Top Coworking Spaces in Brazil
Recent reviews in Brazil
Sitting on one of the 7 continents in the world, Brazil is in South America, which stretches from the Amazon Basin (north) to the massive Iguaçu Falls (south). Brazil is a vast country known for its Ipanema beaches, the bustling Copacabana and the scintillating and rowdy Carnival festival where doing the samba in the street is expected.
Prior to the 2014 FIFA World Cup (held in Brazil) the government legislated tax breaks for new telecom investments in networks that supported access to mobile or fixed broadband and more improvements should be seen with the 2016 Olympic Games happening in Brazil. The Internet usage in Brazil doubled in the years 2005 to 2008 with now over 35.5 million souls using it and the sales of computers has soared. Brazil is predominantly an at-home net surfing population but with well over 35 coworking spaces already up and running, some locals must be venturing out.
Digital nomads generally have a mixed perception of working in Brazil, ranging from loving it (those with a high level of tolerance) to those hating it. As with any country there are a certain number of cultural differences that can't be ignored and some have logistical dramas. The Brazilian folks are a likeable bunch with a great zest for life that does rub off if you hang out with them. Great music, good food and rowdy conversations are the revolving issues for any night out where anyone can be mistaken for a local (change your body language to that of a confident outgoing strut and wear what the locals do) of course when you open your mouth, this will all change.
Points in the digital nomad compatibility scale need to be deducted for the red tape of the bureaucracy (for getting a SIM card or extending your visa), the unstable economy and it is not exactly a cheap place to live. Not many Brazilians can speak English, so you will have to brush up on your Portuguese. Because of the country's size, you won't just be jumping around from city to city like an over-excited bunny.
The biggest challenge will be finding reliable Wi-Fi to use outside of coworking spaces, apart from the visa issues.
