Is Spain a good place to work remotely

The land of sangria, tapas, and siestas, Spain is one of Western Europe’s most popular destinations for digital nomads and remote workers. With excellent food, year-round sunshine, and a surprisingly low cost of living, it attracts remote workers in large numbers to the sunny south.

In a country as large as Spain, there is something for everyone. Whether you are seeking tranquility or more excitement, beaches or mountains, or cities with a rich history and culture, Spain has it all.

Compared to other popular workation destinations such as Curaçao, Thailand, Argentina, or Mexico, Spain has one big advantage: no time difference with the Netherlands.

In Spain, you will find a wide range of co-working spaces and a close-knit community of workationers, making it easy to meet other remote workers. Every week, there are several meetups where you can connect with fellow professionals and exchange experiences. These communities can be found in cities like Barcelona, Valencia, and Madrid.

When it comes to accommodation, there are plenty of apartments, hotels, and resorts with reliable high-speed Wi-Fi to choose from.The average cost of living in Spain ranges between €1,400-€2,500 per month, making it significantly cheaper than the Netherlands.
