rugged, resplendent Costa Rica
As naturalist, author, and wildlife illustrator, I'd love to share my Costa Rican home with you. Come swim in Sylvan's waterfalls and let me guide you through over 60 hectares of rain forest. It's perfect for a day visit, or longer. For information on upcoming workshops, scroll down to Workshops and Blitzes, and click on the eye!

Tropical Sketching Workshop has some space available!
Last year's group enjoying the gardens. For more info go to Tour with us.
I really enjoyed the entire experience of the workshop! You, your staff and your facilities/ property made the experience that much more special. Glad I was able to expand on my birding skills. I look forward to a return trip to Sylvan in the future

I'm Fiona, a naturalist who's made the unspoiled Costa Rican South Pacific zone my home. I own over 60 hectares of rural rainforest, with some of the most exquisite waterfalls in the region. This is where I blog about my adventures to preserve this land, build a field station for wildlife enthusiasts, and even establish a small community to enjoy this with. Follow me and hashtag #escapetosylvan .
Sylvan is near the Osa Peninsula's beautiful surfing beaches, neighbor to the Corcovado National Park, and half an hour from Golfito airport. We're the perfect stopover for exploring the region. Walk our trails, be coached by Fiona on how to spot local wildlife, and swim in astounding waterfalls. Freshen up and enjoy a home-cooked meal before continuing on, or stay the evening in one of our rustic field station cabins. For those without transport, we can organise airport/hotel pick-ups/drop-offs.
Fiona's been leading wildlife tours all across the globe for over 30 years, even authoring a book or two on Costa Rica.
