Playa Samara
— 7 nights

Playa Samara

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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Nosara Beach (Playa Guiones) and Tamarindo Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Playa Samara: Pura Aventura (in El Guapote), Tamarindo (Scuba & Snorkeling, Monkey Park, & more) and Nosara (MAEL's ABSTRACT ART GALLERY, SIBU Wildlife Sanctuary, & more). There's still lots to do: stroll through Samara Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Barrigona Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Jungle Butterfly Farm, and admire all the interesting features of Kingfisher Sportfishing.

For maps, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Playa Samara sightseeing planning app .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Tobias Bolanos International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 40°C in March, and nighttime lows around 25°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
