Father Daughter Surf Trip
We did it all: zip-linig, waterfalling, snorkeling, exploring, hanging with the locals in their bars and restaurants, Pinto de Gallo at every breakfast (yummy), fresh filet of Corvina at every dinner caught within hours of service, beach combing, reading, sightseeing, shopping, relaxing in a safe, secure, and spotlessly clean environment. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the surfing! We surfed 12 out of thirteen mornings in varying sizes ranging from knee to 3 feet overhead. (The morning we didn't surf, we had driven down and spent the night in Dominical to explore and snorkle a coral reef without our surfboards) Of the 12 mornings we surfed, each was a two to three hour session with many times just myself, my daughter, and another friend trading sets waves and hooting. There were times when I would watch my 22 year old daughter ride a wave for 400 meters from the back and then strain my eyes to see this little ant paddling back out along the sandbars! What a wave and what an experience. How can they say that surfing is not cardio-friendly! My daughter and I were alone but we never felt that way. The house sits in the middle of a stone walled and gated, 7ish acre parcel of land covered with fruit trees and coconut palms right at the mouth (Boca) of the Barranca river. You would think that we would feel a little alone and vulnerable but to the contrary there were two gardner/maintenance men there all day (Eduardo and Alex) and Humberto walking the ground all night.
Safe as can be! As the locals say everywhere we went; "Pura Vida"
