Best beach to stay at?

Hi there. I am planning on visiting guanacate prov in feb and looking to get people's opinion on where the best beach town is to stay at. We are ideally looking for a place where we can spend most of the day doing some type of activities like : snorkelling,kayaking, hiking, learning to surf(maybe). And also a place to enjoy the beach as well. Not looking for any crazy night life but more relaxed undeveloped places that are safe to walk around. From what I have seen I seem to be leaning towards samara but would love your opinions.

Thanks in advance

From you requirements, I'd say you're better off looking at Playa Grande or Brasilito rather than Tamarindo.

Hi Louise- we stayed in Tamarindo in Dec 2012 and loved it. We hope to go back for longer in January 2014 but anticipate higher crowds in Jan than December and are tempted to explore other areas nearby. Looks like you were there in January? Curious what makes you say Tamarindo is by far the best?

Thanks in advance.
