Alegría Village is a new ecological neighborhood in the hills of San Mateo, Alajuela, Costa Rica, dedicated to best practices in regenerative living and design.
Nestled on 70 hectares (170 acres) of fertile farmland, Alegria includes extensive permaculture food forests with thousands of fruit trees, edible 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 our children’s creativity and inherent brilliance and an elders’ village that integrates and celebrates our parents’ and grandparents’ wisdom.
Together we live a simple, grounded, intentional, and deeply connected lifestyle.
