Is anyone in Tenerife? I'm moving there for at least 6 months


in Tenerife, Spain by @andrea3018 | 4yr  | 9 comments

Hello Nomads,
is anyone in Tenerife at the moment? Iโ€™m moving there from the 1st of August and not getting out of it for at least 6 months.
Iโ€™m going to stay in Puerto De La Cruz.
Do any of you has ever been there and do you recommend this city to me? Or should I look for an apartment elsewhere in Tenerife?
Also, how do you find cheap long-term houses there? I would love one with a private pool.

Thanks,
Andrea

Why online it says that the entire month of August will cost me 700โ‚ฌ? Thatโ€™s a lot!
Is it because of the high season or because I have to negotiate there, offline and locally?

Thanks,

Iโ€™ve been living in Tenerife since October of last year but in the Capitol of Santa Cruz. Since I was here to work remotely but also reclaim my Spanish citizenship, I opted to sign a rental contract, which runs 1/3 the cost of an Airbnb.

If you plan to stay more than 3 months, I would strongly recommend that. Any leasing office can help you and their fee (one month) is easily saved with the hugely reduced rent. All you need is a passport.

I do not particularly enjoy living in Santa Cruz. Itโ€™s more of a pueblo than a true city โ€“ although it doesnโ€™t look like it. The locals in Santa Cruz donโ€™t have as much interaction with foreigners as in other parts of the island and so they can be a bit reserved and stand-offish. Though they are warm on first meeting, itโ€™s hard to get to know them or break into their circles.

Few locals go out in the evenings, and entertain at home instead. This is very different from other parts of Spain. After 7pm itโ€™s pretty dead except for a few streets with shops or bars. This is true throughout most of the island with the exception of the South.

No matter where you live, get involved with some kind of local activity to meet people. To say the people here have โ€œisland mentalityโ€) as in Hawaii would be a polite way of putting it. Iโ€™ve had rocks thrown at me while surfing, and had a guy punch me in the face just walking down the street. But this was all in the Bajamar area which is notoriously redneck. Visit but beware. Haha.

Iโ€™ve only spent a few days in Puerto de la Cruz, and while itโ€™s pretty, itโ€™s also pretty freaking dead most of the year. This was once the hot spot for travelers but no more. If you donโ€™t speak German, you wonโ€™t be able to interact with most visitors. And further, most visitors there are old and dying. That being said, there is a co-working space there that you linked to, but every time I went it was completely empty. For the price they ask, Iโ€™d suggest you check it out first. If youโ€™re gonna be alone you can save the loot and work from home.

As stated by someone else, car rentals are cheap. You can actually rent a car monthly for 300 euros, which is a screaming deal. This includes full insurance and theyโ€™ll even take cash, so thereโ€™s no need to let them have your card on file. You can then take that car on the ferry to other islands, which is a great way to explore.

There is also a great bus network that covers the whole island which is super cheap. Not sure what the other poster was talking aboutโ€ฆsounds like they only explored taxis. These buses have pretty much 24-7 service along major routes and you can cross the island for about 3 euros. Itโ€™s a great way to get around, comfortable and air conditioned.

Tenerife is full of awesome hiking, fishing, surfing. If you like nature, youโ€™ll love it. If you want a more cosmopolitan experience with lots of digital nomads, definitely go to Gran Canaria instead. With only 40 miles between them, these islands are worldโ€™s apart. Iโ€™d suggest visiting both before locking anything down in terms of housing.

In closing, just donโ€™t expect to โ€œexperience Spainโ€ while here in the Canaries. The islands are mostly full of Venezuelans and Cubans. This means people are even more โ€œtranquiloโ€ than in Spain. Plans made are never firm, and expect things that should happen quickly to take a long time.

The food is not Spanish by any means and rather bland. But Iโ€™m from California and eat like a Mexican, so maybe itโ€™s just my taste. Not saying itโ€™s bad, just not very good either. If youโ€™ve been to Colombia, the food experience is similar, but the locals arenโ€™t as friendly.

Iโ€™d rate it a B- compared to other places Iโ€™ve been. But you can live insanely cheap and the weather is great.

Iโ€™m leaving to live in Madrid Aug 15 so if you wanna meet up when you arrive let me know.

Thank you so much for all these informations.
Where have you find such a cheap car rental?
I have been through many websites but the minimum price I saw for a rent is 600 a month.
Which one did you get the car from?
I would also like to meet you, if it is possible.
It would be very interesting to connect with ambitious and kind people like you. (we also both work remotely, in a way or another, so Iโ€™m definetely interesting in offering you a tea and talk about it :slight_smile: if youโ€™d like).

Thank you so much again for all these precious informations,
Andrea

I returned from Puerto de la Cruz last month, I had been there for just over 2 months from April - June and had such an awesome time. I stayed in the co-living and worked in the co-working space offered by coworkinginthesun.com. In my opinion it was a little over priced for what it was, but there was a good group of us there at that time mostly in our 20โ€™s and 30โ€™s and we all hung out together. I also rented a car from a company called โ€œorlandoโ€ (but booked it online through a comparison website) which cost around ยฃ190 for 30 days (thatโ€™s without the full insurance and I also had to pay around โ‚ฌ50 for the initial fuel, but I could return the car empty). The awesome thing with the canary islands is their incredibly low tax; petrol is around โ‚ฌ0.85 a litre (at least it was while I was there a month ago). Also, I was 24 at the time (turned 25 last month), so was still classed as a young driver when I hired the car. I used travelsupermarket.com to book the car. Iโ€™m returning to Puerto on August 25th and using the co-living and co-working space from Co-Working in the Sun again for at least a month, so I may see you there if youโ€™re going to use the co-working space. Otherwise drop me a message nearer the time and weโ€™ll go for a beer. Iโ€™ve been told thereโ€™s going to be 4 other co-workers there around the time Iโ€™m there :slight_smile:

Hello!

