Reserve your vacation and work remotely for a short-term, extended time, or long-term stay at San Pancho rentals Selva Suites. Work remotely from San Pancho while on holidays and vacationing.
San Pancho Nayarit vacation rentals suffer from good internet connectivity. The most common question is whether there is good enough internet in San Francisco for someone to work remotely. To clarify, we are not referring to San Francisco, California. We are talking about rental homes in the San Francisco village in Nayarit, Mexico, also known as San Pancho to work remotely.
Covid-19 changed the way people work. Many have joined the digital nomads to work remotely. They look for a remote work lifestyle at a vacation rental home in San Pancho. This post is for remote employees, contractors, or freelancers joining the digital nomads at a San Pancho rental home. It is for people looking for a place to rent combining vacation and work. Also for people looking for short-term rental, long-term rental, or extended time off without losing contact with work.
San Pancho is a desirable place for digital nomads and remote workers. I see the question of remote work in San Pancho’s homes for rent, repeatedly in forums and Facebook messages. Social media responses are funny and sarcastic because in general, the internet in San Pancho is unstable. Here is a comprehensive list of internet connection options for working remotely in San Pancho.
Starlink (SpaceX subsidiary) Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Satelite Internet. San Pancho rental SelvaSuites is currently the only one I know that has installed Starlink, the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Satelite Internet service provided by Starlink (a Subsidiary of SpaceX) owned by Elon Musk. This is truly the most reliable and fast internet service available anywhere. It is far superior to the old satellite internet services. We are the first to have it here at our vacation rental property Selva Suites in San Pancho See our Internet speed! In repeated speed tests we typically get around 180 Mbps! not bad, huh? The 209 Mbps is one of the best speeds we have gotten.

Elsewhere in San Pancho, you can tether your laptop to your cell phone. You can also get a powerful Skyroam WiFi Hotspot. The Skyroam WiFi Hotspot is cell-service ignorant. This means that they provide data service through whichever cell service Skyroam can link best. When you position the Skyroam WiFi Hotspot close to our powerful cell-signal booster, you will get reliable fast internet service so you can work remotely. Since Skyroam is portable, you can take it into the village of San Pancho, or even to the beach and have internet access (assuming there is a cell signal). The added bonus is that Skyroam does not have any contract commitment.
Here are the other internet options you might find in San Pancho.
Landline DSL Internet access is provided by TelMex. TelMex is Mexico’s main landline phone service provider. Along with phone service, they also provide DSL internet service. In theory, they have packages that provide up to 24Mbps. In practice, however, they deliver 2 to 3 Mbps which is laughable really. Netflix needs at least 8Mbps to stream without buffering. For a business video conference with Zoom, MS Teams, Webex, or similar there can be buffering, stuttering, image pixelizations, and voice delays. In many cases, TelMex service goes down altogether varying between 2 hours and 4 days!!!
WiFiMiFi. You will see this service offering in San Pancho with some yellow signs. This is what this company does: Internet service arrives at Sayulita WiFi via antennas. Sayulita WiFi retransmits the signal to an antenna in San Pancho MiFi. In turn, it redistributes and splits this signal among the San Pancho users. As a result, signal quality is low and gets worse as more users try to use this limited supply. This means slow internet. It is good enough for email, but not enough for uploading YouTube videos, photo sharing, or video conferencing.
TelCel MiFi. They require a two-year subscription contract with Telcel to get a MiFi. Typically there is a 15Mb limit and it is quite expensive. All wireless providers, Telcel, AT&T Mexico often go down like TelMex and can vary from one hour to as many as 4 days!
HughesNet or ViaSat Satellite Internet. These options are relatively OK. The problem is that they require a two-year contract and are quite expensive. It costs $USD150 for a 25Mbps theoretical top speed. Real speed is 5 to 10 Mbps and has a 150Gb data cap limit. Also, the latency with HughesNet and ViaSat satellite internet service is very high at 50 or 60 milliseconds. It is extremely slow to do any meaningful work.
Starlink Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Satelite Internet. This is by far the best option and available here at Selva Suites. Built by genius Elon Musk this is the next generation of Satelite Internet. Starlink has currently around 2300 satellites and is growing by 60 additional satellites per week. Our holiday rental in San Pancho has it. True liberation, work remotely in the tranquil environment of San Pancho during the day. Watch the amazing sunsets and dine at exquisite restaurants. Starlink currently offers a service with no data caps. The actual current speeds vary between 50Mbps and 200 Mbps. The target is between 250Mbps and 300 Mbps. The current latency is between 18 and 25 milliseconds. This is a tremendously reliable performance that will allow for true remote work.
If your remote work involves a lot of video conference calls using Zoom, MS Teams, Webex, and so on, then you are risking having issues when the connection is slow or non-existent. If however your remote work can be controlled in terms of time, such as writing reports, creating digital material, and connecting to a system providing IT support without the need for video conference, then it would be safe to move your work to San Pancho, and using the Skyroam WiFi would be a very good option for speed, freedom, and flexibility.
