With technology, it is now possible for many people to travel and live abroad while working from home. In the web community, the generic term often used is digital nomad .
Imagine being able to work on the edge of the sea, in the country of your choice, your laptop nearby, while sipping your margarita … it gets worse as conditions of work, is not it?
Well, the reality is not exactly that! First, it is almost impossible to read a screen by being outside, and we recommend the beach to prevent infiltration of sand in your MacBook.

Many hotels now offer facilities of all kinds: spas, swimming pools, gyms … And when has an idyllic and last cry infrastructure, all exercise suddenly becomes easier. To help you keep your resolutions, this website will help you get started www.nlpcoaching.com.au.
Nevertheless it is possible to go abroad while working and without facing the journey to the office, in a storm of snow!
Why work remotely in Mexico?
Indeed, Mexico, and especially Playa del Carmen, attracts a large community of mobile workers (who are not necessarily “nomads” in the strict sense of the word). However there is no official census, there was a substantial increase in the number of young workers, often between 20 and 40 years, who bring laptop and iPhone to make a living under the sun. It is easy to walk to Playa del Carmen, the city is safe and English is spoken in many shops.
What are the jobs that one can do as a digital nomad ?
There are many: webmaster, technical, translator, editor, journalist, designer, teacher, coach, virtual administrative assistant (virtual assistant) and so on. I even had knowledge of professional poker players! Some travelers will also negotiate an agreement with their employer to perform their tasks outside the office on a permanent basis.
Before you embark on this project for the first time, here are five things to know if you want to work remotely in Mexico:
1. There is the internet in Mexico, but …
Although Mexico is connected, it remains that the infrastructure is not the same level of what is known in Canada or Europe .There are a few cafes where you can enjoy the wi-fi, but the speed of the connection to the network can sometimes be disappointing. When it comes time to choose housing, make sure that a provider can offer the Internet. The best provider seems Cablemás, but for the moment their service is only available in some areas.
2. Bring your Computer Accessories
Cables, USB key, headphones, microphones, external hard drives, etc. If possible, bring them. You will find all this material in Mexican stores, but prices are sometimes very high, like most electronic equipment sold in Mexico.
3. It is better to get up early
If you want to work from a coffee shop or other public place, go there in the morning. There are less crowded and you will have room to sit well. Playa del Carmen is very popular among nomads digital , you will not be alone. As it is very hot in the afternoon, you can take the opportunity to swim or relax in a beach club.
4. Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya are safe places
It is likely that you will travel with tools that few Mexicans can afford: portable computers, tablets, etc. That said, you’re not so much to cause you to fly. Many parts of Mexico are safe . Be vigilant, keep an eye on your things and make the necessary you need if you work in a public place. At home, pull your curtains (so we can not see your valuables). Of course, do not leave personal belongings in a vehicle.
You will come across Mexicans who do the same thing as you, that is to say, who have left their region of origin to be closer to the sea and working remotely. No one will be surprised to see you.
5. You do not need a visa to work in your trade
If your activities have no connection with an organization of Mexican territory (for example, you are a translator and webmaster or have your own clients or your employer is based in another country and you allow telecommuting), a visa n ‘ is normally not required because you do not enter the Mexican labor market.
I say “normally” because in fact, the status of digital or digital nomads workers living in other countries is still fuzzy at the immigration for the majority of countries, including Mexico. The immigration laws do not reflect this status which is fairly new.With the growing increase of this type of workers, legislation will be adjusted (or not!). For now, the best advice for you are these:
With regard to tax legislation, if you intend to live long-term in Mexico, it will report your income, even if they are perceived in another country. Eventually, he will think about obtaining a residence visa.
The former ‘brain’ of Privilege fator genius sleeps customers rather than make them dance for hours. Concept Hotel Group, signing the former manager of the iconic nightclub, increase revenue and already has the highest rated hotel in the party area.

