About Me


My name is Sibyl, I am a German chef since 1987.


When I came first in 1993 to Costa Rica, I had not the mindest idea that this country would become my new home.


4 years later on my fist trip, a friend and I traveled 3 weeks through Costa Rica and were fascinated of it's nature, beauty and the kindness of the locals.

I came back in 1997 and in this occasion, I met Jochen, a German,

who lived here in Playa Junquillal since 1979.


To make it short: we felt in love and I stayed, leaving my past, family, friends and last not least, my own restaurant in Hamburg, which I had opened together with 2 partners in 1989.
