How is Merida, Mexico as a digital nomad destination?


in Merida, Mexico by @rusticbohemian | 6yr  | 6 comments

Hey guys.

Iโ€™m thinking of heading to Merida for 2-4 months to see if I like it, and would love to hear from people who live there or have visited for significant periods of time.

How much would it cost to get an apartment with internet per month? Nothing fancy, but not a disgusting place either.

How is the internet speed?

How is public transportation? Can you get around easily by bike, including to grocery stores?

Is a car required? I could drive down from Texas, I suppose.

How do you like living there?

Iโ€™m here now and itโ€™s awesome!

Itโ€™s super safe and cheap to live. I spent like $40 a week on eating out and groceries, itโ€™s great! You can also find some really affordable places via airbnb and if youโ€™re up for it there are some REALLY nice houses here for not very much. Agreed with wanderingdev though, itโ€™s starting to get really hot and I was told it will only get hotter until like July. If youโ€™ve got aircon it fine though. Oh and thereโ€™s a Walmart, so you know, life is good.

Merida is awesome. You could not pay me to ride a bike pretty much in any city in Mexico. Mexican drivers are nuts! Public transport is good and taxis are cheap. I lived in Mexico for 4 years sans car so itโ€™s easily doable. Internet is fast and profilic (in the Yucatan, every public park has free wifi and most have places to plug in and charge while you sit on your device). Most restaurants have it with a password, just ask.

My apartment without internet was $300/month in the centro. It was annoying but also a good excuse to get out and go to the part or a new restaurant/cafe. I also rented a casita with internet but only a hammock to sleep in and a pool to stand in while working (because it was so fecking hot and many places have no AC) and it was $250 on the outskirts of the city in the direction of Motul.

I liked Merida but parts of it are pretty gringo. Itโ€™s a huge retirement/medical hub. It also got WAY too hot for me and very humid. I personally donโ€™t go there from late March - late August. There are also lots of mozzies which I loathe. I prefer the mountains where there are no mozzies and the weather is nice year round.

But if you donโ€™t mind the heat, Merida is great. :slight_smile:

If you go when itโ€™s hot, Altabrisa mall has free wifi, aircon, and first run english movies for just a few $$. I used to spend a LOT of time there when Iโ€™d get stuck in Merida when it was hot. Costs about $.50 to take the bus from the centro to anywhere in Merida.

Any nomads in Arizona, US?

 

in Netherlands by @info132 | 4d 4 days ago | 0 comments

Hi guys,

After the Netherlands, the Bay Area, Colorado and being on the van life for 8 months, I am now in Sedona, AZ with a few other digital nomads. We are sharing a home here and are wondering if there are more like minded people in the area.

We do a bunch of hikes and campouts in the northern of Arizona. If you would like to connect with us, please do so :)

Tax advisor for permanent nomads?


by @eljaques | 11d 10 days ago | 1 comment

I'm in need of a tax advisor who understands "our" typical situation. I'm all good on being legal on taxes at this point, but as I'm doing more investing and there's more compliance and KYC and such, it's getting more complicated to deal with this topic. Not living in my country of citizenship, company in another country, resident in yet another country, banking in a different country ... you know how it is, a pile of red flags.

Would be great to find a good tax advisor to sort things in a way that makes my situation as "explainable" and easily dealt with as possible. Any leads?

Anyone want to share an airbnb villa in Mexico?


in Mexico by @wouternomad | 20d 19 days ago | 3 comments

I will be traveling/working through Mexico with my dog February to April. My plan is to stay in Sayulita for about 2-4 weeks, then travel south along the cost.

Is there anyone who wants to share an airbnb apartment? I was thinking of renting a private villa, but because these are large and have multiple rooms, I was wondering if there are fellow nomads wanting to share? Iโ€™m open to other locations as well (Puerto Vallerta, Oaxaca, and everything in between these two locations.

How to get into the digital nomad lifestyle?


in Switzerland by @filiptk | 23d 23 days ago | 1 comment

Hi, I've got a question to anyone who had experience with the digital nomad lifestyle. I'm 24, I'm in my last year of university doing computer science, got 3 years of experience mostly doing web development.

I never liked the idea of staying in one place, getting a job and growing roots - hence the will to take the opportunity and travel the world. My main question is โ€“ how do I go about it? Are there any useful resources I could look into?

