Going to Spain for work, internship, volunteer project, study, travel, living or backpacking

With over 1600 kilometres of coast line and its outlying Balearic and Canary Islands, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Spain is known for the sun-sea-party package holidays. But there is more. A lot more. From rich cultural heritage, beautiful architecture, an abundance of museums and places of extraordinary natural beauty to tasty tapas, challenging outdoor activities and interesting cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, San Sebastian and Granada.

Working as a digital nomad in Spain

  • Favorite cities and islands: Alicante, Barcelona, Cadiz, Gran Canaria, La Palma, Ibiza, Mallorca, Malaga, Valencia.
  • Characteristics: great relaxed places where good life is often a bit more important than working life.

Living in Spain

  • Language: English is spoken almost everywhere but without Spanish you remain an outsider.
  • Health care: Generally of excellent quality. If you go to Spain as a pensionado check your insurance situation carefully.
  • Characteristics: The real Spanish atmosphere creates a culture where many expatriates, emigrants and working nomads quickly feel at home. Not everyone integrates as quickly, and some locations are very internationally oriented, but in general there is an ideal place for everyone. Don't be alarmed if you are overrun by the somewhat older winter visitors during the winter.
