Read Time:47 Seconds

November 19. A revolution in the way we travel is taking place in countries around the world including Mexico, Airbnb co-founder and chief strategy officer Nate Blecharczyk said Friday during an appearance at a tourism industry event in Mérida, Yucatán.

Speaking at the Tianguis Turístico – Latin America’s largest tourism industry event – Blecharczyk said the coronavirus pandemic has eliminated the need for people to work in specific places at specific times.

Tens of millions of people can now work from anywhere, travel whenever they want and stay away from home for longer, he said.

As a result, many people are living in Airbnb properties, Blecharczyk said, adding that the trend is occurring in Mexico.
Six in 10 respondents to an Airbnb survey in Mexico said they were interested in working while traveling so that they can take advantage of their free time to explore and get to know new places, Blecharczyk said.
