Today through April, Ryan and I are going to feature a new post each Saturday morning about this past winter's group trip to Costa Rica. We're going to have some fun with this and call it "Costa Rica Saturdays!"
This past winter in Costa Rica were joined by My Fishing Cape Codders Jane and Tom Simpson, Tom and Patti Dromgoole, John and Michelle Silva, Mike and Lisa Hollander, and Ryan's dad, uncle and sister.
It's not easy for me to describe Playa Zancudo, the town where Ryan and I like to call home for a few weeks each winter. Yes the beaches are beautiful, and the weather nearly perfect, but that's not everything.
You just have to see it for yourself. To meet the locals, to experience the fishing and the natural environment, and to look a scorpion in the eye and not be afraid (among other things)!
It's bit of an art to go from enjoying the "comforts of home" to immersing yourself in this Costa Rican lifestyle of bugs, scorpions, dust, intense heat and humidity. Take it from me, a girl who loves to eat brie and sip Prosecco.
