"Fun, beachy, festive, people are freindly - police presence at the main beach boulevard is a little surprising, but keep things quiet I guess. WE were all about exploring the beach by this point. Restaurants were great, friendly staff. "
"We felt very safe in Samara for the three days we were here. I didn't feel that it was too touristy. Beautiful beach, nice surf. Good place to relax and hang out for a while. We did not do any tours only took a surfing lesson."

"Our experience in Samara was excellent also! The locals were great, we never felt unsafe at anytime walking around, the beach was beautiful, we also liked the fact that the area wasn't full of tourists. A local hooked us up with Jose, who took us fishing, and we kept him busy all morning. Our hotel kept our fish for us in the fridge, and we found Esmeralda, that cooked it for us nightly and had our same table reserved for us. "
