Welcome! My name is Alejandro Delgado and I am a Remote Worker (and local) living on the beautiful island of Lanzarote (Canary Islands, Spain). The main reason I created this blog for Digital Nomads and Remote Workers is that I want to share some of Lanzarote's most exclusive places to visit and experiences to live. I will be posting about places, people, or objects, with a vivid description. I will also give my honest recommendations! I hope you enjoy your stay and enjoy reading this blog :)
So what is Pitaya Coliving?
Pitaya Coliving is an ecosystem of specialized services for remote workers in Lanzarote. A one-stop shop where remote workers and digital nomads can find everything necessary to get a 360o experience.
Pitaya is much more than just a Coliving. Pitaya is a complex social ecosystem, where the key element is the Community.
Are you a remote worker and you want to spend some time in Lanzarote working and exploring the island?
You can book accommodation with them, starting from one week. They are located in the heart of Arrecife, in El Charco de San Ginés. The coliving has six rooms, an open kitchen and living room, and a spacious and professionally equipped coworking space. The house is decorated in a bohemian style and has a warm touch that will make you feel at home instantly.
Laura, the founder is the house and community manager, and she will be there to help you make the most of your stay in Lanzarote.
For many years, Laura worked hard by helping humans connect with technology in ways previously unknown to them, but in 2018, she left that behind and packed her bag, traveling the world for a year - an experience that changed her forever. Travelling has always been her passion; being inspired by other cultures, traditions, and different ways of living.
After her year of traveling, she started to work remotely but knew something was missing - that sense of community that she had found so inspiring. Thus the idea for Pitaya Coliving was born, offering a space for those who work remotely but still want to travel and be inspired by the community around them, where different cultures can coexist and experiences are shared.
Of all the Canary Islands, Lanzarote has that nomad spirit which is at the soul of our ethos and so she decided to start this coliving adventure here.
At this point, you may be wondering, why Pitaya? Like many of the Digital Nomad community, the fruit Pitaya is not native to Lanzarote, but you can find them everywhere, and when she moved in to start this project, it was pitaya season. The plant always finds a way to make meaningful connections, and eating the fruit is an experience in itself. Just like Pitaya coliving!
And why Lanzarote?
Lanzarote is different than other sun and sea destinations. It’s an island where nature and art prevail. A place where the people are as warm as they are active and proud. Where the food tastes of the sea and the earth. Where the essence of the island leaves a mark on your soul long after you depart.
The legacy of the volcanic eruptions that took place in the 18th and 19th centuries is a spectacular scene of singular form and beauty. Next to unexpected landscapes made up of volcanic caves, lakes of lava, and craters, lie beaches of golden sand and transparent waters.
The architecture is the identity of the island, thanks to the outstanding work of the island-born artist and decorator César Manrique. He felt that architecture should vanish to be respectful towards the landscape. Gifting its local people and visitors with a scenery where white predominates on the houses and green on doors and windows.
Lanzarote is all about art, culture, and tradition, and its unique character is a dream come true for those who are looking for inspiration and optimal conditions to work remotely.
The heart and soul of Pitaya Coliving is their Community because they understand that the main value of a Coliving experience is the access to an active and well organized remote worker community,
Lanzarote is a fast-growing remote workers hub, and Pitaya Coliving is constantly creating exciting new experiences to offer you the best plans and connect you with the local community.

So as always, go have fun and explore!

Picture this, you are sunbathing on a tranquil beach, you have your favorite book on your lap, and you suddenly feel the urge to stop reading and stare in front of you. You witness a picturesque scene of a beautiful archipelago of small islands. You identify La Graciosa, and you can somewhat see Montaña Clara… where are you? You are at Playa del Risco. Playa del Risco is a 500-meter beach sheltered by the spectacular Risco de Famara (cliff of Famara). It is of the most isolated and quiet beaches on the island. A fantastic place to be on your own, with a friend or two, and even a whole family! This wonderful beach is located on the coast of Yé, sheltered by the glorious Risco de Famara. Playa del Risco is only accessible by boat, or by hiking down the trail known as the Camino de Los Gracioseros (a trail that deserves a blog post in its own right). Rest assured, the (at times difficult) trail is very well worth the effort. The panoramic view of the Archipiélago Chinijo (the small isla
Have you tasted Lanzarote’s one-of-a-kind wine yet? Whether you have already or not, I highly recommend visiting El Grifo’s Museo del Vino (Wine Museum). You’re going to love this unique experience. (P.S. This blog is not sponsored or anything like that, I only recommend what I have enjoyed myself). Museo del Vino de El Grifo (El Grifo’s wine museum) is in one of the oldest wineries in Lanzarote. Built on volcanic rock, in 1775, the building showcases Lanzarote’s pure and most traditional architecture containing thick volcanic rock walls and roofed with wooden beams, that came mostly from the scrapping of ships. By itself, the building is a place to contemplate and enjoy! The Lanzarote wine museum is located among the vineyards of the El Grifo area, on the road from the Monumento al Campesino to Uga, in the town of Masdache. It occupies the old wineries, built on the volcanic lava of the 18th-century eruption and dating from 1775. Access from the road is indicated by the monument to t
Have you ever wondered what authentic Canarian food tastes like? Perhaps you have already, but I hope it wasn't one of those massively touristic-based restaurants near the old-town of Puerto del Carmen... This is what our food looks like: This is called Queso a la Plancha (it's local fried cheese with a few potatoes and Mojo Rojo, you know what those things are by now since you have read all of my posts :) ) Introducing the Teleclub de Tao Before we go into this restaurant in particular, let's give you a brief overview of what a Teleclub is. A Teleclub is a place where there is normally a bar and restaurant area, and other rooms where different activities (such as card games) take place. There's usually a tv around, always on and showing the local news or a lucha canaria (Canary Island-style wrestling) match. Teleclubs are basically a place where you can drink good wine, eat amazing food and have a laugh with some locals. There are several on the island, I'll p
