Hey gang, I’ve traveled pretty extensively through Central America and was recently in Colombia.
I love Latin America and want to continue to travel/work here, but internet connectivity is a constant issue. Hostel wifi is always hit or miss and when it does work, it’s often slow or there’s no convenient place to work.
Cafes are even worse most of the time.
I’ve tried local sim cards with data and sometimes that works well, but skype calls eat the data right up and in many locations, the speeds are slow.
I’m willing to pay more for more reliable internet, but I haven’t found anything…
Wondering what most of you fine folks do and if anyone has any suggestions.
Also, what are some alternatives to hostels?
I know you can use AirBnB, but the locals jack the prices up on there (if you’re in an area you can find anything on AirBnB). Apartment rentals can be found pretty inexpensively, but I like to stay moving and usually don’t want to stay somewhere for even a month.
On top of all this, I like to surf and the coastal towns tend to be the worst for wifi.
I’m a little frustrated and wondering if anyone has any suggestions I haven’t thought of?
