)
hidden for non-members1mo
(i may have overdone it folks)
hidden for non-members1mo
My goal is to live a much healthier life style than I do now. Surf in the morning, go low carb with food, find positive friends, but still be within reach of some fun places on the weekends. Sent in my proposal to my boss and waiting to hear back...
hidden for non-members1mo
🤞
hidden for non-members1mo
I think the number one thing that has made me healthier is cooking more honestly
hidden for non-members1mo
PV definitely has an undercurrent of healthy living, you won't have to search long for it. Best of luck with those goals!
hidden for non-members1mo
💯 on cooking more
hidden for non-members1mo
(Really the main thing my nutritionist achieved was getting me to make an effort to cook and cook creatively)
hidden for non-members1mo
YouTube is a gold mine there, to learn how to cook healthy and using simple and easy ingredients
hidden for non-members1mo
I actually just got a personal trainer
hidden for non-members1mo
Even when I go to MX I want to work with him virtually
hidden for non-members1mo
ja shouldn’t be hard for you to find a gym here either
hidden for non-members1mo
Definitely not. Gyms are everywhere here. Go to the dustiest of little beach towns, and there's an equally sand covered well used gym and a park with outdoor equipment
hidden for non-members1mo
also re finding positive friends - i can only speak to climbing, but it’s been pretty easy to find some climbing friends at gyms here
hidden for non-members1mo
both expats and locals that is
hidden for non-members1mo
i am presuming the same will be true for surfing or just generally healthy friends
hidden for non-members1mo
That's what I'm hoping. I find the ocean therapeutic.
hidden for non-members1mo
it is quite nice - even a day of me faceplanting on every wave is relaxing 🙂
hidden for non-members1mo
(also speaking spanish will obviously accelerate the friend-finding)
hidden for non-members1mo
Are there many Chinese people around?
hidden for non-members1mo
Not really, you might find a few if you look though. There's a chinese family in my neighborhood (they own a take out place in the mall that I eat at)
hidden for non-members1mo
I made a Japanese friend at the climbing gym 🤷
hidden for non-members1mo
I think in general you’re more likely to find expats in larger metropolitan centers
hidden for non-members1mo
... and beaches
hidden for non-members1mo
At any rate I'll be investing in private Spanish lessons
hidden for non-members1mo
hmmmm this chilaquiles source doesn’t seem to be top notch
hidden for non-members1mo
😬

hidden for non-members1mo
Oh dear
hidden for non-members1mo
contact wqzjipyxrhczh for additional guidance to avoid this in the future
hidden for non-members1mo
Check out Mazunte! Hridaya yoga offers silent retreats & yoga classes, and Casa Om offers many classes as well. And in any case it’s an extremely chill town with lots of other yoga and massage studios. Only downside is that the internet is shit in general (just Siddharta has proper WiFi). And the only atms in town were stolen.. so bring cash ;)

Doesn't make sense to have a separate Mexico City channel. Not enough discussion and most people need info about multiple areas, including DF.

Hello 👋 I’ll be in Mexico City starting on the 7th of December. Would anyone have suggestions concerning finding an apartment beyond just using AirBnb? I’ll be looking into monthly rents in Condessa / Roma Norte quarters. Thank you.
hidden for non-members1mo
For a month or so, AirBnB or Vrbo are your best options. More than that and you'll likely need a lease, which is a bit complicated
hidden for non-members29d
hidden for non-members29d
i'm not the source, saw it on fb somewhere so .. probably? 😛
hidden for non-members29d
I've had luck finding a room in a shared apartment before on facebook in cdmx

For a 3-month sublet

Yes, I did. I was just wondering if anyone here had any personal recommendations.

I understand that azcadaqrotwqsl but I don't think it is unreasonably to ask for recommendations from the chat.

Yesterday, I took the spreadsheet's advice and it lead me to a taco restaurant that was no longer in business.

Fair, I'm not saying it's the end all, but it's a place to start for sure. I'm sure it could use some love and edits

True. Not sure about many nomads, Los Cabos get a bit old. (they're small towns)

Cool, I'd like to see it. Have been considering one lately, now that they're getting smaller and smaller

I need to do a size comparison of the Mavic and air.

my guess is it would also work on the flipside and not allow high heat

ovgfgtuogsewqvj I'm more of a cafe person so can't help you
hidden for non-members18d
I think I'm too much of a goody two-shoes to hang on this stripper trip, I'll probably be looking uncomfortable and apologizing profusely to strippers who are more alarmed by my behavior than yours.
hidden for non-members18d
remember we can only fit 1 of them in the trunk of each uber
hidden for non-members18d
so its important to choose wisely
hidden for non-members18d
accopnukai drones or strippers?

