Local Information

Mauser EcoHouse Artist Residency is located in the Central Pacific Coastal area of Costa Rica, a 2.5 hour drive from San Jose and 13 km (8 miles) west of Parrita. During your stay, you will learn about the property's sustainable features, and local flora and fauna by our on-site artist and Foundation Director, Heather. Our 3 acres are home to many amazing species of insects, butterflies, birds, monkeys and sloths. The jungle here is full of life! We are located within a small community in the mountains. Surrounding us is the jungle, breathtaking views, and miles of dirt roads and trails to meander, run or hike, and explore. There is a family owned restaurant, Mirador Donde Andrés with delicious food a 20 minute walk away. We promote the work and art of several local businesses, creating a socially responsible network. We have a volunteer program at the local school to teach art and an Open Air Art Walk featuring our residency’s artists in the walls of the local community.
