Bambula Samara offers two very spacious independent apartments and two separate cabinas on the edge of a tropical forest. Amazing location, just on the cusp of town but with the feeling of being miles away.

I stayed here in the bottom of the Toucan Apartment for 6 nights during high season in a two bedroom apartment so I could have a kitchen. The kitchen utensils need upgrading in that the frying pans all have knife cuts in the bottom through the Teflon type material, the knifes were so dull they barely worked and without a...

Pierre is a really nice guy. He made us feel welcome and offered help and recommendations around town. He knows a lot of locals and is a good guy to stay with if you’re trying to get to know the town and it’s people. He can even get you fish directly from the fisherman if you’re interested.
