Opening early 2023, Yoko Village will be a residential remote work utopia in the Costa Rican jungle, complete with high-end villas, private offices and edible walking trails. Jenny Southan reports
Designed for adventurous remote workers who want to work in the morning and surf in the afternoon, Yoko Village will be located in Santa Teresa, in a “nature-rich, bio-diverse property with panoramic ocean views”. Spread across 40 hectares in the hills of the Costa Rican jungle, Yoko Village aims to provide a balance between work, wellness and living.
Plans for the project include the construction of more than 40 two-, three-, and four-bedroom villas with en suite bathrooms and private decks. There will also be access to on-site communal amenities such as a tech-enabled community co-working centre, private office spaces, creative playgrounds, a yoga deck, gym, pool, restaurant, edible walking trails, communal gardens and a spiritual centre.
Yoko Village says it will “gather an array of well-travelled community members who have traded city streets for breathtaking ocean views, spectacular sunsets, natural resources, and serenity”.
It says: “The diverse environment sets the stage for digital nomads, families and entrepreneurs to plant roots in paradise where they can prioritise wellness, have access to the outdoors, and celebrate culture, all while enjoying high standards of living and meeting the professional needs of remote work.”
