Over 20 degrees in January, excellent surf, living together with digital nomads at the beach and being highly productive working off our stuff in a coworking-retreat in Tenerife.
Right now Ryanair has 23€ promo flights straight from Barcelona to Tenerife North. You will stay with us at the "Coworking in the Sun (http://www.coworkinginthesun.com/)", part of a organization who is also specialized in online-marketing and Spanish language courses.
Let's get our own stuff done and have a lot of fun with other part- and full-time digital nomads,. You can (but don't have to) attend our own mastermind- and workshop sessions which we will organize ourselves, as well as additional online-marketing, surf- and yoga-classes offered by the coworking-space.
This is a non-profit meetup and not a full-package tour provided by an operator - i.e. you have to organize transport and reservations by yourself. Once you arrive common activities and organization provided by the meetup-organizer and the coworking-space are for free.
You don't have to stay 9 days - you can extend your holiday or fly back earlier! The Coworking in the Sun is open for us from Monday to Friday.
About getting to Tenerife
Ryanair (https://www.ryanair.com/) goes directly from Barcelona El Prat (BCN) to Tenerife North (TFN) for as little as 23€ one way at the moment. An excellent alternative is Norwegian Air (http://www.norwegian.com/), which has flights for about the same price, but with a much better service. The airline is also known as "Digital Nomad Air", as they provide free wifi on board. If you fly with Vueling (http://www.vueling.com/) you pay some Euros more, but don't have to wake up so early to travel to Tenerife. If you book late, prices will raise and it might be worth checking alternative flights also to Tenerife South, which is a 70 min busride further away.
From the airport Tenerife North frequent buses go to Puerto de la Cruz for 4,60€.
If you want to travel together with me: I'll take the Ryanair flight on Jan 17 and back on Jan 25 for 46€ round trip.
About Coworking in the Sun

Coworking in the Sun (http://www.coworkinginthesun.com/)offers plenty of activities for free: a welcome breakfast, an excursion to the botanical garden, flamenco and salsa lessons or beach volleyball.

The coworking has it's own mastermind group on Facebook. You can join the group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/seointhesun/
The price for 1 week at the coworking is 65€ + 7% IVA. I negotiated a special deal for our us: if we are more than 5 people we get 50% off, so we'll pay 32,50€ + 7% IVA. So the total price for all flights (45,98€) + coworking (34,77€) is just 80,75€ in total!
About Puerto de la Cruz
Puerto de la Cruz (http://www.lonelyplanet.com/canary-islands/tenerife/puerto-de-la-cruz) is at the Atlantic Ocean in the lush Orotava Valley (http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g187481-d247419-Reviews-Orotava_Valley-Puerto_de_la_Cruz_Tenerife_Canary_Islands.html) and despite being a classic tourist-resort town a livable place with plenty of opportunities to spend the afternoons and weekends with outdoor activities. The town and surroundings are especially good for surfing, hiking and nightlife. Air temperatures in January will hover around mild 18-24°C during the day and 15°C at night.
About organizing the coliving accommodation
Accommodation is not included in the price. Let's see how many we are and if there is a demand to book a place together. We can rent a coliving-apartment provided by the coworking space for 122€ per person and week - at the moment they have space for max. 6 persons left. Alternatively we can book a flat or house via airbnb - or if you like more privacy you can book a place on your own and meet us whenever you like at the coworking or for free time activities.
About the organization of the meetup
This is a workation, which means we will combine working on our own tasks, talking about our projects and location-independent work in general as well as organizing some leisure activities together - so ideally we dedicate some 50% of the time working on our stuff and 50% socializing and enjoying the islands .
You should only join us if you have a project you are working on! - it's not a typical vacation focused on leisure activities and spending the day at the beach
We will set our goals, what we want to achieve personally during the week. In a mastermind-session will talk about our projects and give advice to each other how to improve our business or lifestyle. From 3pm on we might seize the daylight and organize activities together with other guests at the coworking - but don't feel pressured having to join us every time we do something together. Some days after having returned to Barcelona we can arrange a follow-up meeting looking back at the great time we had there!
If you have any further questions you can contact me on the meetup messenger or when it comes to reservations, payments and what to do in Tenerife also Lisa from the Coworking in the Sun: [masked]