Hotels follow the general accounting principles, but because of the unique nature of accounting guests, accounting departments of hotels use terms that may be unfamiliar with counters in other industries. The terms related to the management of customer payments accounting charges and conflicts can be confusing to outsiders, but they represent everyday concepts in the hotel industry. If you are a director or CEO of a hotel, you can hire a book keeping service such as bookkeeper brisbane to help you manage your business.
A few days ago I saw a list of “best” hotels in Instagram by the number of followers that was published in Tecnohoteles and I make Social Hotels , I found it very interesting to approach the prospect with these great tourist giants and see approach each offer.
Here I will make a list of contents insurance can take, although we will, as I say that imagination can work even better than them as much advantage of their media coverage, and why not do it well, but I would go running to hire the Pope Francisco with almost 4,000,000 followers, takes the hotel afloat … Fixed !!
The key to the question “How to get a lot of followers on Instagram?” are:
What especially could highlight is the goal that all succeed, personalized attention from customers and channel direct and immediate communication . Highlight the need for creativity and how we get off to a style close communication with the client.
Let us be the tie and jacket hanging on the chair and go down to talk on equal terms with “ordinary mortals”.

However, the blank facades have integrated panels and TripleLynx inverters that make Crowne Plaza hotel the first energy efficient in Denmark and one of the first of its kind in the world. High quality in the social and environmental aspects are the key elements in creating the Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers, located in Copenhagen, Denmark. It combines the largest integrated solar photovoltaic facade (PV) technology installed in Denmark and frontline energy-efficient, reducing energy consumption by 53% compared to conventional hotels.
A large energy saving heating in winter and cooling in summer
The Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers was built in 2009. It is located in the city center, where more than 300 rooms await your arrival and spread over 26 floors. Crowne Plaza hotel is built in accordance with the Danish Low Energy Class 2 standard, which means that the energy consumption must not exceed 42.6 kWh per m2 per year.

“In terms of energy production and consumption of the cooling and heating system it is very unique to the hotel. The water used for heating in winter is recycled for cooling during the summer … “says the representative of Copenhagen Hotel Management A / S, Stefan Amraly.
The idea of the hotel was not only generate much of the energy used, but also save as much energy as possible.Apart from this ingenious concept, the hotel is known as the first in Denmark to receive all of its energy from renewable and sustainable sources.

This system is the first of its kind in Denmark, and saves up to 90% of the energy used for climate regulation inside the hotel.
Multiple overlapping energy saving initiatives
A large number of energy saving measures and environmental and socially friendly measures are applied in the interior, in addition to construction. For example, intelligent control of lighting and light sources of low consumption, LED flat screens in every hotel room and computer control of all electronic equipment. This ensures that consumption is kept as low as possible, especially when the rooms are vacant. Moreover, all the infrastructure components were chosen hotel for reasons of energy efficiency and the degree of reuse.Moreover, a series of bombs in the building of the water circulating inside the hotel heating and cooling system.Speed controlled by frequency converters and contributes to greater energy savings in the pumping system varies.
Allan L. Agerholm, manager of Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers, said: “We only use energy-efficient sources of light, the latest green technologies in kitchen equipment, hi-fi, and even the hair dryer in the bathroom is energy efficient” .
The hotel is more than what you expect from a regular hotel. Not because of the quality in general, but due to high environmental and social consciousness that implies for the whole hotel from the staff, on the interior design requirements of organic decomposition in the toilets, energy production in the gym, etc. . The rooms overlook the skyline of Copenhagen and the Øresund Region. And guests can spend the mini-bar and mounted on a stationary bike, generating electricity, and earn points for a free meal at the restaurant.
“The bikes invite guests to exercise in new ways that benefit their personal health and welfare and the environment in general. Guests literally provide the energy at the hotel.

However, on the other hand, it also appears as the socio-eco-conciencial current also apply in the services sector situation, “he says on this subject the general manager of Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers, Allan L.