How do I go about insurance and such once I decide to move. I currently live in Switzerland and do freelance work for one company. It's not a lot, since my studies don't allow me to pick up a full time job, but it allows me to cover simple expenses.

I'd be happy to get some insight into how things work and also happy to network with anyone interested.

Anybody bring their car to Mexico instead of flying?


in Mexico by @digitaldiva | 3mo 3 months ago | 1 comment

Iโ€™m curious whether anyone drove to Mexico instead of flying and used their car down there. Iโ€™ve heard bad stories of people driving down there but not sure I believe them. How safe is it to drive through rural areas, and to park in cities? It would be cool to have the car to explore while there.

Anyone know of any groups or resources for Ph.D. students working on dissertation while living as a digital nomad? I know there are several virtual writing groups around, but wondered if there were any specifically for digital nomads, particularly those who are dissertating.

Does international health insurance for digital nomads exist?

 

by @al_steffen | 7mo 7 months ago | 59 comments

Hey Nomads!

Iโ€™m looking for an international health insurance (no travel insurance) for my nomadic life. It should cover the basic services and at least be accepted in the EU (itโ€™s ok if itโ€™s not accepted in the US as Iโ€™m aware they rarely are). Nice to have: enter into a contract online. Anyone got a good experience or a recommendation?

Thanks in advance!

I have finally saved enough money to start investing. What company gives good, diversified access to stock, ETFs and mutual funds?

I dream of being a digital nomad? How do I do it?


by @programmingmark | 8mo 8 months ago | 2 comments

Hello digital nomad!

I dream of being an independent digital nomad. But it feels very elusive & unattainable with my success rate. In full disclosure, whilst I have dreamed about making money online since high school; I have not earned a single cent making money online. $0, nada, zilch!! On the contrary, I have spent a lot of time & money on books, podcasts. Even though I have spent a lot of time reading/listening to others, I do not have anything to show for it!

I have made attempts in the past to start an online business, but these fizzle out quite quickly when I do not see traction especially when the goal I have set myself is too high.

Instead of reaching for the ultimate nomadic lifestyle goal, I want to start much smaller. Really small! I am simply looking to make $50 profit per month from a new online business. Thatโ€™s it.

I need some advice from you please!

  • Is $50 profit too low? How long did it take you to earn $50 profit per month?

  • What is a good way of achieving this goal?

Thanks

How do digital nomads pay tax?


by @rodriigovieira | 9mo 8 months ago | 19 comments

Hello everyone! Iโ€™m new here and probably this is a very newbie question, but it doesnโ€™t leave my head.

How do you, nomads, pay your taxes? I mean, if youโ€™re constantly traveling, how are you going to pay taxes for a certain country if you are going to stay there a short period of time?
Or do you return to your โ€œoriginal countryโ€ and then pay them?

By the way, this forum has very nice cool formatting features! :smile:

My first time nomad-ing... Spain or Portugal?


in Portugal by @jasraj | 9mo 9 months ago | 6 comments

Hey everyone,

Iโ€™m a freelance + nomad newbie, off for my 1st proper trip in May. Iโ€™m wanting to spend a month somewhere and go from there.

I just came back from Slovenia/Ljubljana and loved it there (just a week). I donโ€™t mind โ€œsleepierโ€ places par-say, as long as theyโ€™re close to a beach or nature of some kind. In fact, I kinda like places less-busy and a bit smaller/cosier.

Iโ€™m been swaying towards Porto, but have been impressed by the rave reviews Iโ€™ve seen for Valencia.

-> Have you every nomad-ed in a Spanish/Portuguese city? Iโ€™d love to know where and what you liked/disliked :slight_smile:

Thanks! :slight_smile:

Anyone know an accountant for Canadian nomads/expats?


by @noam_lightstone | 10mo 9 months ago | 16 comments

Hey guys, this was my first year as a Canadian nomad.

As far as I know of, Canadians donโ€™t pay taxes if they do not live in the country for 6 months.

But Iโ€™d like to talk to an accountant or someone who does Canadian taxes specifically for expats and nomads to get clear on the rules and for help on my return coming up.

Does anyone know someone who specializes in Canada who can help? Iโ€™ve seen plenty of US recommendations but none for us canucks.

Thanks guys!
