Nestled on the coast of the Nicoya Peninsula, you will find the charming Pacific beach town of Playa Samara. Travelers who desire affordable accommodation while visiting this golden surf village, will appreciate a stay at Hotel Samara Inn. This humble hotel isn’t necessarily lavish, but it offers you clean rooms, a refreshing pool, breakfast, Wi-Fi, and parking. A fifteen-minute walk will have your happy toes in the beach sand. As you stroll to the playa, you will be greeted by friendly locals who pass by with an “hola” and a smile.

The town of Samara has a magnetism that entices many visitors into extending their vacations. This somewhat provincial area is largely made up of warm-hearted locals and a number of expats who once visited, and then, decided to stay. The crescent-shaped beach of Samara is made of soft welcoming sand that invites you to suntan, or nap under the shade of an arching palm tree. Coral reefs protect this beach allowing the surf to be relatively mild. Many who come to Playa Samara enjoy a visit to Isla Chora, where you will find turquoise water and a white sand beach. Another fan favorite is the stunning beach of Carillo.

A number of well-equipped surf schools are located along the sandy shore, and the energetic instructors will have you riding waves in no time. You can also rent boogie boards for the afternoon. Not to mention, a day or two dedicated to swimming in these warm waters will revive your spirit. Indulge in a vegan, local, or Italian meal from one of the oceanfront restaurants or bars. Nothing quite beats sitting at a beachside cafe while sipping on a coconut and wearing your swimsuit. You can also book a horseback ride to explore the neighboring hillside. And see nature at its finest on a catamaran dolphin cruise.

Hotel Samara Inn is serenely located out of the town’s center providing guests with a tranquil atmosphere to relax in. This quaint property has a picturesque horse field in front of it. A gorgeous photo of the rural side of Samara can be captured in the evenings as the wild horses gather in the field to eat. Hotel Samara Inn offers you a complimentary breakfast, well-kept pool, relatively stable Wi-Fi, and secure parking.

Each room at Hotel Samara Inn comes with air conditioning, private bath with hot shower, cable TV plus a safe. And to get your day started on the right track, you have your choice of a complimentary breakfast. Choices include a local, continental, or a pancake dish.
