Alegría Village is a new ecological community in the hills of San Mateo, Alajuela, Costa Rica, dedicated to best practices in regenerative living and design.

Nestled on 170 acres of fertile farmland, the neighborhood includes food forests with thousands of fruit trees, diverse community gardens, abundant springs and creeks that supply our water, and hiking and biking trails for exploring our natural surroundings.

Each neighbor has their own space - their own private land and home - and we all share a community center, pool & hot tub, yoga & meditation shala, multi-purpose arts space, coworking hub, permaculture farm, and sacred spaces tucked throughout the property. Our community also supports a school that nurtures the creativity and inherent brilliance of our children, and an elders’ village that integrates and celebrates the wisdom of our parents and grandparents.


If you'd like to learn more please send us a note - we are growing and accepting new neighbors in our community!
