Who we are

Hi and welcome! My name is Daniela and I’ve been a digital nomad since 2014. So I know that arriving in a new city or country is always more or less challenging. There are great groups for digital nomads on Facebook, people are always willing to help, no doubt about that. But wouldn’t it be nice if you could find all the relevant information about a certain destination in one place? NomadList offers some general information about almost all countries and their most important cities but they don’t go much into detail and their information is not always correct.

What can you find here?

Digital Nomads Peru focuses on living and travelling in Peru as a digital nomad and aims to connect digital nomads with each other but also with locals. It’s not a travel blog but a resource for people who want to spend some time in Peru. It’s also a work in progress, we got started in September 2018 and are adding new content regularly.

Live & Work

Travel blogs are great resources but they normally don’t tell you much about internet speed, places to work from or how to find nomad-friendly accommodation. Digital Nomads Peru fills this gap and also provides you with useful information about everyday life in Peru outside the tourist bubble.

Lima

Although Digital Nomads Peru is not a travel blog, you’ll find quite a bit of information about Lima here. The reason is simply that Daniela can usually be found in Peru’s capital when she’s not nomading around in other Latin American countries.

Community

Join the Digital Nomads Peru Facebook group to connect with other nomads who visit Peru at the same time as you or who were already here and share tips and information with you.

Make Peru your home base

Like many other Latin American countries, Peru doesn’t make it incredibly difficult for foreigners to obtain temporary or even permanent residency or become a citizen. It may not be a tax haven like Panama and dealing with Peruvian bureaucracy can sometimes be a pain in the ass but all in all, it’s a great and affordable place to set up your home base.

About Daniela

Hi, I’m Daniela, the human being behind Digital Nomads Peru. You can see me in the picture above. I’m an introvert and I don’t like selfies – but I do love Latin America.

I took my first flight to Latin America in 1990, visiting Venezuela – a country I’d love to return to as soon as the political and economic situation allows it.

Some years later, I met a Brazilian, had two kids with him, lived in Brazil for a while and then returned to Germany, my country of origin where I never really felt at home.

After my kids had grown up, I left and started my life as a digital nomad. First, I spent some time in East Europe and Portugal but South America kept calling. The decision to live so far away from my kids wasn’t easy but I knew that I’d never be really happy in Europe. So I returned to South America in March 2017, became a resident in Peru in April 2018, have my home base in Barranco, Lima now but keep travelling.

You’re welcome to check my other blog ANDES AND BEYOND which I write for female solo travelers in Latin America.
