Digital Nomads Trialling For 1 Month For a More Permanent Move

Hey all,

My partner and I are originally from Sydney Australia, and we both run online companies (lucky us).

We have spent the last 7 months living in Ubud-Bali which we have enjoyed very much, but have decided that it's a time for us to change locations and keep moving around the world.

I've wanted to learn Spanish for quite a while, and I love the ocean and warm weather, so we were looking around the Caribbean. Playa Del Carmen was mentioned to us by some friends, so I've been doing my research and it seems to be our next destination.

We plan to go in November to escape the beginning of Dengue virus season here in Ubud.

I definitely have lots of questions as we plan ahead of time such as good areas to live, how personal transportation there works (we just hire a scooter here for $50 USD a month).

Exciting times ahead.

Welcome and ask away! (Find the "advanced search" button, too, as that will steer you to a lot of answers first.)

Know that we do still have Dengue here, though (since I haven't had it in 12 years of living here!), it's not too bad.

As for transportation, lots of people own scooters, bicycles, cars, or just walk, bus (colectivo), or taxi. If you live in town, much of what you need will be in walking distance.

Thanks Suzie,

I've been doing a bit of a read around, and will do some more reading before I start asking questions, so I have some clue about the lay of the land.

We've found some good accommodation in Playacar, but need to decide if the location is going to work for me.

It's hard going to a new place, to work out what 'area' to stay in.

Barry and Phyliss have a nice place for rent in Playacar
