Samara, Costa Rica
Samara has for a very long time, been a traditional holliday destination for Costa Rican families on vacation. Unlike many other travel destinations in Costa Rica, most of the businesses and hotels in Samara are owned and run by Costa Ricans.
Popular with swimmers and windsurfers, located on the shore of an idyllic pale sand beach in a half moon bay, and protected by a coral reef, Samara is a cozy, little beach village, perfect to soak up beach life and sun in ‘the pura vida’ atmosphere.
