If you’ve been to Puerto Escondido, Mazunte, Zipolite, etc, please share your experience with the internet there.
What speeds did you get up/down? Where?
How solid and consistent was the connection?
How common are blackouts and loss of power?
Any other tips, favorite places to work, etc?
Which towns have decent internet?
Thanks so much!
I am planning to travel to Mexico City next weekend and stay for 7-10 days there. I wonder if cafes, stores and other places like these work? And if cafes work, do they work as usual or only for take away&delivery? Will be very thankful if someone can help here.
Hi, i live in mexico city and it is very normal. Some stores/restaurants close earlier, some limit the amount of people, but for what i can see, most of the places keep working as usual.
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? I’m open to other locations as well (Puerto Vallerta, Oaxaca, and everything in between these two locations.
I'm also interested. I'll be in PV Nov-Dec this year and Playa del Carmen in Dec - Feb 2021.
This post is quite old but I would be interested as well
Going in Cancun/Playa del Carmen for 3 months starting January 5th !
I could be into this. I’ll be there March 24th. I’m looking for someone to split costs with.
Know Mexico City?
We are here for 4 more nights. We want to get a good feel for how it would be to live here as nomads.
What neighborhoods should we check out? What cafés should we peep? What peeps should we meet?
Haha, thanks so much!
Just in case anyone stumbles across this later, I totally agree with Parque Espana as a fun place.
You can’t really go wrong staying anywhere along Tamaulipas. You can walk to a different restaurant for every meal for weeks on end. A lot of the places to stay here reflect that popularity which is good and bad. If you’re willing to pay above the market rate of surrounding areas you can almost always find a very nice place on Airbnb that’s available. If you have a lower budget then you’ll want to book pretty far in advance.
Roma Norte also has a great scene it’s worth checking out.
As far as good goes, do not pass up trying the tacos Por Siempre Vegana. Whether you’re vegan or not, these are some of the best tacos in Mexico City which means they’re among the best in the world!
If you’re feeling really adventurous, befriend a local and ask them to tell you about the Tepito neighborhood.
I went to CDMX for 1 month and ended up staying 2 and still didn’t feel like I scratched the surface. One of my favorite cities!

I’m not sure about how accurate nomadslist really is. When I search for locations in the USA with good hiking what comes up first? Atlanta. Second is NYC. Huh? I think Tucson is a great city for the nomad who likes a bit of quiet. It’s small enough to be cozy but big enough that you can find everything you need. Want to party non stop and socialize with other nomads? Probably not your number one choice. Want good weather most of the year and lower cost of living?

Where cowboys and the wild west truly started, San Antonio is a beautiful and historic city with many layers to explore within and outside the city. It's a hotter town than Austin, not just in temperature, but also in terms of friendliness, activities, family values, and cultural richness (with authentic tacos of all types, Tex-Mex, Cali style, and from Mexico City), it has one of the best culinary and cocktail scenes in the country.

It's great if you're woke, young & artsy. If you're just a regular guy in your 30's with no connections, you'll have a miserable time. Especially during the pandemic.

there is a lot of harassment of foreigners by pan handlers and scammers. You can't sit in a cafe without numerous people persistently trying to sell you something or outright begging. They come in waves, the time it takes to drink a single espresso you'll have to fend off a minimum of 3 different people trying to sell the same thing.⭐️ Score💵 Cost 📡 Internet 😀 Fun 👮 Safety ✈️12h🌇 Also went here1 people×
Been living here in Buenos Aires for almost three years. Right now, it's (relatively) cheap. I mean, it isn't for the people who currently lives here but it's if you're a foreign, as the inflation keeps going on the peso isn't that worthy now. But, as I'm saying, if you come with dollars is going to make a huge difference. (3 years ago: 20 pesos= 1 USD.

I was here for a month. Rio is a beautiful and vibrant city. There's a lot of icons to see. There's great food and the beach is right there. In my, experience the pandemic hasn't impacted the city much. Bars and clubs are still open. I usually go out to Leblon, Ipanema, Lapa, and Barra da Tijuca. However, it can definitely be a dangerous city if you're being careless. About 10% of the people I've met had an incident there.

My girlfriend and I lived in Belgrade for over a month and absolutely loved it! It has a bit of a raw feeling and the indoor smoking is something that's hard to get used to, but in general we felt welcomed with open arms with pretty much everyone we've been in contact with. We were particularly fond of the Dorcol region to stay, eat and live. The castle area is great for a walk on a sunny day.

Sofia is one of the most amazing cities ever, it has old buildings because of the low economic status of the country, but the main cause is from the low number of tourists visiting this lovely country. The food is amazing and cheap, the population is very fun, but they are a little bit homophobics and racists (not everyone, but there are a lot of people who really are).

Athens is a great city; much to do! It offers a balance of daily life and nightlife. Rents are extremely reasonable.

Bali is amazing, but Canggu isn't really that great -- actually there are SO MANY better places, like Uluwatu, Gili Islands or even Ubud that I can't understand the hype. As almost everyone said below, beaches are crappy, roads are terrible, sidewalks are non-existent and having a motorbike is a must. On the other side, food is great and cafes are pretty reasonable with all those incredible bowls.

First time I was in KL was in 2015 as a backpacking student. I stayed for 2 weeks at an airbnb in Bangsar South and I loved it. Met up with Uni friends, made new friends and I really like the relaxed atmosphere, despite being in a huge city. Fast forward, 3 years later, I went by myself to KL for a 3 days stay on a visa run from Chiang Mai. I stayed in a hotel near Bukit Bintang. I actually really didn't like it - I think because I was by myself, in a fairly wild part of the city and got so us⭐️ Score💵 Cost 📡 Internet 😀 Fun 👮 Safety ✈️20h🌇 Also went here1 people×
