About

Nomads in Paradise

Orly started to organize Nomad Events back in 2019 - shortly before the Pandemic hit. In 2023, he gathered 50 Nomads, Entrepreneurs, Business owners and freelancers on the beautiful Island of Siargao.


For 2024 he joined forces with Jan, a true nomad, German by nationality, with his Homebase in Siargao, Philippines


For Filipinos, it's difficult to travel and meet people from all over the world as most Nomad Events take place in the western world, where they can’t go without a visa. So we decided, we bring the world to the Philippines! 


Get to know the nation that easily takes the top spot for most friendly people in the world!


Siargao in particular is often called "The New Bali"! So what are you waiting for?  Join us at NIP 2024 and let's have an amazing 7-day Paradise Island Adventure together!



“You cannot always control what goes on outside. But you can always control whatgoes on inside.”

Our Mission

1. Empowering Filipino Innovators:

Bridging Worlds, Building Futures - Our first mission is to open doors for Filipino entrepreneurs and professionals, who face significant travel barriers, by bringing world-class networking and business opportunities to their doorstep.

We are dedicated to hosting transformative events in the Philippines, connecting locals with international entrepreneurs and nomads. Through these gatherings, we aim to foster learning, friendships, and business innovation, providing the critical exposure and growth opportunities that Filipinos typically miss due to restrictive travel limitations.

2. Promote the Philippines as a Destination for Nomads and Entrepreneurs

We are committed to introducing international nomads and entrepreneurs to the profound kindness, openness, and entrepreneurial spirit that thrives in the Philippines. Renowned for its unique cultural dynamics where female leadership flourishes (48% of all leadership positions are occupied by women - the highest percentage in the entire world) and English proficiency is the norm, the Philippines is an ideal hub for collaboration with virtual assistants and business partners, but also to make lifelong connections.

Join us to explore and engage with a workforce known for its robust work ethic and innovation, while experiencing the Philippines as your next destination for growth and opportunity.

What do people say?

A week of learning, adventure and fun!

The Nomad Workation (now Nomads in Paradise) exceeded my expectations, providing an incredible experience. I have thoroughly enjoyed a week of learning, adventure and fun with diverse individuals and the beauty of nature. Connecting with like-minded people from Japan, Germany, Australia, the U.K., Israel, and the wonderful Filipino locals have made this journey truly special. Baybayin Hub Nomad Workation Philippines has been an amazing host, and I am eager to return and participate in this fantastic event again next year

Timea Pintye

The Nomad Workation Retreat in Siargao was simply amazing. It was a good combination of digital nomads from around the world, learning, networking and having fun together on a paradise-like island of Siargao. Life-time friendships were made and also got some new business opportunities. But what I liked the most was the fact that I could go surfing in between the scheduled activities. Will definitely come next year and recommend it to my friends.

When I got back to Japan after attending the Nomad Workation (Now Nomads in Paradise) in Siargao Island, I embraced and enjoyed the life of a Nomad Worker because I was inspired, and I gained valuable insights from speakers around the world. Akina, a good friend from Japan and one of the speakers, invited me to join, and I'm grateful for her invitation. The Nomad Workation Retreat in Siargao was an unforgettable experience, filled with learning, connecting with people from different corners of the globe, mingling with the local Filipinos, and, of course, indulging in island hopping while enjoying the serene ocean—a perfect way to unwind and relax.

It’s been a very nice experience. The 5 days of Nomad Workation (Now Nomads in Paradise) experience is truly remarkable. I was able to attend different activities and do a lot of things that I don't normally do. Here, it is possible to work and take a vacation at the same time. That is something we all wish to experience and here in Nomad Workation I could do that. And one of my favorite take away from all the things we did came from one of the keynote speakers named Timea Pintye “If you cannot defeat fear then do it scared” that made me realize that whatever is your dream or what I like to accomplish can come true.

How to create passive income Steams?

About Jan

Jan Richter is the founder and driving force behind EasyDeutsch, a platform dedicated to making German grammar accessible and easy to understand for learners around the world. Jan's journey into teaching German began unexpectedly in 2012 while traveling through Latin America. Initially helping children in Guatemala and friends in Venezuela, he discovered his passion for teaching German. Despite not being a trained teacher and having struggled with grammar himself in school, Jan committed to learning and simplifying German grammar.

In 2014, he established EasyDeutsch to provide clear, straightforward explanations of German grammar, free from the complicated jargon that often confuses learners. His unique "95% Method" focuses on the regular 95% of grammar rules, making learning more efficient and less intimidating for students.

Jan's work has reached thousands globally, with his website attracting over 320,000 visitors per month. He has authored multiple eBooks and continues to develop innovative resources to support German learners. His mission is to prove that German is not inherently difficult, just often taught in an overly complicated way.

His entire business runs on autopilot.

Wabisabi "侘び寂び" Beauty in imperfection

Nothing is, no one is perfect. That's why, the life is, we are, beautiful.

Learning from Japanese perspective of accepting and embracing imperfection and simplicity.

