Samara, Costa Rica

Located on the Nicoya Peninsula, Samara is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful and safest beaches in Costa Rica, with its pristine white sand and sparking turquoise water. This, combined with its tropical flora and laid back lifestyle make it an ideal paradise for some.

In the village you’ll find all the services you need.  The coast offers plenty of water activities, like sport fishing, snorkeling, and perfect swimming conditions.  Bird watching is another popular pastime.

Samara is easier than ever to access, with regional flights from Nosara, regular buses from the nearby large cities, and the newly constructed Highway 150 from Nicoya.
