COLIVINGS in Tenerife – remote work and digital nomadism

The COVID-19 pandemic has made it possible to work remotely, so colivings in Tenerife have sprung up like mushrooms after the rain. This is a housing option similar to dormitories. 
We pay for a room in one of the apartments, where several people will live with us, also having their own rooms. Some coliving also offers private apartments, which is a good option for those who value privacy but want to belong to the digital nomad communities more intensively. Choosing such accommodation, you will immediately join the community of digital nomads, which is great if you are traveling alone or this is a new lifestyle for you.

Coliving owners also often organize activities such as yoga, surf, parties, or hikings around Tenerife.

What part of the island to live on as a digital nomad?

The Teide volcano divides Tenerife into two climatic zones – northern and southern.

North of Tenerife
The north of the island is characterized by lower temperatures and more rainfall than the South, which translates into much more diverse vegetation. Cooler So parts of Tenerife are very green and more authentic. It’s also cheaper here than South. The beaches found here are those with black sand, and in the north there is also a fewer tourists. There are numerous guachinche, or restaurants with local food.
South of Tenerife
The south, on the other hand, is characterized by very little rainfall and sunny weather. However, this translates into vegetation – the climate is very dry, in the Many of the flora present is one that manages to survive a long period without rainfall. Driving from the southern airport, we will see mountainous areas in the distance, The rest are desert areas. Virtually all of the palm trees found in the south are artificially irrigated.

My choice was south, namely Los Cristianos, and I do not regret my decision.

Los Cristianos, Las Americas and Adeje are cities that are separated by very short distances, so if you choose to stay in Las Americas, for example, you can walk or take a bus to Los Cristianos for a nomadic meeting.
