Playa Samara

(4.7/5 based on 4,800+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: adventure, beaches, spas
A beach town with just enough development to be comfortable for families accustomed to the trappings of modern life, Playa Samara has the resorts you'd expect to find in such a scenic area, but they don't hinder the relaxing atmosphere. The main gray sand beach leads out into calm waters, suitable for swimming, lazing, and games. During holidays in Playa Samara, many visitors hire a 4WD to explore the forests of the interior, including biological reserves and a whole lot of monkeys. Customize your holiday with our Costa Rica tourist route planner to create an adventure that suits you.
