Featured listings in the Samara area
Sitting along the southern Pacific coast of the Nicoya Peninsula in the province of Guanacaste, Samara is small sunny town with pristine beaches and picture-perfect scenery. The town is both a popular beach resort community as well as a major component to the cattle and fishing industry in Costa Rica. Samara is considered to be one of the safest beaches, making it an ideal location for family getaways and low-key travel.
The town is a four hour drive from San Jose, but you can reach it much quicker if you arrive by plane at the Liberia International Airport and then drive out two hours south-west to Samara, via the town of Nicoya. Do keep in mind though that this tiny town also has its own airstrip for small planes but the nearest domestic airport is in Nosara about 20 minutes north of Samara. A quaint little town, Samara lies at the foot of a steep hill. The main road here leads straight into town and ends at the stunning Playa Samara or Samara Beach. This beach is a great getaway if you want a quiet holiday or if you want a fun family vacation.
