Digital Nomadism: a growing trend in Latin America
Being able to work from wherever you are and enjoying this work model to travel is a growing trend. The post pandemic scenery made remote workers want to improve their lifestyle and have a better work-life balance.
Beginning with the trend of quarantine apartments, remote workers realized they can have a better lifestyle without the need of quitting their jobs. Companies are also more flexible to this kind of choice from their employees. Once workers manage their time, productivity won’t be altered.
There has never been so many digital nomads
For several different reasons, remote workers are looking for a nomad experience more than ever. According to Airbnb, long-term stays (at least 28 nights) have almost doubled the last year.
In 2020, there were 50% more digital nomads in the US than in the previous year, scaling from 7.3 to 10.9 million (MBO Partners). This number has a strong influence on the pandemics, forcing people to discover a new way to work.

Benefits of a digital nomad lifestyle
With more flexibility at work, and remote arrangements flooding employee’s homes with work, many are looking for a better work-life balance. The new remote worker wants to enjoy their work benefits to improve their lifestyle.
Let’s dive into some of the main benefits:
Traveling & meeting cool places
The number one benefit for digital nomads is becoming a traveler and being able to visit the most amazing places in the world while keeping your income and developing professionally.
Having a flexible schedule
Working remotely brought the chance to have flexible arrangements to personalize your daily work routine. You can save your most productive time of the day (or night) to work and spare time for getaways.
No dress-code or bad work politics
Being forced to fit in a toxic company’s culture is stressful, especially in the presencial format. By working remotely, you don’t need to worry about dressing up for work, nor have to keep up with work politics that don’t make sense to you.
Grow healthier habits
You can be in control of your routine and add to the healthy habits you always wanted to have. Go for a walk at the beach in the morning, cook your vegan meals or meditate in a sacred garden after work – you can build your routine based on what’s important to you.
Learn languages & visit cultures
Exploring the world around you and meeting new kinds of realities is wonderful for both your brain and your heart. As a digital nomad, you can make cultural-diving as part of your routine. The amount of learning and self-discovery that results from this process may surprise you.
