Rosario: An Unusual Destination for Digital Nomads

Have you noticed that travel blogs and social media feeds are all promoting the same five places for digital nomads?

Bali in Indonesia, Medellin in Colombia, Chiang Mai in Thailand, Valencia in Spain and Antigua in Guatemala – they’re all great destinations, but what if you want something a little different?

What if you’re looking for a city that combines culture, history, football (or soccer for my US readers), and a thriving remote work scene, but without the tourist crowds?

Look no further than Rosario, Argentina! This vibrant city on the riverbanks of the Paraná River offers a mix of charm, affordability, a passionate football scene and a welcoming community for remote workers.

Why Rosario? Why Not!

Rosario boasts a rich mix of history and passion. It’s the birthplace of iconic figures like revolutionary leader Che Guevara and legendary footballers Lionel Messi and Ángel Di María. 

History buffs will find themselves drawn to the majestic National Flag Monument, a testament to Argentina’s national pride.

But beyond the historical significance, Rosario pulsates with a modern energy. Art galleries showcase local talent, trendy cafes line the streets, and the nightlife is as vibrant as the city’s passionate football culture. Website

Transparency Time: Safety in Rosario

Let’s address the elephant in the room. You might have stumbled upon some information regarding safety concerns in Rosario. The city has indeed been confronted with security issues in the recent past, particularly in certain outlying areas.

However, with a little awareness and by sticking to some basic safety measures, you can have a safe and enjoyable experience in Rosario.

Focus on the Center: Staying Safe in Rosario

The key to experiencing the best of Rosario safely is to focus on the city centre. This area is home to the vibrant cultural scene, historical landmarks, and co-working spaces I’ll mention later on. Here, you’ll find a bustling atmosphere with plenty of people around, which naturally deters any potential issues.

Here are some additional safety tips to keep in mind:

  • Be street smart: This applies anywhere you travel. Stay aware of your surroundings, avoid deserted areas at night, and don’t carry excessive amounts of cash or valuables.
  • Connect with locals: Rosario boasts a friendly and welcoming community. Consider joining a local walking tour (Check the Rosario Free Tours on IG) or language exchange program. Not only will you gain valuable insights into the city, but you’ll also make connections with people who can guide you towards safe areas and experiences.
  • Taxis (and Uber) are your friend: Especially at night, opt for official taxis instead of walking long distances alone. Metered taxis are the safest option, and most co-working spaces or friendly locals can help you hail one.
  • Let someone know: If you’re planning on exploring outside the city center, inform a friend, colleague, or your co-working space about your plans. This way, someone knows your whereabouts and can offer assistance if needed.


Work, Explore, Have Fun: Striking the Balance

Rosario understands the digital nomad lifestyle. A growing number of co-working spaces cater to remote workers, offering everything from high-speed internet and comfortable workspaces to networking events and a sense of community (I’ll cover these co-working places later!).

However, work isn’t everything! Rosario offers a varieties of ways to relax after a productive day.

Take a stroll along the scenic Paraná River, soaking in the breathtaking sunset views.

Hop on a boat and explore the captivating islands dotting the river, offering a tranquil escape from the city’s energy.
Foodies will delight in the city’s food scene, with everything from traditional Argentine asados to international cuisine tempting your taste buds.

Beyond the Workday: Unforgettable Rosario Experiences

Rosario isn’t just about co-working spaces and delicious food (although both are fantastic!). Here are some unforgettable experiences you can add to your itinerary:

  • Catch a Football Match: Immerse yourself in the electrifying energy of a Rosario Central or Newell’s Old Boys match. The passionate chants of the fans and the skilful play on the field will leave you breathless.

  • Visit the Sport Museum:  For safety reasons, I’d recommend booking the “Messi Tour” with Rosario Free Tour to explore the area.

  • Explore the Parque España: Escape the urban bustle and wander through the picturesque Parque España. Lush gardens, ornate fountains, and stunning river views make it a photographer’s paradise.
  • Lose yourself in Arts & History Museums: Rosario’s museums offer a glimpse into the city’s rich past and vibrant artistic scene. Explore the Museo Municipal de Bellas Artes Juan B. Castagnino for a dose of fine art, or jump into the fascinating history of the Museo Histórico Provincial de Rosario or the Museo de Arte Decorativo “Firma y Odilo Estevez”.
  • Weekend Getaway to Victoria: For a unique adventure, take a day trip to Victoria, a vast network of waterways and islands located 60 km north of Rosario. Explore the delta by kayak or boat, spot local wildlife, and enjoy a traditional Argentine barbecue on the banks of the river.
  • Experience the Nightlife: Rosario’s nightlife caters to all tastes. Enjoy live music at a local bar, sip cocktails on a rooftop terrace with panoramic city views, or dance the night away at a lively club.

Finding Your Perfect Oasis: Rosario’s Co-working Gems

Now, onto the nitty-gritty for remote workers: co-working spaces! But before diving in, let’s talk about what makes a great co-working space. It’s more than just a desk and Wi-Fi.

Look for a space that fosters a sense of community, offers a variety of work environments (think quiet nooks, collaborative areas, and meeting spaces), and provides access to amenities like printers and high-speed internet.

Rosario’s co-working scene is constantly evolving, offering a variety of options to suit your needs. Here are a few top picks to consider, based on my own exploration of the city:
