At the beginning of the 20th century, San Miguel de Allende was in danger of becoming a ghost town after an influenza pandemic but has become a thriving little city just 180 miles north of Mexico City. Because of its close proximity to the country’s capital, it has become a great coliving space for digital nomads looking for a cultural experience. The city is now home to close to 200,000 residents and is rich in Mexican heritage. The town has attracted a significant number of foreign retirees, artists, writers, and tourists from around the globe.
The city is a hub for many of the state festivals, these festivals are purely Mexican and express religious views. If you’re looking to dive straight into the culture, then there are plenty of opportunities here to do so. Because this is mainly a quiet little town, you won’t find any nightclubs or restaurants open until the early hours. This is the perfect place for remote workers who want a slow-paced lifestyle change and a new experience. You will still find an abundance of cafes and bars on every street and of course live music performances nearly every night of the week.
The cost of living here is quite reasonable especially because you are outside any major cities, such as the state capital and Mexico City. This is a great place for digital nomads to save a little extra money and possibly pick up a new language too. There is no public transportation here, so you will find most people walking or driving cars. The lack of public transport means you should probably choose a coliving place that’s near the city. The nearest airport is 60 miles away with only a few flights a day or you can drive 180 miles to Mexico City, which has flights connecting all around the world.
