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 get in some beach time at Barrigona Beach and Playa Avellana. Get outdoors at Scuba & Snorkeling and Horseback Riding Tours. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Playa Samara: Tamarindo (Tamarindo Beach & Fishing Charters & Tours), Pura Aventura (in El Guapote) and Nosara (Nosara Beach (Playa Guiones), Nosara Refuge for Wildlife, & more). There's still lots to do: stroll through Samara Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Buena Vista, admire the sheer force of Belen Waterfall, and identify plant and animal life at Werner Sauter Biological Reserve.

To find reviews, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Playa Samara trip site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Tobias Bolanos International Airport. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
