Old San Juan ranked among world’s ‘best cities for digital nomads’ – News is My Business

Old San Juan has been described as “a great place to live and work as a digital nomad thanks to its beautiful beaches, tropical climate, low cost of living, and great restaurants.”

EnjoyTravel.com published its listing of the world’s 25 best cities for digital nomads, ranking Old San Juan 19e where people go to work remotely.

“Digital nomads work remotely and can work from anywhere. So what are the best places in the world to do it? We scoured hundreds of listings and blog posts looking for the best locations for digital nomads. We considered factors such as cost of living, ease of obtaining visas and coworking spaces,” the travel service said.

The rankings considered also took into account the availability of rental properties, reliable public transport and Wi-Fi and the “overall social life of expats”.

Old San Juan has been described as “a great place to live and work as a digital nomad thanks to its beautiful beaches, tropical climate, low cost of living, and great restaurants.”

“Old San Juan is the place to go for a delicious blend of European architecture and Latin flavors. Digital nomads in Puerto Rico will find Old San Juan a haven, thanks to its abundance of quaint cafes and cafes with reliable internet,” the website states.

In choosing the island’s capital for the ranking, EnjoyTravel.com stated that “Puerto Rico’s proximity to [and visa-free access to] the United States makes it a great place for a North American digital nomad.

“Plus, the island has plenty of coworking and internet spaces, so you’ll never run out of options for a place to work. One of the most popular [and recommended] coworking spaces are Piloto 151,” he said.

Bali, Indonesia ranked the list, followed by Chiang Mai, Thailand, Madeira, Portugal, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and Lisbon, Portugal to complete the top five.

Puerto Rico beat Bangalore, India, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Tirana, Albania, Istanbul, Turkey, Seoul, South Korea and Penang, Malaysia.

As the global shift to remote work shows no signs of turning back, workers around the world are definitely abandoning the traditional office setup for “work from home” spaces — and for many that means moving, said the website.

“The trend is only expected to increase with data projections showing that 25% of all professional jobs in North America will be remote by the end of 2022,” he added.
