Question re Superstore

For bigger stores, you will have to drive to Nicoya. Even there, you will not really find "superstores."

The biggest store along those lines is MaxiBodega on the outskirts of Nicoya.

There are a few electronics/appliance stores in Nicoya - such as Casa Blanca, and a few toy stores. Sometimes, stores that sell school supplies also sell toys.

You won't really find any of that in Samara itself.

Yup, just as the previous TA people have mentioned, your best bet for those types of items is Nicoya. You can take the public bus which runs almost every hour. The buses are new, cushioned and air conditioned :)

Have fun!
