As digital nomads, we all know how hard it may be to choose the next destination. And it is understandable because so many factors need to be taken into account: cost of living in a chosen city, weather conditions, the presence of the stable Internet and much more.
The good news is that the places that combine all these important factors exist – these are Digital Nomad villages.
What Is a Digital Nomad Village?
A digital nomad village is an organized community for remote employees and entrepreneurs where they have everything they need for a comfortable life and efficient work: coworking spaces and co-living spaces, robust Wi-Fi and, most importantly, a community of like-minded people around.
Digital Nomad Villages Around The World
There are several villages that you can choose from – all of them are located in Europe. The current biggest village in Madeira, Portugal was opened for digital nomads in 2020 and in 2 years’ time had over 11,000 applicants. The founder of Madeira’s village is planning to establish more similar ones and he has already announced about the establishment of the first digital nomad village in Brazil!
