Digital Nomad Guide to Living in Cozumel


Cozumel, Mexico, is one of those places that truly lives at “island speed.” What I loved most about living in Cozumel as a digital nomad was the slow pace of life, the gorgeous scenery, and the fantastic culture.

Being a digital nomad in Cozumel is great because your office can be anywhere – a rooftop bar, a cute cafe, a quiet outdoor space – just pick one!

About Living in Cozumel


Cozumel is a stunning island nestled in the Caribbean Sea, just off the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, right outside Playa del Carmen and Cancun.

Plus, the cost of living is relatively low compared to other beach destinations – especially for an island.

The island’s welcoming locals and friendly expat community also make it easy to meet new friends and network.
