Deciding on where to base yourself as a digital nomad in Spain can be tricky, do you go for somewhere that already has a strong community like Barcelona or the Canary Islands or do you choose up-and-coming like Valencia or somewhere that may not even be on your radar like the historic city of Cuenca in Castilla-La Mancha?

According to the Panorama Freelance Europe study, eight out of ten freelancers in Spain choose to live in either Madrid or Barcelona, ​​however, a separate study by the travel agency Rumbo based on 5,000 surveys revealed that 44 percent of digital nomads in Spain prefer more beachy or nature destinations such as the Canary Islands, Málaga and Asturias.
