Samara Costa Rica is a small seaside town on the Pacific coast with a bohemian vibe. It is a popular surfing destination. The downtown area has plenty of restaurants and shops, but if you are looking for a more peaceful experience there is plenty of that as well. Great spot for a nice relaxed beach trip.
Over the years, Samara town has developed a somewhat swank facade, but it is home to a variety of restaurants, shops, bars, and grocery stores catering to all tastes and budgets. This destination is perfect for couples, families, surfers, and backpackers and because it is a favorite among Ticos, you will notice that it fills up on weekends.
Apart from small wave surfing, Samara has plenty of activities and tours to choose from. Water adventures include snorkeling, scuba diving trips with a variety of PADI authorized dive centers in town, kayaking, sport fishing, and boat excursions. A tour to Isla Chora, a tiny, deserted island that juts out of the water about a mile off the Samara coastline, is a magnificent way to spend your morning. You may kayak there or take a boat across, and have the time of your life snorkeling over a stunning coral reef filled with flitting multi-colored tropical fish and other underwater marvels.
Playa Carrillo, located about eight kilometers south of Samara, is one of the prettiest and best-kept secrets in Costa Rica. This stunning stretch of white sand beach speckled with palm trees, allows you to escape the crowds and pretend that you are shipwrecked in paradise.
