Samara is a laid back village with an authentic Tico feel and is a popular destination among both Tico's and tourists. A variety of shops, services, restaurants and bars are within walking distance along the mainstreet of Samara. A 5 minute walk from the entrance of Samara will put you on the beach. Because Samara Beach is protected by a reef, the surf is gentle and safe for children. There are many local activities available, with several adventure companies offering various tours and activities. Several other beautiful beaches are with 10 minutes to 1/2 hour drive from Samara; Playa Carrillo to the south and Playas Buenavista and Barrigona to the North.
Year Purchased: 2014
About: We are a family of five, living in Toronto, Canada. My husband and I (Hugo and Melanie) have 3 kids, a boy and two girls (ages 10, 6 and 3 at time of purchase). We had rented a house in neighboring Carrillo in 2013 and fell in love with the area. After doing some research on Costa Rica and specifically the Samara region, we decided this was where we want our eventual home to be.
Why Sámara, Costa Rica:
We were drawn to this property for many reasons. The location is private and natural with plenty of space for growing flowers and fruit trees. A multitude of wildlife is practically at our doorstep. We are close enough to the highway and town that getting about is easy. There's convenient access to many shops, restaurants and services - and the beach! - just 2.5 km/1.5mi away - accessible with a short drive, by public transit or even walking if so inclined.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
At Casita Amarilla you will have privacy and solitude, yet it is only a 5 minute drive into the village of Samara. Our property backs on to the Werner Sauter Biological Reserve, literally right outside the back door. Howler monkeys are frequent visitors in the trees right behind the house, along with the occasional coati (pizotes), iguanas, and many types of birds.
