Specialists of many professions have been able to work remotely with the development of Internet technologies. This makes it possible to significantly improve the quality of our lives. We can do our work while living in a more comfortable climate, or even traveling.
Digital nomads have become a desirable type of visiting traveler for many countries. They usually stay longer than regular tourists. They are pretty affordable. In addition, most tourists come to the Mediterranean coast of Spain in the summer, and people looking for a comfortable place for remote work can come at any time of the year, for example, in autumn, winter, spring.
Where would you like to go to work remotely? Perhaps to Spain? It is reported that the Costa del Sol will seek to attract young German digital nomads to live and work remotely. Why only from Germany? If you live in another country in northern Europe or in America, then you can also think about a trip to Spain.
How can the Costa del Sol attract digital nomads from other countries?
First of all, it is a warm, Mediterranean climate. Even in winter, the weather here is more comfortable than in many northern countries. The sun and beaches will attract tourists from late spring to early autumn.
The whole of Spain and Andalusia in particular is a very interesting destination for travel lovers, with lots of historical sights, cultural events and delicious food.
The province of Malaga also has good technical conditions for remote work. Among the technical infrastructure that is on the Costa del Sol to facilitate remote work, there is a fairly large number of coworking spaces, shared offices.
In addition, on the Costa del Sol there is an opportunity to organize co-living - an area where creative people can live and work next to each other, communicate, which can contribute to professional and personal development. Perhaps the authorities of the province of Malaga will make additional efforts to attract young people to work remotely. (They will create comfortable conditions for remote work and for creative processes.)
Who are the modern digital nomads? These are predominantly millennials. They usually have a good education, experience in international travel, and connections with people and companies in different countries.
They tend to specialize in digital professions such as blogging, social media, e-commerce, web design, affiliate marketing, and more.
Do you fit into these categories? Perhaps you should choose the Mediterranean coast for remote work?
There are many countries in the world that are popular with digital nomads. For example: Thailand, Vietnam, Mexico, Portugal, Spain and many others.
Estonia is believed to have been one of the first countries to decide that remote workers are good for the economy.
Much is needed to attract digital tourists. For example: good climate, sea and beaches, liberal visa and tax policies, fast internet, cheap housing and food, coworking spaces.
There are many suitable tourist towns on the Costa del Sol. For example: Malaga, Torremolinos, Fuengirola, Marbella, Nerja. But it seems to us that "digital nomads" planning a trip to work remotely in Spain will not be limited to this stretch of coast. On the Mediterranean coast of Spain there are many convenient, interesting, comfortable cities.

(Recently, many Russians have moved to work remotely in Georgia, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan. They had their own reasons to quickly leave their homeland.)
