About the neighbourhood
Playas (beaches) Samara and Carrillo are extraordinary. They are only a few miles apart, but they couldn't be too much more different from eachother. Samara is lively beach with water sports of all sorts and lined with all kinds of restaurants, volleyball courts, surf schools and yoga studios. Carrillo is a peacefully undeveloped beach, lined with palm trees and defined by reef tidal pools at each end. There is a vast array of restaurants (more than 40) and shops in Samara, but Carrillo has remote resorts in the hills.
Getting around
Throughout Costa Rica it is always advisable to use a 4-wheel drive vehicle, though locals often travel by foot, bus and motorcycle. That enables travellers to get around without inconvenience as well as to explore the more out of the way locations where hidden natural gems are to be found.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Liberia: 100.0 km
While guests may decide to choose San Jose, the preferred airport to reach Samara is the International airport in Liberia, Costa Rica. It is less congested, more modern, and less than half the distance away. Car rentals are usually less expensive there, as well. It is fairly direct and less than a 2-hour drive along paved roads until you reach Samara. You'll meet Melissa at her office in town and she'll lead the way up the Santo Domingo road to the curvacious 1/4 mile private road to Casa Libre. (A 4-wheel drive vehicle is recommended.)
