Living in the US, I’ve been spoiled with internet access. I can go to any restaurant, supermarket, or store and be seamlessly connected to wifi. However when traveling outside the affluent bubble, I’ve found public wifi to be a rare delicacy. If your traveling and find yourself in a dead zone crisis, here are 5 places to find free wifi:

 

American Chains – Almost any will do. McDonald’s and Pizza Hut are everywhere and usually have free bathrooms as well!

Coffee Shops – Most cafes will accommodate the electric type, but don’t forget to buy a coffee (or a guanabana con leches)!

Hotel / Hostels – Most hostels and hotels have wifi nowadays. If you find yourself in dire need of the internet, head to the lobby!

Shopping Malls – They will either provide their own or one of the businesses inside will have it.

Internet Cafe – Pay per minute at an internet cafe. This provides great motivation to fend of that pesky procrastination.
