We are having difficulty deciding between Samara and Tamarindo after visiting Manuel Antonio NP. We will probably spend 4 - 5 nights at each place beginning at the end of May thru the first week in June. I heard that Tamarindo is larger than Samara. We would love to be on the beach as we enjoy swimming. Has anyone been to Playa del Carmen, Mexico? I was wondering if one of the places compares to it.
thanks for your help.
