Work-life balance. That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? In this post, we talk about the providers and the information you need to thrive as a digital nomad in beautiful Costa Rica.
Working remotely has become the new trend these days, and with good reason. Digital Nomad
life in Costa Rica is suitable for just about anyone, on just about any budget! Working remotely in paradise sounds like a dream. Make that dream a reality and take yourself on a grown-up gap year to explore the endless abundance of surf, sand, wildlife and biodiversity that Costa Rica has to offer.
More and more, we see adults of all ages flocking to Costa Rica to live the Digital Nomad
dream. If you work online, or can perform most of your office duties from the computer, why
not do it from the beach, or a patio overlooking the ocean?
There are terrific internet, wifi and phone plan providers throughout Costa Rica that can ensure
you are well connected. So whether you teach online, provide graphic design, build websites, or write content for a living, you can be connected from your beachfront villa or jungle treehouse!
Tamarindo offers an incredible haven for digital nomads who want to experience all that Costa
Rica has to offer, and still feel right at home with North American comforts, reliable internet,
and bilingual tourism services. A short drive from Liberia airport makes it easy to get in and out
of town for work trips.
Kolbi, Claro and Movistar are the main phone providers in the area. Staying connected is not an issue here. A mifi unit can be used, and an unlimited internet phone plan on a SIM card can be purchased here for about $70 per month. So you will always be connected. Cable Tica is the most common cable and internet provider throughout Tamarindo, and any rental property can confirm the internet speed before commiting to your long or short term rental.
While expats can’t technically work in Costa Rica without residency, there are many businesses
who will pay in cash to have the expertise of a social media manager, Instagram guru, website
developer or graphic designer for their business. Reliable, knowledgable digital nomads with
expertise in the tourism industry are difficult to find in Costa Rica. If you have a special talent,
and are looking to take on online clients in order to make your “work in paradise” dream a
reality, come prepared to introduce yourself to local business owners and offer your services.
While the pay may be less then what is typically offered of similar services in Europe and North
America, living expenses are relative. If there is a will, there is a way! You can make any lifestyle
possible on a budget here in Costa Rica. After all, sunset beach strolls are 100% free!
