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. 

Cusco, Peru

included weekend trip to hike in the Salkantay Region

option to add on the 2-day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

August 11 - September 8, 2024

1. The activity level of this trip is high. There are 2 days of hiking on the weekend trip. The terrain on the hiking days is strenuous, steep, and at a high-altitude. However, these trails are generally considered accessible to most healthy travelers with the proper preparation.

 

2. All travelers should also be aware of the high altitudes of many of the destinations on this trip. Cusco is at an elevation of about 12,000 feet, the cabins in the Salkantay region are at an elevation of 12,400 feet, and the highest elevation reached on a planned hiking day would be 15,190 at Salkantay Pass. Optional excursions may be at higher altitudes. Everyone reacts to altitude differently, regardless of fitness and age. For details on how to best prepare and what to do in the event you are affected during the trip, please consult your physician. 

 

3. Good shoes for hiking will be needed, but travelers will not be required to bring any other hiking or camping equipment.

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 good 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 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.

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. 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? 

The deposit that is non-refundable. There will be other non-refundable costs for canceling for other reasons as you get closer to your departure date (please read your trip's specific cancellation policy closely while signing up for due dates and cancellation costs).

How long will these packages be available?

TWC Remote Work Experiences are now a staple TWC service that we offer several times a year! 

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.
