About the Guide
Mexico City is an easy place to fall in love with and I've come to think it's one of the best cities in the world, especially for remote workers. But many of the resources out there are meant for tourists, or only go surface-deep.
That's why I wrote this guide!
I’ve packed it with all the basics - where to stay, where to work - plus recommendations for everything from restaurants and bars to gyms and laundromats. Plus, all the pro tips it took me years to learn!
(Did you know you're supposed to tip the person bagging your groceries? 👀)
My goal is to help you fall a little bit in love with Mexico City too—while also helping you avoid some of the logistics that take up a lot of your time when you land in a new place.

I'm a recovering digital nomad who spent five years traveling the world before I fell in love with Mexico City and moved here almost four years ago. Exploring the city, learning its history, and helping other people discover it is a hobby and a passion.
I've made this guide pay-what-you-want to keep it accessible, but ask that you pay full price if you can. I've spent +100 hours putting this together and your contributions help me keep it updated. :)
