While I travel in Guanacaste, where I’m enjoying my Costa Rica surfing trip, I realize that I’ve been to a lot of amazing places. It’s great to have been in wonderful beaches such as Tamarindo, Potrero and Conchal, dry forests in Santa Rosa, a row of volcanic peaks starting at Rincon de la Vieja and extending all the way to Arenal, and the breath taking cloud forest in Monteverde, just to name a few of those cool places.
After all that Costa Rica adventure, I traveled down to the Nicoya Peninsula, looking for more places to surf and have fun. My friends recommended the beaches in the lower Pacific coast of Guanacaste, because most of them are isolated, remote places, with spectacular beauty and great waves.
So here I am in the southern Peninsula, and my first destination was Samara Beach. An easy place to get to, it is located 20 miles from Nicoya, and you can get there using the paved road, or take a plane from Liberia or Alajuela and land in the Samara landing strip.
Samara is a town with one of the most beautiful beaches in Guanacaste. It offers a great surfing experience, and it’s perfect for water sports such as snorkeling, deep sea fishing and a great scuba diving tour that I took. I enjoyed watching all the sea life right in front of my eyes. Horseback riding is also very popular in Samara.
If you are looking to rest, or just having a great Costa Rica family trip, Samara is a great place to start. The shoreline is over 3 miles long, and besides the clear sand and pristine water, there is a great variety of wildlife that you can appreciate: Exotic plants, animals and magnificent coral reef. Some nature reserves such as DiriÃ¡ are close to Samara, and if you look for services and accommodation, you will find almost everything in Samara: great Costa Rica hotels, super markets, banks and restaurants awaits for you. I recommend visiting Samara on your next Costa Rica vacation trip.
