What to do in Sámara?

Don't worry, our receptionists will advise you perfectly !

Sámara is a little developed seaside village where life is good and where families like to come for vacation. Far from the maddening crowd of the northern beaches, the coast is lined with coconut trees and is considered among one of the most beautiful and safest Costa Rican beaches.

A coral barrier all along the coastline breaks the waves and currents thus making it ideal for swimming and learning how to surf. For expert surfers, we have Buena Vista beach (5min), Camaronal beach and Guiones beach which are approximately 25 and 35 minutes away.

For nature lovers, discover at only 400 m by walk from the hotel, the wild Buena Vista Beach, a protected area for turtles reproduction and a fishing spot well-known by Ticos. All the team will be glad to help you plan your daily schedules if you desire so, in French, English or Spanish.
