The Rise Of Digital Nomadism

On social media, we frequently see pictures of people happily working on their laptops in a tropical island or in a historic European city, accompanied with the world’s best views. “Digital nomadism”, which blends the concept of remote working with the dream of traveling the world, is a way of life and work on the rise. It has increasingly become more popular when some countries started issuing “remote work” or “freelancer” visa. Digital nomads mostly use shared offices or cafés in the city they are visiting. According to a research by InterNations, a global community of expatriates, the most suitable countries for digital nomadism are Portugal, Bali, Spain, Mexico, Colombia, and Ecuador.


Lisbon has fully embraced the culture of digital nomadism. This historic city offers many artistic platforms to expand the limits of your creativity. In addition to its art galleries, museums, and cultural events hosted in bars, Lisbon attracts all nomads -digital and analogue- with its nightlife, friendly locals, beaches, and architecture.


This beautiful Western Mediterranean port city is one of the most popular destinations with its museums, cuisine, nightlife, and of course, the mesmerizing architectural works of Gaudi. It’s one of the most preferred cities by digital nomads thanks to its clement weather, vast expat population, more affordable living cost compared to other European cities, and spectacular history and architecture.


Located on Mexico’s “Riviera Maya” coastline, Tulum is a city to dazzle all travellers with its turquoise ocean, white-sand beaches, eco hotels, spectacular nature, and ancient cities. Digital nomads lucky enough to settle down in Tulum enjoy this tropical paradise all year round.


Situated at the peak of Andes mountains, Quito is perfect for digital nomads who are passionate about outdoor activities and nature sports. The advantage of it being a small city is that it offers the chance to live a slow and relaxed life unlike big metropolitans. Quito is also conveniently located to explore the famous Latin America landmarks such as the Amazon Forests and the Galapagos Islands.


Frequented by hippies and surfers in the 1970s, this quiet beach town is the first choice for digital nomads. With its average temperature between 26-30 degrees Celsius and the ocean surrounding it, finding time for work may become a challenge, but there is no doubt that it will be fun.


The second biggest city in Colombia has recently undergone a comprehensive transformation. Attracting digital nomads with investments in technology and infrastructure, Medellín has received a series of awards for its sustainable urban development projects. Organizing regular social events for newcomer digital nomads, the city will surely continue its rise with its café culture, friendly and hospitable locals, magical nature, and rich cuisine.
