GigNet, a Digital Infrastructure company with an extensive regional fiber optic broadband network from Costa Mujeres, North of Cancun, through the Hotel Zone of Tulum, announced today it has signed an agreement to provide high-speed Internet to five Selina Hotels in Cancun and the Riviera Maya including Isla Mujeres, Downtown Cancun, Cancun Hotel Zone, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum.
Selina is a unique hospitality brand operating in more than 60 destinations worldwide that combine remote work, sustainable travel, and community. From off-grid hidden gems in the middle of nature to buzzing hubs in the heart of innovative cities, Selina has changed the remote work landscape and enabled digital nomads to travel seamlessly across the globe. Selina enables the ultimate work-life balance with well-designed co-working spaces at every destination – complete with desks, high-speed WiFi, meeting rooms, and more. Selected locations also feature curated wellness programs to nourish the mind, body, and soul. For example, Selina Isla Mujeres offers a library area, a movie theater, an outdoor event area, and an IDC Scuba Instructor Certification Center - the only one in Latin America inside a hotel.
Mark Carney, OBE, and President of GigNet Mexico, stated, “We are excited about welcoming Selina Hotels to the GigNet family. I personally have fond memories from Selina Isla Mujeres, the former site of Poc-Na an original Mexico hostel, since I stayed there for a year when I first arrived in Cancun over forty years ago. Just as when I started my career in Cancun, Selina caters to a new generation of travelers seeking career and personal adventures. The difference is that now guests at all the Selina properties in the Mexican Caribbean can work, communicate, and innovate with friends and colleagues around the world seamlessly and securely.”
Mr. Carney added, “Selina recognizes that digital nomads are some of the most interesting and productive entrepreneurs and creators on the planet. The Cancun region is the perfect nomad – and permanent - destination for tomorrow’s technology and business leaders who can now travel, live, and work with the advantage of GigNet’s high-speed fiber connectivity.”
