Remote working in Fuerteventura paradise

The reasons for the success of Fuerteventura remote working

Welcome to Canarias! Welcome to Fuerteventura, the paradise for remote workers.

Since the start of the pandemia more and more employers are allowing their staff to work online from home, or from… anywhere. The lead to the creation of a new profile of young professionals: remote workers, also called digital nomads, or professional expats. 

In general, remote workers are highly qualified young professionals, usually without family obligations, and with an entrepreneurial spirit and an open mind. Obviously Fuerteventura, such as most other Canary Islands, welcomes remote workers with open arms. Let’s check out the Fuerteventura remote working scene!
