Tulum is a hotspot for digital nomads and remote workers, so looking for a place to focus and work is very important – because of this, there are a lot of coworking spots in Tulum to choose from. You can of course work from your hotel or Airbnb but sometimes it lacks the proper amenities or facilities – or you just prefer working in a friendly atmosphere with other like-minded people.
The other thing is of course wifi. Fast & reliable wifi is probably the number 1 thing a digital nomad is looking for, which can be hard to find in remote beach towns such as Tulum. Rest assured after spending years working in Tulum, we have put together this helpful guide for the best coworking spots in Tulum.
Tulum Coworking Tips
Test download speed
While this is an obvious first thing to do while checking out a new coworking space you may call your home for the next little while – a lot of people don’t do this. Before paying for a full month up front at a place, try a test ride at the place for one day or a few hours. Some places will even give you a free trial.
We recommend testing the speed on your phone or laptop with speedtest.net. Make sure the download speed is at least over 30mbps and the upload speed should be at least 10mbps, this is important if you’re doing video conferencing or zoom calls.
For example, the internet may seem fast and reliable at first glance, but that may be because there’s no one there, so the router can handle the bandwidth. Stick around to see how it performs when the place is at full capacity. There may also be random outages throughout the day that you may not notice when just checking out the place for a couple of hours.
