This was our
13th McDougall Adventure trip to the Guanacaste Area of
Costa Rica—a region in the northwest of this ecologically
preserved country. The Hilton Papagayo Hotel is a first
class resort, which provided exceptional McDougall food and
also offered an additional bonus of "all inclusive." This
meant all beverages (alcoholic and nonalcoholic) were
included. Although Costa Rican beaches are open to the
public, for all practical purposes, the Hilton beach is
private. The two swimming pools are large and
inviting. On the grounds of the hotel are hiking trails
where wildlife such as monkeys, birds, butterflies, and
iguanas are abundant.
The same guides we
have worked with for almost 16 years cared for our
travelers. The destinations to the parks, rainforests,
canopy tour, horseback riding, and rafting were also the
same great trips as we have been taking for years. For our
ocean adventure we used a large sailboat to see the
dolphins, turtles and to snorkel.
We plan the same
trip for January 27 to February 3, 2011; staying at the
Hilton Papagayo Hotel. Take some time to read over the
comments from our travelers and view their pictures.
This is an amazing vacation that you cannot have with anyone
else besides the McDougalls.
