4 weeks Coliving & Coworking in the Mexican mountains
Welcome to the colonial city right in the middle of the southern state of Oaxaca (also the safest state in Mexico). It’s best known as a foodie paradise, though it doesn’t get as much international attention as Mexico City. Oaxaca is home to some of the best mezcal distilleries and Mexican restaurants in the country. It's characterised by colourful buildings, majestic cathedrals, lively markets and fascinating culture - we can't wait to stroll around and explore.
Please read the following abstracts with COVID precautions in mind.
From the markets and street-corner stands to the city’s new wave of fusion restaurants. The state's great cultural and biological diversity means that there is a wide range of ingredients and methods of preparation, many of these dating back to pre-Hispanic times. Flavorful moles, fresh herbs, dried chiles, quesillo, and handmade corn tortillas are just a few of the elements that make Oaxacan food so special.
A Mezcaleria for Every Kind of Sipper
Héctor Audiffred (he runs La Popular and La Otra, two bars along Calle de Manuel García Vigil) remembers when you had to travel into the villages to get great mezcal. No longer: Now it’s easy to find rare Tepextate in the city.
Have you ever tried it? Not yet? Well, then it might be time to go for a tasting and soak up the rich history and tradition that surrounds this drink.
Sunbath in Zipolite
Zipolite is a small, secluded beach town where the jungle-thick mountains meet the sea. Lots of the restaurants offer locally grown coffee, tropical fruits, and fresh-caught dorado; there are also daily yoga classes. The sunsets are amazing.
Soak at Hierve el Agua
There’s a mineral deposit that has slowly solidified into a petrified waterfall, which you can see while relaxing in a thermal mineral pool. It’s like swimming on top of the world. But the best view of the waterfall is from the hiking trails beneath it. There are little food stands at the entrance, where you can get a quick quesadilla, too.
This is one of the most incredible hidden gems in Mexico’s remote mountains. A hot springs resort - a vacationers and photographers paradise. Featuring hot pools tucked away between lush trees, a turquoise river running through the park and mysterious caves, Grutas Tolantongo is hands down one of the most unique places to visit in Mexico.
Coworking & Coliving:
Our Home in Oaxaca
Our home in Oaxaca is going to be a 17th century house, a colourful, Colonial-style building. We've selected this hotel specifically with COVID front of mind – the ideal set-up with lots of outdoor community space: shared rooftop terrace overlooking the city + mountain view, pool and beds and an open outdoor dining/ coworking space. It has 25 ensuite rooms, so we even have the chance to turn some of them in specific rooms for work calls.
We are going to stay in the centre of Oaxaca (Centro historico), only 5min walking distance from the famous Templo de Santo Domingo and lots of cafés and restaurants to explore (always with COVID precautions in mind).
The accommodation comes equipped with good internet (180 mbps fibre connection in the outdoor space), open common areas for work, it's a coliving setup that will make is easy for us all to be productive, feel comfortable, and have the freedom to explore this amazing country!
Here you can see a collection of photos of our coliving home in Oaxaca:
If you’d like to find out more about what it’s like to live in Oaxaca as a ‘digital nomad’, including internet speeds, cost of living, and coworking spaces, have a look at Nomad List’s guide. Internet speeds and stability is generally very good for the region. But we always have MiFi devices with mobile data as backups in all homes to make sure that we can keep working productively if there are any stability issues.

I’m New to This, How Does it Work?
WiFi Tribe is a membership-based community of remote professionals who travel together without sacrificing their careers. Our travel style is a bit unconventional–it's collaborative, community-focused, and even more fulfilling because we get to share it. Each Chapter is a moment in time where we colive, cowork, and explore a new country, getting our work done during the week and adventuring in our downtime.
Discover why we love to wander the world on our own terms.
Are there changes to Chapters due to COVID?
We have a responsibility to keep our members and the local communities that host us as safe as possible while we continue to travel together.
As you read through our guidelines below, you will see a combination of local government guidelines and the CDC, WHO, and RKI recommendations to ensure safety for everyone joining us on a Chapter. In addition, country-specific measures to each Chapter will be shared with attending members during the 2-week online meet-and-greet before the Chapter.
Every Tribe member has been welcomed into WiFi Tribe because we felt that there was an alignment with our 6 values: Respect, Humility, Camaraderie, Curiosity, Passion, and Inclusion. Now, it is more important than ever that we choose to live by them every day. We will enforce the following protocols as necessary, but we are confident that every member of this Chapter will respect fellow Tribe members and the local community.
