the aquamarine water. Tropical plant life and living coral encompass Samara's 3-mile (5 km) coastline, and the beach is a favorite among locals, foreigners, and wealthier Ticos- forming a quintessential beach community
"This a very laid back area. Could not see spending more then a couple of days here. Surfing if you are into it..looked good. Beach was fine. Seeing the horses in town..was fun."
"Favorite restaurants: La Locanda and La Vela Latina by far!"
"Villas Kalimbas was a great recommendation for accommodation. Anyone staying there absolutely, positively must take advantage if the owner Roberto is cooking. He prepares dinners a couple of times per week. It was a gourmet meal at a very fair price considering the amazing food. "
"Try a frozen mojitos at the Ariba bar - mmm delicious! Go to Gusto Beach for sunset drinks, a chilled vibe and good music. The mixed meat grill we had at El Lagarto was one of the best meals I have ever had! We liked El Lagarto so much we ate there both nights we were in Samara."
"Loved Samara, but the snorkeling should never be a focus here; there's no good place for it here. The dolphin tour was good, zip-lining was fun and the surfing was good."
