Fastest growing
remote work hubs
of 2022

Remote work is now on an exponential trajectory and growing fast. With its growth, thousands of destinations, from tiny surf villages to cosmopolitan mega cities, are now competing to attract remote workers. Every second, Nomad List tracks the movement of tens of thousands of digital nomads to spot the currently trending places to live and work remotely.

Destinations here are ranked by growth rates of check-ins made to places by tens of thousands of Nomad List members using live data analyzing 181,462 check-ins. The primary rank is the most recent growth in check-ins.

These table shows the growth in check-ins for each year in the last 5 years, as well as the last 5 year's growth numbers, and it's ranked by the last 2 year's growth numbers to give you an idea of the fastest growing remote work hubs. It also shows the current rank on Nomad List, so you can gauge the popularity of the place.

Note that the COVID19 pandemic in 2020 has influenced the numbers in 2020 and 2021 and will probably continue doing so for awhile. For example: places with less travel restrictions (like Mexico) have grown faster for that reason, amongst others.
