The Allure of Puerto Escondido for Digital Nomads

We personally fell head over heels for Puerto Escondido, or as the locals lovingly call it—Puerto. It didn’t take long for us to see why so many people, especially digital nomads, are drawn to this paradise. 🌴

First off, let’s talk surf. 🏄‍♀️ Puerto is a legendary surfing destination with massive waves that make Playa Zicatela a surfer’s dream. Though a word of caution—local surfers can be a little territorial, so maybe don’t drop in on their waves uninvited. 😅

But Puerto is more than just a surf town. It’s a haven for remote workers, thanks to the rise of Escondido coworking spaces with perks like fiber optic and Starlink internet. Imagine sending off work emails with an ocean view in the backdrop. It doesn’t get better than this!

The food? Oh boy, it’s a culinary jackpot! 🌮 We’re talking some of the best flavors you’ll ever experience in Mexico. And the people? Super open-minded and welcoming—unless you’re cutting in on their surf, of course.

It used to be a best-kept secret, but the cat’s out of the bag. 🐱 Tourists and digital nomads alike are now flocking to Puerto Escondido to experience all the awesomeness it has to offer. From fast internet and meeting rooms for work, to the beaches of Punta and Zicatela for play, Puerto Escondido has the best of both worlds.

Ready to make your next remote work base Puerto Escondido? Let’s dive deeper to make sure you make the most of your time in this Mexican paradise. 🌊

Coworking Spaces & Nomad Friendly Cafés

Selina: The Big Player

For those who love the familiar, Selina is your go-to spot. It’s part of a well-known hospitality chain that specializes in coworking space solutions. Though we didn’t work from Selina in Puerto, it has a reputation for offering top-notch internet, comfy spaces, and private rooms. The catch? The high standards come with equally high prices. 😅 If you’re looking for dedicated coworking with all the amenities like meeting rooms and fast internet, Selina has got you covered.

Casa Puerto Bonito: A Hidden Gem

But hey, Selina isn’t the only game in town. We stumbled upon Casa Puerto Bonito, an apartment complex whose owner is super keen on attracting digital nomads like you and me. 🤓 He invested in a strong internet connection and even converted the top floor into a workspace. Imagine working while soaking in those gorgeous ocean views. So if Selina seems a bit too mainstream for you, give Casa Puerto Bonito a look!

Nomad-Friendly Cafés in La Punta

Don’t underestimate the charm of working from a café, especially when you’re in La Punta. Here are some of our favorites:

  • Amarisa Pasteles Pan Y Café: This café offers much more than your daily caffeine fix. From great breakfast options to freshly baked bread, Amarisa is a delight. The internet is mostly stable, and the staff are super friendly. Just make sure you get there early or late afternoon, as it gets packed by mid-day.
  • Café Nduva Punta: Situated on the main street of La Punta, this café is a stone’s throw away from the shoreline. The vibe is great and it’s a magnet for friendly folks. The internet? Reasonable, though you might experience a hiccup or two. Just keep that in mind if you’re on an important Zoom call!
  • Café Ole: This café is a hot spot that fills up fast, so have a plan B ready. But if you do snag a spot, you’re in for a treat. Their breakfast is drool-worthy! 🤤

Where to Eat: Top Food Spots

Fish Shack La Punta: The Hidden Gem

Tucked away in a quiet alley of La Punta, you’ll find Fish Shack, a place you’ll kick yourself for missing. Their Fish Burger? A total game-changer. We went back for seconds and thirds because it was that good! This dish is literally the best we tried in Puerto Escondido. Perfect for a quick bite when you need to head back to your coworking space and meet those deadlines. With its fast internet and ocean views, working from Puerto has never felt so good!

El Árbol: The Social Hotspot

Ready to unwind after a long day of remote work? Make a beeline for El Árbol. Not only is this place a foodie’s paradise, but it’s also an entertainment hub. Live music, an awesome vibe, and cheap drinks—what more could you ask for? Most chances, you’ll hear about it as it’s often the main event in La Punta. It’s also a great location to network with other digital nomads and remote workers. You might even make some friends to join you at an Escondido coworking space the next day! 🎶

Chicama Peruvian Food: The Gourmet Experience

For a touch of class, head to Chicama Peruvian Food. Don’t be surprised if you find a queue at the entrance; this place is all the rage. Despite its popularity, it’s not as pricey as you’d think. The food is simply out of this world. Our personal favorite? The special Tuna fish with black crumbs. Trust us; you won’t find anything like it elsewhere.

This high-end spot can be a lovely escape from your dedicated coworking space, offering a chance to dress up a bit and enjoy a gourmet experience. Plus, who knows? With its reputation, you might end up dining next to fellow digital nomads who can share some tips on navigating Puerto Escondido coworking spaces or the best spots for ocean views. 🍣

What to Do When You’re Not Working

Hit the Waves at Playa Zicatela

Did you know Puerto Escondido is a surfer’s paradise? Yep, Playa Zicatela is where you can ride some of the gnarliest waves or even learn how to surf if you’re new to the game. It’s a nice break from staring at your laptop screen in those air-conditioned coworking spaces. Plus, surfing is a great way to meet other digital nomads and locals!

Explore Oaxaca’s Natural Beauty

Tips for Digital Nomads in Puerto Escondido

Know the Local Customs

Remember, you’re not just a tourist—you’re a temporary local. So, be respectful of the local customs. A simple “hola” and “gracias” can go a long way. Plus, locals can often provide the best recommendations, maybe even pointing you towards a hidden gem of a coworking space. 😉

Safety First

Puerto Escondido is generally a safe haven for digital nomads, but like anywhere, it’s always good to be cautious. Stick to well-lit areas at night, especially if you’re walking back from a coworking space or a late-night cafe. Also, keep an eye on your gadgets; fast internet won’t help if you don’t have a device to connect to!

Get the Best Internet

Fast internet is the lifeline of a digital nomad. While coworking spaces like Casa Losodeli offer fiber optic and Starlink internet, it’s always a good idea to have a backup, like a local SIM card with data. Whether you’re in a dedicated coworking space, cafe, or your ocean-view apartment, always be prepared.

Q&A

Q: How easy is it to find a coworking space in Puerto Escondido?

A: To be honest, your options are a bit limited here. Selina is currently the primary dedicated coworking space in town. There’s also Casa Puerto Bonito, an apartment complex that offers a makeshift workspace. But hey, limited doesn’t mean nonexistent! 🌟

Q: What about the internet speed?

A: Great question! While some coworking spaces and cafes do offer internet, it’s not always stable. That’s why it’s a good idea to have a backup like a local SIM card with a good data package. So, even if the cafe’s internet lets you down, your SIM card won’t! 📶

Q: Can I get by with English?

A: You can manage with English, especially in coworking spaces and nomad-friendly cafes. However, learning a few phrases in Spanish will definitely earn you brownie points with the locals. 🗨️

Q: Is it expensive to live in Puerto Escondido?

A: Costs can vary, but with fewer coworking options, you might find yourself working from cafes or splurging on a more premium space like Selina. But food and other amenities are relatively affordable, so you can still live on a budget if you plan right. 💰
