Hi Everyone, love this site - thanks Rob. I'm coming to Zihua next week and was wondering if Zihua offers any places to work from. The place where I stay doesn't have reliable wifi and I'm hoping to be able to work and was curious if there was a spot I could work from. - Thanks

I don't know from experience about in town or if there are co-work offices anywhere. But I have worked from Loot on la ropa for a full morning, and their wifi seems solid and supports video. They did not seem to care since I was buying coffee. I've also seen people working from Jaguar Negro café in town.

Among others available, I use a baIT phone chip SIM card.
With that, I can " work from " anywhere aquí en Z.
I have a sturdy and lightweight folding chair & table, I take my " offfice " wherever.
No need to go to any particular place.
I got it for the same reason you noted: "where I stay doesn't have reliable WiFi."
The only caveat is to be sure your phone is compatible with it.

¿Cómo funciona bait de Bodega Aurrera?

"El nombre de BAIT no tiene ninguna ciencia:
Bodega Aurrera Internet y Telefonía.
Pero lo más interesante es su oferta comercial, ya que ofrece recargas desde 10 pesos con 250 MB para un día, o hasta internet y llamadas ilimitadas durante un mes por sólo 300 pesos."

For 300.00 pesos per month, I get pretty much unlimited Internet WHEREVER I am.
175.00 per month for the 1,050 for 6 months "plan" option.

re: "How's the service "?

Although not perfect, for the most part, the baIT Internet access works well.
Every now and then, there's a "glitch" or disruption.

This seems a bit too good to be true. How is the service?

I've used tethered wifi connected to cellular data to work while traveling in Europe. If you use a lot of bandwidth for video calls that are long or consecutive, the phone can overheat and shut down. Especially in a hot climate. I was doing a lot of video though, so probably an extreme case.
