My wife & I had the pleasure of corresponding and meeting Brenda and Chris. Both are very knowledgeable and friendly. When our taxi driver didn’t show up, Brenda quickly organized an alternate driver. We spent about 45 minutes at the info centre chatting and getting an in depth explanation about Costa Rica and it’s colourful/friendly people. Samara is an excellent place to start your Costa Rica travels, very friendly locals and ex-pat’s. If you want a quieter stay, closer to the beach; we would recommend the Samara Inn. It is reasonably priced, great chef and staff and is a 10 minute walk to the beach. Samara Inn is about a 15 minute walk to the town centre and there is an excellent grocery store and cafe, less than 5 minutes away. We preferred being closer to the locals as opposed to the hoards of tourists. Yev & Valentyna
