Why These 3 Latin American Cities Are Trending With Digital Nomads Right Now

If you’re a digital nomad looking for the next place to explore, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better region than Latin America.

With vibrant cultures, remarkably low prices, jaw-dropping landscapes, and the type of food that most people only dream of, the places that make up this stunning region offer everything a modern-day professional could want and more.

Lately, though, three cities have emerged as Latin America’s trendiest digital nomad hotspots, and below, you’ll find out just why people can’t seem to get enough of them.

Mexico City

Though Mexico City has officially been dethroned by Cancun as the most visited destination in Mexico, the capital still holds that authentic city charm that catapulted it to international popularity in the first place.

What Mexico City lacks in beachy allure, it more than makes up for in culture, convenience, and endless networking opportunities.

And despite it not being a coastal destination, the city still boasts the type of mild, balmy weather most of us are pining after, especially now that we’ve grown tired of the bitter winter – the median yearly temperature is 15 °C (59 °F), and if that doesn’t scream “perfect” to you, I don’t know what does.

Just imagine how much your productivity would shoot up if you could take in the warm, Mexican sunshine every morning.

Another great way to improve your mental capacity would be to get inspired by the many, many cultural and historical attractions that give the city its unique, fascinating vibe.

The ancient ruins of Teotihuacan, the vibrant neighborhoods of Coyoacán, the murals of Diego Rivera, the city’s Historic Center, and Xochimilco are just a few of the must-see places to add to your bucket list.

More importantly, though, you’ll get to take in all that culture and beauty at a pretty reasonable price tag, especially if you choose your neighborhood right and avoid pricier areas like La Condesa.

Buenos Aires

While Buenos Aires has always been one of South America’s crown jewels, this year, it really has established itself as a top-tier bucket list destination for travelers from all over the world.

Digital nomads who can’t seem to choose between that city charm of European hotspots and the type of vibrant atmosphere and soul-warming food that can only be found in Latin America won’t have to compromise here – the Argentine capital promises the best of both worlds.

The birthplace of tango is home to more theaters, art galleries, and world-class eateries (which actually range from humble street carts to Michelin-starred restaurants) than you can count, nudging digital nomads to find a better work-life balance.

Don’t worry, you won’t have to leave your career on the back burner, either.

Buenos Aires is currently witnessing a surge in coworking spaces and innovative startups (mostly concentrated in Palermo Soho), so you won’t struggle to find professional or networking opportunities in the city at all.

What’s more, the exchange rate between the U.S. dollar and the Argentine Peso is currently more favorable than ever, so now might be the best time budgeting-wise to finally spend a couple of months (or even more) in Buenos Aires.

Medellin

Last but certainly not least on today’s roundup is Medellin, a place that’s repeatedly (1, 2) been hailed as one of the best digital nomad destinations in the world, and for good reason.

The Colombian gem boasts the type of perpetual spring-like climate, breathtaking natural sights, and welcoming local community that makes even the most stress-inducing work feel that much more bearable.

I highly recommend choosing one of the many coworking spaces in the area with open-air designs that make you feel like you’re working in the middle of a park without any of the noise or distractions – it’s perfect, really. 

The community-centric atmosphere that can be felt all throughout the city also makes it easier for those traveling alone to integrate into the local culture and make long-lasting connections, both professional and, more importantly, personal.

And with that, Medellin manages to find a solution to every issue that might arise during your digital nomad adventures, offering the perfect shelter for you to grow as a professional and individual.

I just joined this travel site and found the articles about Crete and Asia totally in my direction of travel interest.

Is there any way l could narrow down this overwhelming mass of emails re: worldwide places yhat l have received in just 2 days? I have been a world traveller most of my life, and so l'd prefer to get on a list of emails hiliting places ONLY in Europe and SE Asia.

If not, l will cancel my subscription immediately.

Hope you have a suggestion that would help me out?

Thank you, Andrea
