If you've been working remotely lately, you may be looking for a responsible and adventurous way to shake up your normal WFH routine. If you're looking to work remotely from somewhere new and closer to nature with a group of like-minded people, you're looking for a TWC Remote Work Experience!

Each month we invite a small group (8-12 people) to join us in a different location around the world to live, work, and explore for the month. Those looking to join should have the ability to work remotely for at least a few weeks (remote job, freelancer, startup project, etc). Outside of work, we adventure together (learning new languages, hiking, surfing, scuba diving, biking, road-tripping) and seeing new places. These months differ from our usual Group Trips by being about living in these destinations, so you have all the flexibility and independence you could want each day (but also an inspiring group to be with when you do want the company).

HOW IT WORKS

1. Choose which month(s) you want to join. 

Lake Atitlan and Antigua, Guatemala

January 29th - February 26th, 2023

Only 8 spots are left for this departure.

This month will be split into 2 weeks in Lake Atitlan and 2 weeks in Antigua

with an included weekend of adventures in Lake Atitlan.

See #4 below to begin reserving your spot.

 

2. Discover what's included in the package.

 

Each month's package costs $2499.

For those planning to split a room, the package costs $1899 per person. Note that the room has one bed only.​​

 

With each month's room cost, you'll get: 

  • A furnished room with daily cleaning

    • ​Standard private room with a private bathroom

  • Access to a dedicated Co-working space (Wifi, desks, private areas, coffee, water, etc)

  • Wellness classes weekly (schedule changes by location/dates but often includes yoga, meditation, etc)

  • Airport transfers for arrival and departure each month

  • A weekend trip within the country each month

    • Transportation, accommodation, and activities (varies by month)

  • Online information to help you prepare for your trip to your specific location(s) each month

  • Correspondence with TWC via email for questions and concerns pre-departure

  • A 1-hour pre-departure call with TWC to further go over the preparation information

  • A TWC Host at your destination for the month to assist the group

  • A welcome drink each month

  • Discounts on food/drink at the property

  • Taxes (Except local taxes may be an additional cost in certain locations)

Important notes for February 2023:

1. Instead of having transportation to the weekend trip destination for just one weekend, this month will be split between two destinations: Lake Atitlan and Antigua. The group will spend 2 weeks in each destination, and transportation between the two is also included. Then there will be a weekend of included adventures in Lake Atitlan as the "weekend trip."

 

2. Both Lake Atitlan and Antigua are at an elevation of about 5,000 feet, similar to Denver, Colorado. 

3. Your flights to and from Guatemala are not included. We do however happily make suggestions and notify our travelers when great flight deals are available. 

 

4. Each traveler will also have to purchase travel insurance of their choosing that fits specific requirements. This insurance starts at approximately $25 a month.

5. TWC currently requires each traveler to attest that they will have one of the following options: 1) a complete vaccination for COVID-19 or 2) a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of their departure for Guatemala. 

6. Note that there is a 3% processing fee on payments made by credit card.

3. We want to answer your questions! If you have questions while making your decision, ask a question to get in touch with TWC to chat or schedule a call. Click HERE to ask a question.

4. When you're ready to book, apply to join the month. Click HERE to apply.

The form takes about a minute to complete and starts your process. 

5. TWC will reach out to you via email within 1-2 days to discuss and finalize your itinerary.

6. After finalizing your itinerary with TWC, you'll pay a deposit. You'll be sent a link to pay a deposit on the month(s) that you want to be reserved, and then you'll receive a confirmation email from TWC.

7. Prepare for your departure. Your confirmation email will contain information on how to schedule your pre-departure call, how and when to pay any remaining balances, how to join the group message for your month(s), and where to access the materials to prepare for your trip.

Can I stay for less than a month?

These packages cannot be pro-rated for less than the 1 month (28 nights) stay. You can stay for less than 28 nights, but the cost will be the same. In our opinion, these deals are so unreal that they are worth it even if you stay less than a month.

Will I receive travel preparation guidance and advice?

Yes! Included in the monthly package is online information to help you prepare for your trip to your specific location(s), including a detailed packing list and information on culture, weather, health, safety, and emergencies, a 1-hour pre-departure call with TWC to further go over the preparation information regarding country-specific COVID-19 guidelines, entry requirements, travel insurance, phone data, currency, general safety, and more, correspondence with TWC via email for any questions and concerns pre-departure, and TWC Host at your destination (note that the Host is not a tour guide).

What is the bathroom situation?

The Standard Private Room has a private ensuite bathroom.

Can I share a room?

Yes, 2 people can split any of the private rooms and split some costs that way. The Standard Private Rooms come with one double or queen bed. However, there are different prices for people splitting a room, which are listed above under #2. This is so that the second person can have all of the extras that come with the package that would typically only apply to 1 guest. Please note that having guests stay in your room without having them join the TWC group goes against TWC guidelines. TWC typically can't match people with random roommates.

Do I need to be working to attend one of these trips?

These trips are intended to be for people working full-time, self-employed, or in school. We ask people not to sign up if they do not intend to be doing one of the above. If you want to take a trip, we offer group trips for people taking time off and custom trips

Are guests allowed?

If someone visits who is not signed up for the TWC Remote Work month, there is a nightly guest fee of $15, and the maximum number of nights a guest can stay is 4. These guests will not have access to the co-working space, wellness classes, the group message, pre-departure information, the weekend trip, etc. TWC can't arrange any travel or tours for people who are not part of the TWC group.

What COVID-19 precautions are in place?

COVID-19 precautions are set by the Co-living space and the government of the location, so they will vary from country to country. The COVID-19 protocols for the accommodation and co-working space are set by the accommodation and co-working spaces. All precautions pertaining to the rooms, co-working space, and anywhere on the property are set and the responsibility of the Co-living management. Please request the PDF written by the Co-living space outlining their COVID-19 protocols when finalizing your itinerary with TWC.

The regulations that TWC adds on top of accommodation and government regulations will be specified above.

Do I need travel insurance?

Each traveler will have to purchase travel insurance of their choosing that fits specific requirements. Exploring travel insurance policies could give you more peace of mind. There are insurance policies that include things like "cancel for any reason" clauses, specific medical coverage for COVID-19, repatriation coverage, policies that cover quarantine expenses, and more. The travel insurance requirement is one topic that we discuss in our pre-departure calls with Remote Work Experience travelers

What is the cancellation policy? 

Should it become impossible for someone to make it to their booking for a specific reasons, such as a country's border closing, then they will work with the traveler to allow them to change their dates. Otherwise, for the work that TWC does, there is a monthly deposit that is non-refundable. There may be other non-refundable costs for canceling for other reasons as you get closer to your departure date (refer to your itinerary contract for specific dates and cancellation costs), but TWC is also willing to work with a traveler on a change of dates for the same specific reasons that our accommodation partner is.

How long will these packages be available?

TWC Remote Work Experiences are now a staple TWC service that we plan to offer year-round! 

Does the package come with the remote job?

Unfortunately, no, those looking to join should already have the ability to work remotely for at least a few weeks (remote job, freelancer, startup project, etc). However, we do have many suggestions on ways to make money online over on our Blog.
