Spain – A Great Place to Work Remotely

Why Digital Nomads Live in Spain

Spain is known for its existing digital nomad communities as they have historically promoted remote work, even prior to the global pandemic. The culture, food, and weather are truly unmatched and the cost of living is relatively low. The majority of cities in Spain offer an incredible work-life balance, as well. There are tons of things to do in the evenings and weekends, but also a variety of workplaces and co-working spaces to take advantage of during the day. In January 2022, Spain announced the release of their very own digital nomad visa, which will allow remote workers to live and work in the country for 12 months. They are even testing out the option of dual visa renewal, meaning you can stay for up to 3 years at a time. This is quite significant considering non-EU visitors are currently limited to a stay of 90 days within 180 days of the year.

When to Visit

It has been determined by many travel connoisseurs that the best time to visit Spain is in the Spring or Fall. Between March and May and September and November are the most favorable conditions for many. The weather is warm but not too warm, crowds are minimal, and tons to do! Plus, because it is not peak tourist season, prices are often considerably lower than if you were to visit during the summer months. Tons of festivals occur during the springtime, and beaches remain an option for when you’ve got some time to explore. If you’re planning to stay more long-term, you still can’t go wrong year-round. There’s always amazing food, and the culture is super intriguing if you’re down to learn about some history.

Best City to Stay

With the increasingly high number of digital nomads travelling to Spain within the past years, Valencia has been the highest chosen city to live in. Valencia is the third-largest city in Spain, located on the eastern coast of the country. It’s about a 3 and a half-hour drive from Barcelona, so you could easily plan a quick weekend getaway if you’re wanting to further explore Spain. Valencia, in particular, has become the city of choice for nomads due to its fast, free wifi locations, co-working spaces, and opportunity for a strong social life. Specifically, Valencia has become a pilot city for many co-working locations, with new spots opening up almost monthly. Valencia also excels in the work-life balance aspect of the nomadic lifestyle. The city itself is not too big, nor too small, meaning there will always be something to do within close proximity to you. Valencia is truly made for digital nomads, whether intentional or not, and it comes as no surprise why so many have chosen this city over others!
