    One of our pleasures is to enjoy a special meal with family and friends. When you combine the fabulous food prepared by Sibylle, with the atmosphere and view, Casa Pelicano is truly the place to enjoy such a meal. We have dined here several times, always choosing different options from her extensive menu and have thoroughly enjoyed each experience. Lori and a few friends recently attended Sibylle's cooking class and had so much fun while picking up some "new cooking tips" and creating a delicious Gazpacho and Paella, not to mention the desert. They were all appreciative of Sibylle's willingness to share some of her vast knowledge and skill as well as a few cooking "secrets"! No hesitation in returning to Casa Pelicano.

    We spent a wonderful week in Casas Pelicano in the house "Casita tigrillo".
    The house is rustically furnished with everything you need for a pleasant holiday.
    Especially nice is the terrace overlooking a beautiful garden and the sea. Wifi is also available and works even on the terrace, so you can plan excursions lying down comfortably in the hammock or simply get in touch with friends at home.
    Especially we enjoyed the regular morning walk on the beach accompanied by the two good-natured dogs of the owners. The pool at the resort is small but perfectly integrated into the landscape, surrounded by palms, giant cacti and other tropical plants. A wonderful view over the sea is also ensured.
    Those who doesn't like to cook by themselves can try Sybille's cookery. We enjoyed each evening for dinner fresh meals, one can say gourmet dishes.
    The highlight of this holiday was the exit for deep sea fishing with Ovidiu. As soon as we were out on the high sea, we were already surrounded by dolphins and turtles. We had on the hook two large Sail fishes . They were smarter like us. It was enough for one or two jumps and the beautiful fishes were gone. But a great success was the fishing in deep water. It took less than 10 minutes and we catched 3 various fishes Later we found a swarm of Dorado fishes, better known as "Mahi Mahi". It was a great feeling of happiness to see these beautiful yellow-blue colored fishes jumping out of the water.

    We will come back again.

    Wir hatten einen tollen Tag mit Sybille in der Kochschule. Sybille ist eine super Köchin, die uns alles über das Costa Ricanische Essen erklärt und beigebracht hat. Das Menü was wir gekocht haben war das beste Essen unseres gesamten Aufenthalts in Costa Rica.
    Die Atmosphäre bei Sybille in der Kochschule war sehr entspannt, angenehm und familiär. Beim Essen haben wir die tolle Aussicht genossen.

    While driving I saw the cooking school sign. OMG !! We have to attend this. So My friends Lori and Kim went. Sibylle was easy to work with and extremely experienced. We made an authenticate Costa Rica meal. Appetizer, salad, entree, and dessert. We cooked it all, ate it on the patio. The most gorgeous view I saw in Costa Rica was right in Sibylles yard, just breath taking. It was like a picture post card. Over all I would rate it a 5 star experience but understand it is all rustic. I would definitely return for another cooking class next visit. Thank you, Sibylle for a wonderful memory.

    Andy and I are visiting Costa Rica for our 10 year anniversary. When we asked experienced friends and locals about the Pelicano Cooking School, we were highly encouraged to attend. We consulted with Sybil to create our own custom menu as I have gluten and dairy sensitivities. The class was relaxed, fun and informative. We learned much about Costa Rican food and culture. The food we prepared was wonderful. Enjoying it with good conversation overlooking the ocean was even better! We are already planning a dinner to share our new recipes with family and friends. Thank you, Sybil and Jochan for your wonderful hospitality!

    We spent four nights at Casas Pelicano in December 2014 as part of our honeymoon trip. As Sibylle prepared a wonderful dinner for us on our first night, we decided to take a cooking class with her. We discussed together what we would like to prepare: in our case, we wanted to cook with seafood and ended up preparing two small entries, followed by a main course and a dessert. During our cooking class, we benefited from her tremendous cooking experience and she also gave us insights into regional products and recipes. The food tasted delicious and afterwards we received all the recipes. For sure, we will try to cook the menu again at home!
    Thank you very much!
