Costa Rica Beach Hidden Gem?

Don’t Go To Samara Beach

Costa Rica Samara BeachLocated on the Pacific Ocean side of Costa Rica, this unspoiled long white sand beach is enough to draw tourists to this beach resort town, but for many, this off the tourist trap radar map is where they come to see the spectacular coral reef…. it’s not just your typical beach town.

Located on the Nicoya Peninsula, this small town has its main road leading directly to the beach so you can’t miss it. Once on the beach, the white sand stretches for about six kilometers….with a view of the small wooded island known as Isla Chora. The water in this area is a perfect opportunity for swimming and relaxing.

As a beach town there are many restaurants, shops and bars to enjoy. With sand floors in most of these establishments and great tunes playing, including a beach front disco, you are bound to enjoy the night life.
