    Costa Rica and Panama were ranked among the 10 most attractive countries in the first ‘Travel and Work Index’ developed by Kayak, the travel platform. The current health pandemic has promoted remote work and concepts that were not previously mentioned, such as workation, throughout the world. With this, the trend of digital nomads became more visible and attractive for those who want to travel and discover new places while working.
