Antigua Edition- October 20th- November 10th, 2024
Join us in Antigua, Guatemala: a cozy, colorful city known for its close-knit community, rainbow architecture and delicious food.BOOK YOUR TRIP
Antigua's a bit of a hidden gem in the remote working world. This friendly city sits between three volcanoes and has plenty of hidden corners to explore. While it's a smaller city, it certainly crams a lot into a small space: a quick wander around Antigua and you'll discover hidden bars, baroque architecture, artisan markets, and unique coffee shops. There are volcanoes to hike and cobbled streets to explore as well as beautiful lakes just outside of the city itself. A perfect spot for adventurers, photographers, and discoverers, Antigua’s perpetual temperate weather means you'll likely spend most of your time outdoors. This endlessly innovative city is also a hub for creatives with outlets for dancing, cooking, learning new skills and all-round chilling out. If you already speak Spanish, you’ll likely find yourself quickly acquainted with the local community. If you don’t yet, it’s a brilliant place for picking it up at a nearby language school in your free time. We'll be staying at a group of secluded, one bed villas just perfectly located a 10 minute walk from the main square. They’re filled to the brim with local artwork, remote-worker-friendly amenities and peaceful surroundings. Each of the villas opens up to a central courtyard and is right in front of a lovely restaurant and co working space with a pool, ensuring a post-work dip with your new friends is a daily occurrence. High speed WIFI, fully-equipped kitchens, and a nearby traditional market are just some of the best features, alongside a beautiful shared garden surrounded by lush vegetation. It’s everything you need for a fulfilling, exciting remote work experience.
Explore Unique Streets
Wander through the city and see the colonial and colourful architecture that lines the streets. Exploring the city by foot will give you a great sense of the rich cultural and historical heritage of the Guatemalan capital.
Trip to Lake Atitlan
You can't visit Guatemala without taking a trip to the amazing, sacred Lake Atitlan. It’s the deepest lake in Central America, boasts incredible panoramic views and is considered to be one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.
One of the beauties of being surrounded by volcanos in Antigua, is that we're close enough to hike one. Get on your hiking boots and be prepared to visit a magical place above the clouds
