Nomads interested in working in Ponta Delgada can find detailed information in the new report about living expenses, available housing, and average internet speeds in the area. The Crucial Constructs report also includes experiences from other remote workers that have spent time on the islands and their suggestions for new travelers.
While the area has many benefits for remote workers, including warm weather year-round, excellent internet speeds, and a population that mostly speaks English, the report also mentions a few complications. The area is known for having a large percentage of tobacco smokers and is lacking in hospitals that are up to current world standards.
The report showcases average accommodation prices for hotels and Airbnbs, but the most reasonably priced option is a 1 bedroom studio apartment, many of which can be rented for approximately $531 USD per month. The average cost of living can also be found in the report, with estimates ranging from $645 per month for a local, up to $2,042 per month for a digital nomad.
Remote workers that require a co-working space can find several options nearby that are available for around $85 per month. While the internet speed will vary around the islands, the report shows that testing has found an average connection speed of 41 Mbps, more than sufficient for most remote employees.
Overall, the report has given Ponta Delgada an 82% score, when ranked for the quality of life, family friendliness, cost of living, internet speed, adventure opportunities, and climate. The area is often referred to as the “Hawaii of the Atlantic Ocean,” and is considered a top destination for digital nomads who want to experience nature while traveling and working on a budget.
