Itinerary Suggestions

2 females will be traveling to Playa Hermosa for a week in early November. We're flying in/out of Liberia. We'd like to spend another 3 or 4 days at the end of our trip but don't know where. Any suggestions for someplace with a local feel, nice beach that wouldn't be too terribly far from Playa Hermosa or Liberia. I heard Samara was good. Any comments or suggestions? We'll be using a tour company highly recommended who I've already been in touch with for transportation and a few tours; don't want to tackle the driving issue. Thank you in advance for any suggestions!

Tamarindo is much closer to Liberia than Samara. Here are some links with beach photos and a feel for the town.

Playa Hermosa- pretty quiet, nice beach

I'd head to some action next like Tamarindo an hour away -good restaurants-surfing-shopping-activities

Or real close like 10 minutes- Playa Coco- good bars-souvenier shopping-bad beach
