Coworking in Mexico: An Introduction
For a large and growing number of freelancers and travelling professionals, the many shared workspace sites that have sprung up in locations across the globe offer a place to work in an office environment while away on vacation or a business trip. Every year, millions of North Americans travel south to Mexico to enjoy its world-class beaches and vibrant culture. Its capital, Mexico City, is also home to a thriving coworking scene with numerous shared workspaces and cafes catering to remote workers. In today’s blog, we’ll be taking a look at what Mexico has to offer for those looking to work remotely while in the country for business, pleasure, or both.
Bienvenidos a México
The United States’ neighbor to the south, Mexico is a country of stunning contrasts and a place where colonial Spanish influences mix with those of indigenous cultures. Travelling through Mexico, one can find sun-kissed beaches, verdant tropical forests, scorching deserts, and snow-capped mountains. For those looking to take in the sights and sounds of Mexico’s political, cultural, and economic capital, however, a trip to Mexico is not complete without spending some time in Mexico City.
