This year the first WordCamp Medellín will be held in this city, and by being one of the organizers, I had the perfect excuse to come and visit Colombia for one month. Unfortunately, it won’t be a vacations trip. I’ll be working from there, so I need to find nice places with reliable internet and a nice infrastructure.
Colombia offers good internet and a strong signal and you can easily find free Wi-Fi in coffee shops and bars. However, they are not always the nicest and quiet places to work from.
I have started a small research in co-workings and I’m pleased to find that there is a long list of possibilities with good services and an interesting variety of prices.
HubBOG seems like a professional place to work from. However, its focus is on startups, which is interesting but more oriented for long visits and people looking to develop businesses. In addition to the usual services provided, it also offers mentoring and formation courses. Prices varies between 40.000COP/day, 180.000COP/week and 445.000COP/month. On the same trend you can find Impact Hub Bogotá, Zona E and Wikideas. However, it seems that you can’t find a daily or weekly fare on these sites.
Atom House and Magicville seem like a more interesting match. They offer daily and weekly services within an interesting range of prices. Moreover, there is an attractive service offered by Magicville in which you also have the opportunity to live and have an intercultural experience that empowers the creation, development & production of their startup ideas as they advertise.
As you can see, there is an interesting offer in Bogotá and it would depend on what it is exactly you are looking for. You can always rely on Coworker and check some other possibilities or find more detailed information about them.
That’s all for now, thanks for your comments and feedback.
