9 reasons why Gran Canaria is great for digital nomads

1. Digital nomad community

If you are looking for a partner to work on new projects or simply want to meet like-minded people who have a story and experience to share, you will be served.

Las Palmas is a great spot for fellow digital nomads and remote workers. Las Palmas was top-1 on Nomadlist for a number of weeks.
2. Subtropical climate
It's either spring or summer, so in other words, it's neither too hot, nor too cold.

We have very good weather especially in winter. Winter is the highest season in Gran Canaria!
3. Affordable Lifestyle

Probably one of the most important points.

First things first, let's talk about the flights, on average depending on the season and from which part of Europe you are coming from, the prices will be between 60€ and 200€.

Once landed, you will quickly notice that Las Palmas is quite cheap compared to other European cities such as Barcelona or Madrid in Spain.

We will never say it enough, but locals are so welcoming and helpful - not only digital nomads!

They're literary proactive in their approach don't be surprised if a stranger greets you or comes to help when they notice an invisible questionmark above your head.

5. All landscapes included

This is probably the most interesting part, if you usually live in a city center well this island will blow your minds since it's offering all kinds of landscape from the beach lover to the hiking one…


The island is quite small but rich in her nature, every island has its specificity.
6. Lots of events and activities the entire year
If you like festivals, here are the most famous: International film festival, Jazz festival, Opera festival, Classic music festival and Theater festival.

But we can't talk about an event without mentioning the most important one on the island: Carnival. We literally celebrate it for more than a month!

And obviously the weekly meetup events where you can network, improve your Spanish or simply share a drink and tapas with locals and people from all around the world.
