Co-living is a great option for both seasoned digital nomads and newbies who want to live and work remote. Co-living allows for a unique opportunity to walk into a built-in community, which can be useful when you plan on planting roots (even if only temporarily). And when it comes to places to do that, few match up to Costa Rica.

With its lush forests and slow pace, Costa Rica has a lot to offer — something immediately clear from Waleed Maoed’s TikTok explaining a day in the life since he moved into a Selina co-living community in La Fortuna, Costa Rica.
Maoed seems to be living every digital nomad’s dream. Starting his day with some wellness, then getting some stretches and a healthy breakfast in before heading to work in the beautifully designed co-working part of the property. While he’s working, he stops to head into town and grab a smoothie for just $1. But the real fun happens after work when it’s time for some adventure. Maoed heads to El Salto, a rope swing over a body of crisp blue water, followed by some relaxing time in the natural hot springs. Once he returns to the property, he sits by the firepit for a while before heading to the gym, and finally sets his sights on somewhere to get a tasty dinner.
It’s amazing how much productivity combined with adventure you can get all in one day. Who says you can’t mix business with pleasure? Maoed is taking advantage of a coliving company called Selina, where you can sign up to live on one of their properties around the world for a monthly fee. The company works with your budget to offer everything from shared dorm living to private suites. Membership gets you accommodations, co-working access, wellness classes, access to the online community, onsite discounts and more. Their packages also give you the option to hop in between properties, so you can have accommodations wherever you go.
Costa Rica is a great option for digital nomads as it just launched its digital nomad visa, which makes it easier than ever to live in the country for two years. If you’re not interested in living in Costa Rica in a co-living community, there are plenty of other ways to move to Costa Rica cheaply.
