The best Central American destinations for surf and remote work

Being able to work remotely is already a privilege. Only 14% of the US workforce works remotely full time (down from over 30% two years ago), so you can consider yourself lucky if you are one of them.

Here at The Wayward Road, we have been working remotely since 2016, and a few years ago, we took up surfing as one of our main addictions hobbies. However, we quickly realized that combining our work life with our surfing wasn’t as easy as we initially thought.

Best Cafes in Medellin to Work From

Medellin has become one of the top digital nomad destinations in recent years. It’s no surprise that more and more international remote workers, freelancers, and startup founders are choosing the capital of the Antioquia Department as their home base.

There are several reasons that make Medellin almost perfect for remote work:

  • Low cost of living compared to the US/Europe
  • Amazing weather all year round
  • Lots of food and entertainment options
  • Good public transportation
  • Great coffee
  • Same working hours as US Eastern Time (for those that work with US companies)

Peru: Cusco, Machu Picchu, Arequipa and Mancora
