Program Description

Come to magical Costa Rica and be inspired and renewed! Our Eco-Conscious Artist Residency is on 1.5 acres in the beautiful Costa Rican jungle. You will be surrounded by dozens of different species of birds, butterflies, insects, flowers and plants. It is common to have toucans, Scarlett macaws, monkey's, coati's, and sloths pass through.  Our yard is filled with edible fruits and herbs. You can help yourself! We have lemongrass, mint, stevia, holy and purple basil to name a few.  There are miles of trails and dirt roads to walk around and explore with breathtaking views of the ocean and mountains. Phenomenal sunrises and sunsets and beautiful natural light all day! A delicious continental breakfast and gourmet vegetarian dinners are included 5 days a week, ingredients are either grown on site or locally and sustainably sourced. We plan outings to go to the beach, waterfalls, Manual Antonio Park, and Monkey Mangrove tour.  Instagram: @mauserfoundation
