Developers, builders and home designers are now more focused than ever on health and wellness considerations in their home plans. The concept of wellness has garnered even more attention in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has amplified the need to take care of one's mind, body and soul, as well as the environment.

Edgar Matute Neaves, founder and CEO of Wen Living San Jose del Cabo
, a brand-new adult holistic wellness and environmentally friendly community, understood this even before the global pandemic.
“The spaces we live in affect our psychological and physiological health,” said Edgar. After extensive research, he and his team of experts created a community with the goal of helping others pursue a purposeful life. He also realized that having a community of like-minded people can have a strong influence for the greater good.
Wen Living is on the southern coast of the Baja California peninsula in Mexico, in the high-end tropical desert destination of San Jose del Cabo. Located within the private gated community of Club Campestre San Jose, the homes feature views of the Sea of Cortez and the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains. Homeownership includes access to the private Club Campestre Beach Club and greens fees to the adjacent 18-hole championship Nicklaus Design Golf Course.

Edgar noted that the recognition from the GIA program has added credibility and confidence for the home owners looking to invest in a second home in Mexico. Pre-construction sales have just begun.
