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
"We're not beach people, and it was very hot, but we really ended up liking this area, and the Samara Pacific Lodge. Everybody was very friendly and laid back."
"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."
