"One of the safest and prettiest beaches in the country is Playa Samara..."
Lonely Planet - Destination Costa Rica: Off the Beaten Track

"Playa Samara is the perfect long white sand beach with shallow, gentle waters."
The Key to Costa Rica

Samara has a superb coral reef and its own picturesque wooded island in the bay ~ Isla Chora. It's popular with swimmers and windsurfers, and it's an ideal beach for your kids.

Samara is not only a charming beach resort, with a wide choice of friendly and attractive hotels, restaurants, bars and discos, but, unlike other Pacific Ocean resorts, it is also a thriving fishing and farming community.

There are cowboys and cattle drives, fishing boats returning at sunset, exotic fruit harvests, specialty and organic farming, tree  nurseries and reforestation projects and many other authentic and vital Sámara activities. There are unusual plant and animal species, ancient Indian sites, underwater caves and coastal and mountain nature trails.

Guitar, Spanish, aerobic and dancing lessons and massages are available. And there is even a Sámara art gallery with its own resident artist.