  1. Learning from examples from Japan. "Kintsugi" the Japanese traditional way to amend broken pottery by using gold liquid and giving new life to it. "Cherry blossoms" we love cherry blossoms but it only last for 1 or 2 weeks, but we adore it more because the full bloom is very short.
  2. Pain is the best teacher - telling my personal story about almost losing my life from snowboarding accident. I will have the pain but pain is what's keeping me reminding every moment that it is special that I am alive. I can appreciate more of smallest things in life.
  3. Working together on lasting romantic relationship is the best way for self growth. - By compromising and trying to grow for your partner and working on it together is the ultimate way for self growth. Because no one is perfect. You can never find perfect partner. YOU create your perfect relationship TOGETHER with your partner.

Anytime (Surfing), Saturday & Sunday (Tours)

The Schedule

The preliminary schedule is subject to change.

Siargao is Paradise

Why Siargao?

Nomads in Paradise will take place over 8 days in Siargao, Philippines - The surfer capital of the Philippines. All activities will take place or depart in General Luna or Catagna. You can stay anywhere on the island but we recommend you to stay in General Luna, Cloud 9 or Catagna. We highly recommend you to arrive a few days before the conference. 

NIP Island Adventures:

Surfing - Lesson

Siargao is the top surfing spot in the Philippines. International and domestic surfing competitions are held here several times per year. The water is blue, CLEAN and you will find spots for beginners up to advanced surfers. 

You can find an overview to the best spots here: https://www.surfsiargao.com/siargao-surf-spot-overview

As part of the Nomads in Paradise, we will also organize Group Surf Lessons for our participants. We will get you the best instructors and you can learn how to surf together with your fellow nomads.

The time and date(s) of the Surfing Lessons will be announced around a week ahead of the event, as it depends on the weather (swell, tides, waves).

If you book the Adventure-Ticket you already have a 60 min surfing lesson included. This also includes the surfboard. No extra cost.

Island Hopping (Full-Day Trip)

Siargao Island is famous for is pristine beaches and amazing outlying islands, lagoons, and groves. 

On the last day we will take you out to 3 paradise islands even a 4th "secret" island. Swim in the Gatorade Blue waters, sunbath at a sandbar in the middle of the ocean and have a drink on a small island with just a few coconut trees. 

Island Hopping Includes:

  • Boat
  • All Entrance, Docking & Environmental Fees
  • Freshly cooked lunch (Boodle Fight)
  • Music, Good Vibes only!

This tour is included in the Adventure-Ticket.

Magic Sunsets

Siargao has several Sunset Spots with amazing sunsets. We will set up evening meetups every night, where you can watch the sunset together with your new and old friends. 

One night we will also go to Malinao Secret beach for Sunset. It's a river delta and after the sun sets you can see fireflies in the mangroves. And if we are lucky and there is not too much light from the moon, even the water will light up for you! Plankton in the water will cause “Bioluminescence”. Every move in the water will make the water glow!

Coworking

Siargao Island has two dedicated Coworking Spaces but also many Coffee Shops, restaurants, and bars with Starlink and Fiber internet. Your ticket includes a frequently updated Nomad Guide to Siargao Island where we will list all the places that are great to work from.

Depending on the number of participants we will also partner with a few places and organize Coworking together with the other delegates and speakers of Nomads in Paradise.

Coworking day Siargao - Alter Space

Food, Drinks & Party

Food:

Siargao has a wide range of national and international restaurants. Probably more than anywhere else in the Philippines. You can easily find vegetarian food options in most restaurants, and there are several fully vegetarians and one fully vegan restaurant (with the best vegan food I had anywhere in the world!)

You will find all kinds of western food, from Spanish, Italian, French to the typical American Burger. 

But there are also restaurants featuring Japanese, Thai, Indonesian, Middle Eastern and Mexican cuisine.

We will provide you with a list of the best ones!

During the event, we will organize networking dinners in different restaurants every night.


Party & Drinks:

We are in the Philippines, and the Philippines is undoubtably a Party-Nation. There are parties going on every single night in General Luna - Monday to Sunday, nonstop!

We will meet in a bar for drinks around 8pm every night and from there we will move on to the party with everyone who is up for party on the beach.

Working

How is the Internet?


Internet in Siargao was a problem for a long time but since 2023 (at least in General Luna, where NiP will take place) the internet caught up to the world standard!

Fiber Internet

In General Luna Fiber Optic Internet with speeds of up to 300Mbps is available for business and private users. 

Starlink

Starlink is available in Siargao (and the entire Philippines) and delivers stable internet with around 50-150 Mbps islandwide.

Included in the Ticket

If you join us for Nomads in Paradise, we will provide you with an updated list of Hotels, Restaurants and Coffee Shops that have Fiber and/or Starlink Internet installed. We will also let you know if they have a generator to cover for power cuts.

Arrival

How to get to Siargao?

Recommended way: By Plane

Siargao Airport (IAO - Del Carmen) hast multiple flights per day to and from Cebu and Manila (PAL + Cebu Pacific) as well as a single daily early morning flight to and from Davao (Cebu Pacific). Flights from Cebu tend to be much cheaper than flights from Manila. 

