Sometimes working inside our tiny homes just isn’t conducive to productivity. Fortunately, there are often good alternatives.

For two months I worked from a co-work office space in Sayulita, Mexico. The surf, a block away, was going off every day. Mexico’s best carnitas tacos were right next door, served out of the living room of a young couple’s home. The best fish tacos in a hundred miles were half a block away. The beach was packed with locals, and mango sellers. Oh, and the internet at the co-work was fiber, and as fast as anything I’d ever used. The desks were comfortable, the air-conditioning always on, and I paid just $100 a month for the space. On top of that, they gave me a set of keys, and I was the only one there from seven in the morning until about ten, when a few stragglers—mostly internet marketing professionals—showed up to put in a few hours of work. Me? I’m done by noon, and surfing by one. Sayulita trader—living the life.
