Our story

So, you’re curious how it all started? Our tale begins with a few restless misfits, filled with a deep longing to experience the wonder of this world, through amazed, childlike eyes. We were disappointed to find that a conventional, static life, couldn’t give us that. After many years of trying to thrive in a way of life that didn’t suit, working hard for an ever elusive dream that tomorrow would be better as long as we sacrificed the joy of today, we realized that things had to change.

The weariness set in on a particular young man named Diego. He thought about inviting a few friends to Bolivia, a country he knows and loves, for some time away to refresh, reset, achieve work goals and live a life that included raw adventure for a few weeks. Before setting off on this adventure, Diego met up with his old friend Julia, who shared a love of experiencing the world. The idea of travelling together and working together in a community sparked a brilliant collaboration between these two soon-to-be business partners. They sent out their first 100 emails to friends who might be interested in a trip away and voila!

WiFi Tribe was born.

We’ve been on the road ever since. From its humble beginnings, WiFi Tribe has grown into a bold, beautiful, tight-knit community filled with like-minded, adventure seeking professionals across the globe. Our heart is to facilitate an environment where the whole world feels like home. We travel with open minds, with open hearts, and a desire to be our best selves and live our best lives.

But we don’t want to keep it to ourselves. We want you to join us on the journey of a lifetime. To help us build amazing memories, hilarious friendships, and stories worth sharing.