If you book a few weeks ahead of time, you can usually see fares as low as 1.300 PHP (~26$) from Cebu and 2.500 PHP (~50$) from Manila. Small Turboprop planes operate the flights.


The other way: By Ferry

If you are really on a budget and don´t like planning ahead, you can also take a ferry from Surigao City to Dapa (Siargao) (250-500 PHP ~5-10$). There are 4 ferries per day at 4am, 6am, 1am and 3:30pm. Surigao also has a domestic airport with several daily flights to and from Cebu and Manila.


If you are in Cebu City, you can also take an overnight ferry that will arrive 3am in Surigao City. The ferry from Cebu costs from 1200 PHP. (~24$)But if you book just a few days ahead of departure it's usually around 2.000 PHP (~40$) So the ferry trip from Cebu is probably pricier than a (carry on only) flight.


Important: Adding checked luggage in the PH is cheap. Depending on the time of booking and the weight, you can add check luggage for less than 10$ (10kg) Ferries also have luggage limits, but they are all around 30kg so unless you are travelling with some sports equipment, you will be fine!

FAQ

Whats the exact venue?

The venue will be announced in the weeks leading to the event. It will be in the General Luna / Cloud 9 area.

How long should I stay?

We recommend you to stay for at least a few days after the event. There is plenty to do and see in Siargao. You can explore the island with old and new-found friends!

How do I get to Siargao Island?

You can get to Siargao Island by taking a flight from Manila, Cebu, or Davao to the Siargao Airport (IAO). From there, you can take a tricycle or van to your accommodation.

You can also take a ferry from Cebu City with a connection in Suirgao City. - You will arrive in Dapa. From there you can take a tricycle to your accommodation.

What is the climate like in Siargao?

What is your Refund-Policy?

NO REFUND. Upon final purchase of your tickets, and the organizer does not offer any money-back guarantees. You recognize and agree that you shall not be entitled to a refund. However, your ticket is transferable. If you can’t make it and found someone to join instead:

  1. Send us an email authorization letter [email protected] requesting to transfer your ticket to the person who you’d like to use it with his complete information like valid Identification Card.
  2. You can exchange it for a 60% discount voucher for next year's event.

Should the event has canceled due to fortuitous event- an event of natural or human origin that could not have been reasonably foreseen or expected and is out of the control of the persons concerned: force majeure; You can use it for the next event. This must be acknowledge upon cancelation PRIOR to the event. If you don't cancel, your ticket expires. 

When should I arrive?

We recommend you to arrive at least one week before the event starts. Most people will arrive 3-7 days ahead of registration and opening day.

Can you pick me up from the airport?

No. But your accommodation will be happy to arrange private transport for you (60-80 USD) - if that's not in your budget or you want to go the local style, simply arrive and hop on one of the shared vans going to General Luna. They wait at the airport and cost 300PHP (~7USD) and will bring you to your accomodation. They leave when they are full. IF you stay in General Luna it usually only takes 5-10 minutes for them to fill up.

Is there a ATM in Siargao?

Yes, there are ATMs all over the island. BDO and BPI have ATMs in Dapa and General Luna. There are also many independent ATMs which charge 30 Peso for local cards and 5 USD to 5% of the withdrawal amount - depending on your international card. BDO and BPI charge 250 PHP for international cards. (10.000 PHP max per withdrawal)

If you have the time (and the stop-over) we recommend you to go to HSBC in Cebu or Manila and get some cash there - no fee and 40k max per withdrawal for foreign cards - if you decline the conversion! This is the only bank in the PH without fee for international cards, and they have ATMs in Cebu and Manila only.

Can I rent a scooter / motorbike / car?

Yes, you can rent a motorbike or scooter on Siargao Island for around PHP 350 to PHP 450 per day. If you rent more than 1 week, you can also get lower daily prices. 

Rental cars start at 3000 PHP per day. If you want to get them at the airport, it's possible, but usually not worth it. As you pay at least 600 PHP delivery fee and a higher daily price as most rental companies refuse to deliver / pick up the scooter at the airport. The shared van from the airport to your accommodation in General Luna costs only 300 PHP per person.

You usually need a valid driver's license and a second governmental ID (of any country) as deposit.

Can I pay with (international) cards in Siargao?

Yes and no - Most hotels (and their restaurants) accept international cards. Restaurants not linked to a hotel and small local stores and shops will not accept cards - local or foreign. They only accept Cash and GCash (If you have a local Filipino number, you can get GCash even as a foreigner - It's the Filipino version of Venmo.)

ATMs accept international cards for cash withdrawal (for a fee).

Are there Coworking Spaces / Coffeshops to work from?

Yes, there is AlterSpace in Cloud 9. Several new Coworking Spaces are under construction at the moment. There are also plenty of coffee shops and restaurants with Fiber and/or Starlink! Check the Guide that comes with your ticket for an updated list!

Which Mobile Data Operator do you recommend?

Ditto, Smart, Globe are available in Siargao. We recommend Smart. If you have a dual sim card phone it’s always better to have a globe and smart sim because there are spots with poor and strong signal for all operators but in General Luna Smart is the best.