I was in tenerife last month, in Puerto de La Cruz (My brother lives there with his family).

I was in an AirBNB really close to the beach and with an awesome WIFI (20mb, constants) and location (Av Venezuela, near Surf Beach and restaurants. I also found some very nice cafรฉ to work).

The public transportation is expensive there, so Iโ€™d recomment to rent a car for a day if you pretend to go tour to the south part of the island or to La Laguna - Santa Cruz, it cost around 25โ‚ฌ a day and itโ€™s waaaay cheaper than any taxi.

Tho I never went there, I was planning to, so I asked for a coworking space and everyone told me this one was nice: http://www.coworkinginthesun.com/

I hope it helps!

Hi !

Iโ€™ll be moving to Tenerife at the end of October (and stay there for about 4 months). I know people there, and La Laguna has been recommended to me a lot, probably the worst weather in Tenerife for the winter, but still a super nice weather for a european winter. Santa Cruz is another option, bigger city, but also less beautiful. Anyway Santa Cruz and La Laguna are super close.

Anyone want to share an airbnb villa in Mexico?


in Mexico by @wouternomad | 19d 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.

Best place in South East Asia to live for 6+ months per year


in Indonesia by @miklaskroager | 3mo 3 months ago | 1 comment

We're looking for a country in South East Asia that can function as our base, mainly for tax purposes. Meaning it will have to be a place where we can stay for the 183 days required without too much hassle.

We've been looking at Thailand, but have heard that it's very hard to do visa runs etc., so what other can you recommend? Indonesia looked like a good option, but the income rate is a flat 20% and very high for the region.

Anyone wants to learn to sail in the Mediterranean? (Sep or Oct)


by @viktor | 4mo 3 months ago | 1 comment

I'm thinking about taking a sailing (yachting) course in the Mediterranean Sea this coming September or October. Thus far from my research, it seems that most courses are held in locations with not many digital nomads. My thinking is that it would be more fun to go to a place with like-minded people. Therefore, I'm wondering if anyone else is interested in taking a sailing course in the Mediterranean this fall? If not, do you know a location that offers good sailing courses, where there is also many digital nomads / nomad infrastructure?

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!

How to stay in Australia for longer than 3 months


in Australia by @rose_davis | 1yr 1 year ago | 2 comments

Hey there!

Iโ€™m planning on spending 3 months in Australia next year on a tourist visa. Iโ€™ve already gotten my working holiday visa (in 2017), but unfortunately didnโ€™t get to take advantage of the full year (only stayed 3 months).

My boyfriend will be able to get his working holiday visa before we go, so Iโ€™m wondering if anyone knows of a way that I might be able to extend my stay (6 months would be ideal, if longer I wouldnโ€™t complain).

Iโ€™d like to do this legally of course, so Iโ€™m wondering about a student visa. Anyone have experience getting this to extend their stay?

And other workarounds that might be worth exploring?

Might also be worth noting โ€“ Iโ€™ll be working while Iโ€™m there (for a US-based company) and I am American.

Appreciate the help!

Rose

How do I ensure that getting refused entry to the UK won't keep me from getting an Australian 462 (work and holiday) visa?


in Australia by @allisonkirschbaum | 1yr 1 year ago | 0 comments

On New Yearโ€™s Day this year, I was refused entry to the UK due to not having proof of funds, an outward-bound plane ticket (I was road-tripping out with a friend via car) and not being able to prove that I had indeed canceled the lease on the apartment I had leased during a prior recent trip.

I havenโ€™t had any entry issues to any of the several countries Iโ€™ve visited after, but now Iโ€™m applying for a 462 visa (work and holiday) visa in Australia, and since Australia and the UK share an immigration info system, I want to make sure getting refused entry wonโ€™t keep me from getting a visa. None of the issues that cropped up in the UK (the proof of funds, the plane ticket, and the apartment) will be an issue in Australia, as Iโ€™ve never traveled there before, donโ€™t know anyone and will have proof of more than sufficient funds for the trip and an outbound plane ticket.

Anybody have any suggestions on how to make the approval process go as smoothly as possible?

Many thanks in advance! :smiley:

Suggestions for home base for 10 months in Mexico or Panama next year?


in Mexico by @we_are_escaping | 2yr 1 year ago | 14 comments

Weโ€™re researching places to use as a home base next year, and are leaning towards Mexico or Panama for 10 months (with 1 week โ€œvacationsโ€ to explore surrounding countries)

But, I want to settle some place where the infrastructure is good enough for fast, reliable internet - fast enough to run live webinars without worrying that Iโ€™ll be S.O.L due to internet issues when itโ€™s time to go live.

And ideally, Iโ€™d like to be on the coastโ€ฆ I like to have ocean/beach access without the need for a drive.

And not in a malaria zone (just saying, since Panama in particular has many areas that Iโ€™d rule out simply due to the need for malaria prevention meds)โ€ฆ itโ€™s one thing to take that stuff for a few weeks long trip, but I donโ€™t want to take it for months on end.

Thoughts?

  • Internet reliability (power cuts and speed)
  • 4G connection as backup
  • specific areas to live

In anyone can offer any info, suggestions on specific areas or recommended accommodation that would be great. I visited around 8 years ago so I am assuming the place has changed quite a bit since then.
