Meet Cancun

Cancun is a tropical oasis that will constantly have you second-guessing whether you are always on vacation.

If you always wanted to live in a vacation spot then Cancun may be the perfect destination for you. It has a little bit of everything, making it ideal for a long stay. Some days you may want some adventure snorkeling or hiking. Other days may call for relaxation at spas or strolling the shops. Those days you need to work, you will no doubt find a good cup of coffee. To many, Cancun is a fun inexpensive option for their spring break, but it has so much to offer year-round. Discover new fish in their Maya Reef and then try some of the freshest seafood for lunch. Spend your day walking their coral sand beaches and then hydrate with a refreshing cocktail. Dance the night away and then try something completely new in the morning!

Where to live in Cancun

In Cancun, there is a stretch of land surrounded by water, identified as the hotel zone. This can be ideal if you are visiting without a job and would like to do something in the hospitality industry. However, if that is not you, this may be a better place to visit and explore some other areas that give you more of a locals experience. For example, the downtown area and Puerto Juarez. Regardless of where you stay, one thing is for sure, you will never be bored!

Work in Cancun

Depending upon the type of work you do Cancun can be a great location (or a distraction) due to how many fun things there are to do in the area! Cancun is not going to be like many major cities with a financial district or large startup culture, but that is part of the fun. You will meet people from all over the world and get to explore some beautiful and exciting spots. If you are looking for work in Cancun, your best bet may be to lean towards the tourism industry, due to how strong it is in the area. Or, if you’re a remote worker or digital nomad, just bring your work to the beach.

How good is Cancun for Digital Nomads or Remote Work

Remote work is changing how the global workspace operates. In a trend that is showing no signs of slowing down, remote work is rapidly on the increase all around the world—especially in a place like Cancun. And about 25% of remote workers describe themselves as digital nomads—those who like to travel or stay in cities around the world while they work. So, how good is Cancun for both of these growing movements?

Food and Drink in Cancun

If you are traveling to Cancun, it is not uncommon to expect some traditional Mexican dishes like enchiladas, salsas, or tostadas. Sure, you will find those dishes, especially in the more tourist areas. But you will also find some more traditional and adventurous options that you may not get at your local Mexican joint back home. For example, in Cancun, you can try ceviche. A salsa-like mix that consists of ingredients like red onion, shrimp, tomato, and cilantro. Mole is also a popular sauce with a chocolate base. This is usually poured over chicken or enchiladas and has more of a savory than sweet flavor due to the seasonings and other ingredients that make it so popular. Every dish goes great with a Mexican beer in your michelada or chelada. Then when you want something sweet at the end of your meal, try the churros. Their sweet flavor is the perfect finisher to any dish.
