Cancun is one of the top international destinations for digital nomads, who chose the popular resort location for its excellent accommodation, cheap prices, and dynamic lifestyle. Hotels in the area are increasingly aware of the growing demand for this segment of the travel market and have begun promoting new work packages to attract more freelancers and remote workers.
Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean are known to attract all kinds of visitors: from millions of tourists who travel there to catch a break from it all to celebrities looking to find peace of mind. But increasingly, the popularity of the crown jewel of the Mexican Caribbean is soaring among a new type of traveler: digital nomads.
These mobile, international, and online-based employees work from home, meaning they can essentially travel whilst getting work done. That’s why many have their eyes set on Cancun, as the resort destination abounds with affordable accommodation and plenty of Caribbean hospitality.
Although digital nomads are free to work from practically wherever, they still need a few basics: safety, a stable internet connection, and a place to sleep, among other things. Hotels and resorts in Cancun are slowly but steadily beginning to offer packages tailored to the needs of digital nomads.
According to Marco Antonio Erosa, head of the National Chamber for Telecommunications and Information Technologies, there is a growing demand in the post-pandemic world for online-based freelancers and digital nomads. The body is working closely with a number of hotels to improve the availability of facilities and amenities that attract remote workers.
