The town places outdoor time firmly on the agenda, with safe swimming, an array of sporting action and a stunning coral reef all making it the perfect spot for families and those looking for a low-key vacation option in Guanacaste.

Things to do

Out and about in Samara

While there's plenty to keep you entertained in Samara, there's a lot to be said for enjoying a day trip to one of the region's sumptuous national parks. The Barra Honda National Park, a short drive from your Samara vacation rental and open in the dry season, counts extensive caves, tropical dry forest and well-maintained hiking trails among its many highlights. For those who want to stay closer to home, Playa Camaronal, 7 miles south of the beach at Samara, offers renowned surfing conditions and the chance to see 4 different species of sea turtle.

Activities

Kicking back in Samara

The star turn in this coastal hotspot is the pretty palm-lined Playa Samara, a 3-mile beach, where you can either settle into the white sand and soak up the chilled-out vibe or pick up the pace a little by taking part in activities such as horseback riding, yoga and kayaking. As days in the sun turn into nights on the town, you'll find Samara's main strip lined with everything from family-friendly dining spots to altogether-livelier nightclubs, perfect for enjoying a nightcap before heading back to relax in the comfort of your rental.

Weather

Dry season getaways in sunny Samara

Most travelers touch down in Samara in the dry season, keen to enjoy the glorious sunshine brought by the months of mid-December through April. Demand for accommodation is at its highest during this peak season so it pays to book your Samara vacation rental, and any tours, well in advance. The rest of the year is described as the wet season, though savvy travelers will look for deals in the months of June and July, when the rain showers clear and the island's tropical landscape bursts into life.

Natural features

Waterfront fun in Samara

Like to kick back? You won't have to look far to find a stretch of white sand framed by aquamarine waters here. While it's tempting to settle back with a cocktail, coral reefs found just offshore teem with marine life, presenting an idyllic backdrop for snorkeling and scuba diving. Meanwhile, a seemingly-endless procession of boats bob gently on the calm water, heading to the best sightseeing and sport fishing spots. Birdwatchers can head off on a kayaking tour around the coastline of nearby Chora Island.
