Digital Nomad Destinations

New York, NY–Adeventurely, a travel club and online resource platform for digital nomads, recently published an article titled ‘The Top 20 Digital Nomad Destinations for U.S. residents in 2023.

The article claims that unlike most top lists released today, they “completely disregard destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean as destinations for digital nomads despite being found as the most popular region for travelers” worldwide in 2022.

The article cites data from an MBO partners survey highlighting the significant surge in nomads worldwide. The survey also reveals that most working travelers worldwide are U.S. citizens (131% increase in Americans identifying as digital nomads compared to pre-pandemic 2019).

What We Think

The surge in American nomads underlines a shifting work landscape, with more professionals embracing remote work. By highlighting factors like infrastructure, cultural experiences, and safety, Adventurely assists nomads in making informed travel choices.

However, omitting Latin America and the Caribbean, traditionally popular nomad regions, may overlook valuable opportunities for diverse experiences and cultural immersion, warranting a more comprehensive exploration of global digital nomad hotspots.
