Samara is a traditional Costa Rican beach town with international flavor. Excellent restaurants (Italian, fresh seafood, German, traditional Costa Rican, vegetarian and more). The life in Samara is easy care-free living with inexpensive and delicious fresh bakeries and fresh fruit markets within a two minute walk. Surf schools, massage school, language school, horseback riding on the beach or mountains or to waterfalls, scuba diving, and zip lines all within 5 minutes. High speed internet cafes within a two minute walk provide friendly and thorough tour guide information for trips throughout Costa Rica. Eco-tourism including river tours, tours of rain forest, and other nature tours are within an hour drive. Punta Islita, a gorgeous and tranquil ocean-front spa and resort, is also within a 45 minute drive - it is a must do activity. For those who want more than a relaxing and quite time at the beach, there is lots to do in and around Samara and enough days trips to keep everyone busy for weeks.
