Working remotely, whether far before the COVID-19 pandemic or not, continues to be a reality in some professions, which means the ability to work online allows one to relocate to anywhere within one’s country or even to another one. Thanks to digital nomads and long-stay non-nationals spending weeks or months in Belize, visitors can enjoy the tropical paradise, while still getting their job done online. On Ambergris Caye off the northeast coast of Belize, some of those favorite places to get some work done are the different coffee shops in town. Here are a few options where you can be productive in the comfort of good service while working remotely in Belize.
