Why Choose Mexico?

Mexico is a go-to destination for digital nomads – and for good reason. With its gorgeous beaches, lively cities, and warm climate, it really offers the perfect blend of relaxation and inspiration. Not to mention, the cost of living is relatively low, which means you can enjoy a comfortable lifestyle on most budgets.

Of course, internet connectivity is crucial for digital nomads. Thankfully, Mexico boasts a rapidly improving infrastructure with reliable and fast WiFi available in most urban and popular tourist areas. This makes it super easy to work from a beachfront cafe or a trendy coworking space.

My favorite thing about Mexico, however, is the culture. The country has a rich history, delicious cuisine, and super-friendly locals, which makes it incredibly appealing for digital nomads. There’s always a new dish to try, a historic site to explore, or a beach to discover.

Regarding age – there isn’t really a strict limit, but you should be of legal working age, typically 18 or older. This visa is meant for working professionals who can prove a steady remote income.
