With almost up to 50% of employees working remotely on a full schedule in certain spheres since the pandemic, more and more individuals have begun seeing the opportunity: why stay cooped up in your home when you can chill someplace better?
Remote working means that you can work from anywhere, as long as you have a good Internet connection, so why not do it from a beach, or near a mountain lake? If you plan on taking your remote work a notch higher, here are some places that you can try out.
Mexico, Playa Del Carmen
If you want to work in a place that is as affordable as it is relaxing, then you should give the Playa del Carmen area a chance. It’s close to the major points of the city, but also remote enough to have some tranquility. Plus, there are many co-working spaces, the Internet on the beach is reliable, and there are many cafes around where you can do your job. Plus, let’s face it – there’s no better way to work than with your toes in the sand.
Italy, Lake Como
How do you feel about working near a lake, with the mountains looming right over it? Come lunch break, you can take a swim in the lake and then come back fully energized.
Lake Como is a great place for you to work remotely, as there are many places with a fast Internet connection that you can rent. Plus, many of those houses and apartments offer a stunning view of the lake, which can significantly clear your head and make you ready for work.
Canary Island, Las Palmas
When it comes to remote work, Spain may not be the first country that crosses your mind – but you might want to give the Canary Island a try. The year-round tropical weather makes it perfect for remote working, especially when you set yourself on one of the stunning beaches.
The nightlife is also thriving, so when you are done with your work, there are plenty of ways to keep yourself entertained. It is a hotspot for digital nomads all over the world.
Bermuda, St. George
If you want some luxury during your remote working spree, try St. George’s in Bermuda. Even when you are on the beach, you can rely on a strong Internet connection. There are also plenty of cafes where you can go, as well as several co-working spaces. The cost of living there may be slightly higher compared to other remote work spots, but when you consider the luxury and the relaxing vibe, it is completely worth it.
If you want to work in a more exotic place but do not have a visa, nor do you want to bother with one, then you can give Aruba a try, specifically the Noord area. You can stay up to 30 days there without a visa, after which you can get one for the next 180 days. No matter if you are on the beach or at your accommodation, you can also enjoy a fast Internet connection.
Lagos, Portugal is very popular among remote workers due to its picturesque scenery featuring stunning beaches and breathtaking cliffs. As a remote worker, you can stay 90 days there without a visa, which is more than enough for a change in scenery. The place also gets an average of 12 hours of sunshine, which is more than enough for you to enjoy your day after work.
The bottom line
Remote working has opened up travel possibilities for many people. You just need to find a place with a good Internet connection, and every working day can feel like a vacation.
