A Bed-and-Breakfast in the rural mountains of Costa Rica, 75 minutes from Pacific beaches and from Juan Santamaría International Airport San José. Gourmet vegetarian and vegan food includes many fruits, vegetables, and herbs grown onsite by two Goddard MFAW alumni, George Sapio & Maura Stephens. Situated outside an old-fashioned, rural canton where almost every single business is locally owned, this is a perfect place to write, paint, draw, make music, read, bird-watch, learn about tropical plants and foods, and mostly CHILL. Tranquility and healing are your primary takeaways. If you prefer more adventure, we can recommend day trips and longer excursions to coffee and chocolate farms, national parks, beaches (there are scores of great Pacific beaches not too far away), hiking trails, ziplining, surf lessons, animal rescue centers, and more. If you’re looking to relocate, we can steer you toward a community that might suit you. And if you’re a playwright looking for dramaturgy or a writer looking for editorial direction advice, professionals George and Maura are available for consultation. Openings available January-May 2023.
