New entity is a timely addition to eminent hospitality business in the heart of nation’s capital city

SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA, February 29, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ — Today the executives of Costa Rica Backpackers Hostel announced the addition of a remote workstation business catering to the rapidly growing digital nomad lifestyle. “Earlier this month the Harvard Business Review published a detailed article on the rise of the digital nomad culture and its need for new infrastructures and services,” said Mr. Vincent Garnier who is the owner of the renowned hospitality organization he established in San Jose in 2001. “Our patrons at the Workstation building have easy access to our hospitality accommodations there as well as right next door at Costa Rica Backpackers and Costa Rica Guesthouse,” continued Mr. Garnier, a native of France.

“Global mobility has expanded well beyond the USA which was originally the top place to travel as a digital nomad,” said Miss Alexandra Gonzalez, who is the General Manager of all three properties located only a few blocks from the Supreme Court in a secure neighborhood. “The cost-of-living index in Costa Rica is roughly half that of the USA and of many European countries, which is important to digital nomads” continued Gonzalez who began working with the business in 2012. Information on the Costa Rican Digital Nomad Visa can be obtained by visiting the official website of the local Costa Rican Embassy or Consulate in the visa seeker’s home country.

Located in the city center of San Jose near lively neighborhoods with cafes and restaurants, Costa Rica Workstation has a host of amenities for paying guests including the most notable as follows: Free high-speed wifi; free coffee, tea, and drinking water; free parking; standing desks with electrical outlets; ergonomic chairs; access to printers, copiers, and scanners; colonial-style rooms with wooden floors; and access to a tropical garden and Costa Rica Backpacker amenities such as bar, restaurant, and swimming pool. The Workstation building also has private rooms and dormitories at a budget price.

The idea of establishing a backpackers’ hostel in Latin America began in 1995 when Garnier was working at a similar business in Cairns, Australia. Stopping in Costa Rica on his way to Peru one year, Garnier realized he need not look any further. Returning to Costa Rica in 2000 after preparing for the new venture for several years in France, Garnier established Costa Rica Backpackers in 2001, which was one of the first of such operations in the entire country then.

Costa Rica’s local English language newspaper, Tico Times, published an article in late 2007 on the newly established Costa Rica Guesthouse that was an upscale expansion of the Backpackers property primarily to accommodate couples and others wanting additional privacy. The Costa Rica Workstation is the latest expansion effort in a series of others being planned by Garnier and his executives. Background information on the history of the Costa Rica Backpackers Hotel and Guesthouse can be found at the following websites, respectively: and

He has expanded operations since then to include an upscale Guesthouse and a Workstation enterprise for digital nomads and guests needing access to computer facilities. Other expansion projects are in development now.
