This is something we hear ALL the time when people ask us what our jobs are. I get this a lot more than Yeison since he grew up in Costa Rica and people are always surprised at how I managed to move to Costa Rica at 23 and work as a digital nomad the nearly 5 years I’ve been here.
Costa Rica is actually a fairly popular country in Latin America for digital nomads. Though it’s still not as cheap or efficient as many Asian cities like Chiang Mai in Thailand, if you love Central America and tropical weather, Costa Rica is a top choice for you.

Here is our guide to being a digital nomad in Costa Rica so you can decide for yourself if you want to experience digital nomad life in one of the happiest countries in the world.