Why not both?
hidden for non-members18d
Uber has a silly rule that you can only have one dead stripper in the back of the trunk per vehicle unless you get an uberxl
hidden for non-members18d
Strippers with drones! There’s the next new million peso idea.

Hi folks! We're thinking of heading to Puerto Escondido next week after Oaxaca.
hidden for non-members15d
Problem is, my partner needs to be able to do video calls and upload video, so wifi is a concern.
hidden for non-members15d
hidden for non-members15d
Is it feasible to find the good wifi? Are there any special tips?
hidden for non-members15d
if you need to "upload video" i would probably pick a different location
hidden for non-members15d
Selina in Zicatela actually has decent WiFi. I worked there and I have video calls and it was fine.
hidden for non-members15d
last i was there (a bit over a year ago) rumor was that selina paid for a dedicated line to be run
hidden for non-members15d
and while that seems ridiculous... i've never seen anywhere with a comparable speed
hidden for non-members15d
Wouldn’t be surprised if that is true. For Puerto Escondido I would definitely recommend Selina’s coworking if you need a solid connection ruhkailmwmwox
hidden for non-members15d
Sweet! Thanks everyone for the recommendation. Sounds like Selina is the way to go
hidden for non-members15d
Is the coworking adjacent to the Selina hostel, or are they just named the same?
hidden for non-members15d
It’s either next to the hostel, or inside. Can’t remember. But it is the same company

Sweet. Thanks U8FUBFCAE!

I'm booking a cheap flight from viva aerosbus, and it says this. "When you select this fare, you agree to wave your rights to all Documented Baggage." Does anyone know what that means?
hidden for non-members14d
your luggage gets put into a wood chipper
hidden for non-members14d
but seriously, they are saying you don’t get any checked bags i believe
hidden for non-members14d
you still have your rights to undocumented baggage
hidden for non-members14d
so make sure you never document your undocumented baggage! 🙊

(i'm talking smack)
hidden for non-members14d
sixfrpyikxjlxn I am Spanish, booked my flights on the spanish version of the site and I found it confusing too. I am 99% sure “documented baggage” is checked luggage. I presume this is some sort of marketing strategy to scare people into the normal fare which does include checked baggage, I presume.
hidden for non-members14d
Okay that's what I was thinking. I think it's something like you won't have the opportunity to potentially be able to check a luggage in as an add on.

Think basic economy fare in the US

I can provide neighborhood recommendations.
hidden for non-members13d
Zona romántica if you want to be in the action.

Amapas to get away from the action but still walkable.
hidden for non-members13d
Conchas Chinas for great beaches.
hidden for non-members13d
Feel free to AMA
hidden for non-members12d
I liked being up north of the romantic zone, felt a little more laid back and "authentic" perhaps, but still had a lot of nice little food places and good beach access.
hidden for non-members12d
i really liked my airbnb up there but it was a 3 bedroom so probably not what you're looking for.

Restaurants, shops, bars, etc. It can get rowdy but most of the time it’s not.
hidden for non-members12d
+1 for the Amapas recommendation, but the best place I've stayed in PV was actually slightly up the hill in Alta Vista on the south east edge of the Zona Romántica.
hidden for non-members12d
a few minutes walk to Los Muertos or anywhere in the old town, but still very quiet and with incredible views across the bay if you find a place facing the right direction.
hidden for non-members12d
Any thoughts about Playa del Carmen? I am in CDMX atm but thinking of going there next month. Looking for recommendations for places to stay and coworkings
hidden for non-members12d
It’s hot. The sargassum sucks for beach time.
hidden for non-members12d
The noxious gas is considered quite bad for people at a few ppm
hidden for non-members12d
The taxis have a known issue of taking people to get robbed
hidden for non-members12d
And there are random shootouts that kill journalists with suspiciously high incidence

Internet is iffy. No way to tell if two buildings are going to have the same WiFi even if next to each other
hidden for non-members12d
Hosts mostly report Telmex sold speed which has no relationship to delivered speed

Power outages and water outages were common when I was there

xbxbkeduot what, are you talking about PDC?

Yeah pdc

I am not going back long term. It wasn’t fun.
hidden for non-members12d
And I stayed in 3 places.
hidden for non-members12d
where would you go
hidden for non-members12d
Holbox is nice but awful internet. Great for weekends.

Merida is supposed to be awesome, but I haven’t tried it.

Cancun is nuts but the WiFi does work properly as does the cell towers.

