About Sámara

With it's long pale grey sandy Beach Samara has been ranked the second "Best Beach" in Central America according to the "Travellers Choice 2013"

Samara Beach is Costa Rica's hidden tropical paradise on the Pacific ocean. The shallow, clear waters offer a perfect opportunity to refresh or learn to surf. Samara also has a superb coral reef and its own picturesque and deserted wooded island in the bay. You can reach the Island by boat or Kajak or even swim if the tide is low. If you go snorkling there you can spot colorful fishes, corals and even some turtles.

Samara is not only a charming hide away, but offers a wide range of friendly and attractive hotels, restaurants, bars and discos and activities.
