Adventure, family time, and joy
Sorry this review is so late. As soon as we arrived back home, reality set in and we were back in the rat race. Storm and Amy's condo, Dominical, Amy's role as personal concierge and all of our activities made this the best vacation we've ever had with our 2 adult sons.
We arrived to a traditional home-cooked Costa Rican meal arranged by Amy. During the day, we zip-lined, surfed for the first time, rappelled down waterfalls, snorkeled with huge schools of fishes, horseback rode through jungles and the beach, and just wandered on the most beautiful beaches you could image.
In the evening, we had wonderful family time, cooking meals together, recounting our day and taking the time to share each others lives.
As an American who is used to more fully-developed surroundings, we quickly grew to love the simple life of Dominical. Although we loved our visit to Manuel Antonio National Park, we shunned the hustle and bustle of a tourist area for the natural, uncomplicated life of this surfing community.
Don't forget to visit Storm's restaurant and read his entertaining ads about his restaurant.
We visited over Thanksgiving, at the end of the rainy season. We learned to surf in the rain, but we didn't even know it was raining.
This vacation was almost magical for us. Although we are close to our 2 sons (who are in their mid 20's), the combination of adventure during the day and comfort at night allow us to really connect and enjoy each others company as adults.
When we all got together again at Christmas, none of us could imagine a better vacation. Thanks, Amy and Storm!
