There is plenty to do and eat in and around Samara.

instead of typing page after page of description, please look at the following web page:


You'll have to scroll down for restaurant reviews. I mostly agree with them - except that I prefer Pizzaria El Manglar over any other Italian restaurant in town. Alas, that is just personal preference.

I want to point out that this is a home owner's web page who has written these tips, ideas, and reviews for his potential renters. I am not affiliated with him nor do I want this to be understood as an advertisement for his rental home. I simply think that he has written a very, very good summary of restaurants and activities in Samara. I can only hope that he doesn't mind...and that the OP finds what he is looking for!

What's RIU? I'm hoping to visit Playa Carillo in March, and I'm hoping to find a boutique hotel within walking distance to the beach. I like the natural Costa Rica, so really want to avoid too much development. Lodging with a seafood restaurant or two within walking distance would be perfect. Suggestions?