PV is awesome. CDMX has a ton of nice stuff.
hidden for non-members12d
Oh and in pdc if you’re on one of the carriers (forget which) the call quality is poor because they’re using older towers with a very restricted codec.. same one they use in Holbox to carry more calls per tower iirc
hidden for non-members12d
There are over 1 million words in the English language, but there are no combination of them which can articulately describe how much I want to hit pdc with a chair.
hidden for non-members12d
you want to go WWF on it
hidden for non-members12d
And keep in mind i am in Santiago right now and protestors are setting fire to the road in front of my building, and throwing bricks at ubers and there are signs begging protestors not to attack my building because thee are children in it, and I have been tear gassed multiple times in the last 3 weeks here... and I think Santiago is quite nice by comparison and things work fine and I’m coming back.
hidden for non-members12d
So my bar is not exactly high here guys for a place to redeem itself.
hidden for non-members12d
Wow. And I thought I wasn’t a fan of PDC….
hidden for non-members12d
I could go on but it would be a waste of time.

Note if you dive apparently pdc is really awesome
hidden for non-members12d
how's the diving in Santiago though?
hidden for non-members12d
Once the earthquake happens that rips open the earth, I imagine quite good
hidden for non-members12d
Oh! And there have been multiple trembles and earthquakes while I have been here in Santiago. No joke.. still better than pdc.
hidden for non-members12d
I didn’t expect to hear bad things about Playa. Anyone with a positive experience there or any recommendations for places where I can dive and work at the same time (in MX)?
hidden for non-members12d
Playa is a bit what you make of it... There's definitely a lot of nomads and expats there, some for many years. If you want to dive, I'd definitely suggest you check it out csobhbqiejr
hidden for non-members12d
Thanks U04BRT3UC. I guess I need to see it and decide if I like it. I am just a bit concern about how safe it is.

In general, you should be OK. Stay away from drugs and heavy users, get an apartment in a decent side of town

gqitmetxgkv my gf and I were in PDC earlier this year and went on some amazing dives at Good Vibes. Can confirm, it is great for dives and is plenty safe, but it’s certainly a town made for tourists
hidden for non-members11d
I deal with PDC strictly because of the diving
hidden for non-members11d
Were there not the cenotes there I probably would find other places to go instead
hidden for non-members11d
Baja has some lovely diving supposedly but of course it’s not cenotes
hidden for non-members11d
Basically the cenotes are the only caves in the world I have any interest in diving so I’m stuck with PDC
hidden for non-members11d
There are some nice spots there though and I didn’t have any of the problems pbbfauocyl did 😂
hidden for non-members11d
i concur omeaqbqddpm PDC is great for diving. with all the amazing coral reefs (by PDC and Cozumel), and the mindblowing cenotes, it’s a great dive destination. however, i am also not a huge fan of the town itself, and it’s a bit too touristy for me. i prefer Puerto Vallarta (PV) which also has great diving, great clean beaches/ocean with little to no sargassum (from what i remember), and the local culture has a stronger presence, IMO.
hidden for non-members11d
on that note, i’m heading to PV for two weeks over NYE if anyone is around!
hidden for non-members11d
I'd add very positive votes for Merida and PV, but I haven't been to PDC.

I spent a few weeks in PDC in August 2018.  Felt safe on Calle Quinta Avenida, the main walking street.  However a couple nights before I left, the bar that I frequented while I was there (Baaxal Sport Bar) got blown up - a bomb got thrown into the bar. My apartment was only 2 blocks away, so the noise definitely woke me up when it happened.

not sure if things have changed any, but it seemed the further you get away from town, the worst the internet situation is. Odd enough, 4G hotspot on playa zicatela worked incredibly well though

hidden for non-members6d
URD8A4528br />Puebla, I know really well (currently here). It's a quiet place, with excellent weather year round, less expensive than CDMX and Oaxaca, but with things to do... But, you need to have a good grasp on spanish to really find the things and get around, and to get involved. Neighboring town of Cholula is really pretty

Oaxaca don't know as well, but there's a fair bit of expats and nomads that come through. It's not as modern in most parts, but it has a lot of interesting culture and nature around it. Because of tourism, there's a fair bit more english speakers.

Cancun, unless you're staying at a resort to decompress, I'd suggest one of the neighboring towns like Playa del Carmen, Tulum or a small beach town. Cancun itself just isn't that interesting.
hidden for non-members6d
Also, if you want come to Puebla, look me up. I'll show you around... It's my opportunity to touristy things :D
hidden for non-members6d
Thanks for all the recommendations!! I was thinking about cholula already, I'm booking around there too

Cholula is far more accessible to visit. It's a really pretty town too, with lots of bars and restaurants. I keep thinking to move to that side of town, for various reasons

The cities we chose to travel to are all very personal, based on needs and desires. Mexico has a lot of variety to offer, which is why it's so popular with nomads
