Freelance developer in Mexico

I live in a small town in the south of Mexico called San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas. Internet connection is not that good, but good enough to work as a programmer.

I prefer to work from home, I don’t attracted to the coworking environment. Maybe the goal of this places is to flirt while drinking lactose free, gluten free, sugar free, decaf machiato and to take selfies for Instagram. I don’t mind people doing that, but it’s not my thing.

Modern times allow us to work from almost anywhere, which is good. And Mexico being a place with almost no restrictions because of the virus, then why not travel around.

I’ve meet interesting people on the road, some of them became customers and friends. It’s such a nice feeling moving around with light luggage, you realize you really don’t need that much in order to feel good and being able to work and survive.

Living in a comfortable place close to downtown with an active job and my guitar by my side makes life a nice experience. For now I’ve been working as a freelance developer in Mexico, but planing to start searching for 100% remote jobs abroad.
