What To Expect In Your First 24 Hours In Zancudo, Costa Rica

I will always remember December 1st, 2015.

The idea of spending a month away from my job, on a beach I had never seen before, with no idea what to expect was completely new to me, and a little scary at the same time.

The picture I had in mind of napping beneath the palm trees and feeling the warm salty breeze on my skin was intoxicating.

My now husband Ryan (we were dating at the time) had been dreaming for years about escaping the winter to somewhere warm.

Of course I had already accepted the truth that wherever we went, the area would not only have to be warm and beautiful, but it would also have to have good fishing!

Anyone reading this, who like me is married to an obsessed fisherman, will understand.
