Looking out across the sea green lagoon surrounding Samara, you’ll see a reef breaking the outer waves and a deserted Pacific island called Isla Chora, excellent for snorkeling. Soft sand and lots of palm trees make this beach ideal for easy swimming and spectacular sunsets. You might try your hand at offshore sport fishing with an experienced captain and crew. Or take an exciting dolphin watching expedition where, during certain times of year, you may also see a migratory whale sighting. Enjoy ocean kayaking, snorkeling the reef or a trip over to Isla Chora.

Day trips are available from Samara to go on guided boat tours through Palo Verde National Park where you may see visiting Roseate Spoonbills and Herons plus the local resident Macaws, Toucans, and the Great Currasow.
