Costa Rica Highlights

Over the week of July 24 to July 31 we had the opportunity to entertain 72 people in the adventurous ecological setting of the northwest coast of Costa Rica (Guanacaste Region).  No one complained of weight gain, even with unlimited foods at each meal made from unique native Costa Rican fruits and vegetables.  The “tortilla lady” prepared handmade corn tortillas for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  The desserts were memorable and decadent.

The SCUBA diving expedition was rewarded by a visit from the bull sharks (no arms lost).  The weather was ideal (almost no rain) for the hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, surfing, rafting, tree-top cable, and boating adventures.  As expected, Mary McDougall made sure everyone showed up for their adventure each morning and our four Costa Rican naturalist guides entertained and educated these adventurers all day long.  The pre-dinner evening lecturers by Dr. John McDougall were thought provoking and inspired everyone to remain healthy so they could enjoy future McDougall Adventure trips and similar pleasures.  However, the center of attention during the entire trip was Jaysen – Mary and John’s 6 month old grandson – he stole the show.

Hope you can join us on our next adventure.  Announcements for upcoming destinations will be made soon.
