Freelance developer in Mexico

I live in a small town in the south of Mexico called San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas. Internet connection is not that good, but better than in Puerto Escondido. It’s common to meet nomads with laptops and iPhones working from the most beautiful places around.

I don’t like to go to coworking environment, I feel the goal of this places is to flirt and drink lactose free, gluten free, sugar free, decaf machiato and to take selfies for Instagram. I don’t mind people doing that, but it’s not my thing.

Modern times allow us to work from almost anywhere, which is good. And Mexico being a place with almost no restrictions because of the virus, then why not travel around.

I’ve meet interesting people on the road, some of them became customers and friends. It’s such a nice feeling moving around with light luggage, you realize you really don’t need that much in order to feel good and being able to work and survive.

Living in a comfortable place close to downtown with an active job and my guitar by my side makes life a nice experience.
