You’ll find many of the beach towns in Guanacaste, Costa Rica have become very popular since the opening of the Liberia International Airport (paved roads and only 90-min from Colina del Mar) - giving easy access to great beaches and crystal clear waters. You’ll discover Samara is quaint and doesn’t host big developments or large hotels, so if you are seeking a more authentic Costa Rica beach town vibe (and a huge world-class beach), you’ll love Samara!

The main draw of Samara is its 3-mile long beautiful white sand beach (rare in Costa Rica) that has an island and protective reef offshore providing calm waters and great days on the beach. The small downtown is lively and full of restaurants, pubs, provisions and boutique shops.

 And of course, there is surfing, as a matter of fact in and around Samara you’ll find some of the best and most consistent waves in CR. So bring your board or take a lesson and you’ll have a blast! Another draw is its surrounding forest and wildlife. Unlike areas to the north, thick dry tropical forest surrounds Samara and hosts incredible animals, monkey’s and birds. Colina del Mar proudly boasts the best place to see wildlife as it is perched atop a small hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean (in Spanish Colina means small hill).  

Although Samara has all the amenities of some bigger beach towns, it still has a great local vibe and small beach-town feel versus the crowded, noisy and busy larger towns along the coast. Here, the Pura Vida vibe is alive and thriving.
