Medellin
One of the most popular locations in the world for remote workers these days, Medellin offers stunning mountain scenery and a great year-round climate. The wifi is fast, the nightlife vibrant and the cost of living is quite low for the quality of life you get in return. While safety remains a concern in some areas, it's far better than it used to be and general common sense is enough if you stay away from the rougher neighborhoods. The public transportation system is efficient and there is no shortage of museums, parks and cultural events to keep one entertained. Living here also ensures you're surrounded by a large and active community of remote workers, with endless meetups and activities to join.
