Check out why people are moving to paradise and remote working from Nicaragua.
If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught the world a long list of lessons, one of the best maybe that remote working has proven not only to be sustainable but that if you can remote work from home, you can work remotely from anywhere. So, if you’re going to work remotely, why not consider remote working from Nicaragua, a tropical paradise with an amenity-rich environment and wonderful people.
With many real estate opportunities, affordable living, and everything you need to live and work remotely, here is what to expect when making the transition.
Benefits of Living and Working in Nicaragua
Due to the current “lockdown” measures, many have realized that all of their work can be done remotely. It doesn’t necessarily need to be in a tiny apartment in an empty city or a family home with high expenses and mortgage payments.
Reliable and Fast Internet
A big reason why many are relocating to Nicaragua is because of the reliable high-speed internet. Depending on where you are located, there is the option of installing fiber-optic internet that is just as powerful as what you are used to in North America. Fiber via satellite is another popular option.
There is LTE service for your phone, with a plan that costs roughly $3 USD per week for 600 MB of internet, 25 calling minutes, and 25 text messages, with free use of Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Twitter.
There are several reliable phone and home internet plans available depending on your individual needs.
An “Office” with a View
North America and Europe’s winters are long and cold – a recipe for feeling tired and stressed. But not here! Instead, you will find yourself remote working from Nicaragua while feeling calm and relaxed overlooking the ocean while you work.
Need a quick work break? Head to the beach and dip your toes in the warm ocean water. Or, head to the nearest trail for a hike overseeing the most spectacular views. Then, return to your desk and finish off your workday.
With the beautiful weather, lush biodiversity, and breathtaking scenery, your productivity, and overall health will improve. With the warm sun and cool breeze all year round, how could it not!
Overall, if you are looking to work in a quiet and “off the beaten track” atmosphere with minimal distractions, Nicaragua is the place to be.
Purchasing Property and Make Extra Income
Who says you can’t make your cake and eat it too?
Here in the Tola and San Juan del Sur area, you have a plethora of amenities while being able to work remotely from your new home.
Don’t plan on living in Nicaragua all year round? Property and rental management companies in Nicaragua are super affordable. Beyond looking after your property, they take care of advertising and renting out your home, which can create stress-free additional income. This, in turn, generates a monthly rental revenue stream and adds value to your property.
If you aren’t ready to buy yet, renting is an excellent option. For the price of a small apartment in any major city, you can rent a beautiful oceanview home with a pool that would make any of your colleagues jealous!
Same Time Zone as The Continental United States & Canada
Remote working from Nicaragua places you in the same time zone as Continental USA and Canada. This is a huge advantage to save time daily when you need to communicate with clients, colleagues, friends, and family.
If your client is working from 9 AM – 5 PM, rest assured that you will be working within their regular working hours, allowing you to have a normal work and sleep schedule as well.
A Community of Remote Workers
You may find that yours is not the only laptop in the cafe or co-working space on any given day.
The number of remote workers in Nicaragua is increasing. Networking opportunities and a collaborative environment exist in many communities, especially those with many ex-pats, such as in San Juan del Sur & Tola.
This means that even those of us who crave face-to-face interactions will find that remote working makes sense here.
