Have you been dreaming about your 2022 travel goals? If so, consider adding Mexico City to your list of ‘must-visit’ places. Mexico City is the perfect place for solo travelers. As a digital nomad, Mexico City has been one of my favorite places to work remotely from, build community, and explore all the unique neighborhoods.
I originally planned to stay in Mexico City for one month but stayed for three months after seeing how much there was to explore. Mexico City is filled with endless things to experience, such as museums, galleries, parks, rooftops, and more.
With remote work becoming more popular by the day, it’s essential to find the perfect atmosphere to work remotely from. When I first started working from home, I ended up in a routine where I would work from bed, which proved not to be sustainable nor helpful for my mental health. Even with all the perks of working from home, leaving the house and creating separation between your work life and personal life is important.
There is no shortage of places to work from in Mexico City. From co-working spaces to hotel rooftops and even coffee shops, Mexico City has a lot to offer for digital nomads. I’m currently counting down the days until I return. Here are coffee shops you should check out within different neighborhoods of Mexico City.
Niddo is a gorgeous cafe located in the Juarez neighborhood. The cafe is located on the corner and takes up two blocks of outside seating and a bar inside seating. Niddo Cafe has a bohemian-style vibe and offers an aesthetically pleasing location to work remotely from.
Blend Station is located in the Condesa neighborhood. Condessa is a trendy area in Mexico City that attracts many expats. Blend Station prides itself on serving high-quality Mexican Coffee. The shop offers plenty of indoor and outdoor seating and plenty of outlets at each table. The crowd at Blend Station is young and creative.
I frequently visited Panaderia Rossesta when I lived in Mexico City. This cafe is located in Roma, another popular community in Mexico City for digital nomads. There’s usually about a 20-minute wait to get a table outside, but it’s worth it. Unfortunately, there isn’t any inside seating. The bakery also offers fresh-made goods, and I recommend trying the guava pastries as you work.
This cafe is located in one of my favorite neighborhoods: Coyoacán. Coyoacán is further from Roma and Condessa, but it still offers an excellent authentic and local experience. The atmosphere is light, and the coffee is sourced locally. Once you spend the workday here, you can easily wander through Coyoacán and explore the markets and shops.
Almanegra Café is located in Roma Norte. This minimalist coffee shop offers a quiet and comfortable atmosphere and is an architectural gem. This coffee shop is frequently listed as one of the best, and it is easy to see why.
