It was my first trip to Costa Rica and I loved the Samara Pacific Lodge. If you like to be surrounded by gorgious nature in a quiet retreat near the ocean with warm weather, this is the place.
The 10 minutes walk to the beach is a superb dirt road along a forest with monkeys hanging out in the trees, very friendly sqirrels and beautiful exotic birds. The beach is pristine, with very few people, warm water, and next to a wild life refuge for the tortugas, where their eggs are watched until they hatch.
The village is a 10 minutes walk as well, where you can find small restaurants on the beach, ATM machine, rental cars and boat rides. I did the latest for 2 hours and was lucky enough to see 2 tortugas and 2 dolphins swimming on the side of the boat. Wales can be seen as well, but not that day.
The rooms at the hotel are clean, with air conditioning and WiFi, the restaurant is good and service is very friendly. I cannot wait to go back and discover more of the region, which is filled with other wild life refuges.
Actually, Costa Rica is the greenest country in the world when it comes to preserving nature. Enjoy !
