Relax on a coconut palm-shaded beach to the sound of the surf, and let the Pacific Ocean breezes carry away your worries and stresses. A longtime Costa Rican summer retreat, Playa Samara is flanked by rainforests and long stretches of relatively isolated white sand beaches stretching north and south. Beachfront restaurants and fresh fish are plentiful. Spanish and yoga classes are available at Intercultura Samara Language School. Coral reefs keep the waters relatively calm for swimming, sailing, windsurfing, diving, snorkeling, sea kayaking, and learning to surf. You can also hike, bike, horseback ride, explore caves, and do rainforest canopy and zip-line tours.
A money-saving Playa Samara vacation rental villa, home, condo, or apartment is perfect for families, groups, and romantic getaways. Sip fresh fruit juices and bite into sweet mango slices on the porch overlooking the ocean, poolside, or in your private yard. Your Playa Samara vacation rental provides more privacy and private indoor and outdoor space for less money than a luxury hotel or resort room. Enjoy private pools and tropical gardens shared mostly with brilliant blue butterflies, buzzing hummingbirds, iguanas, geckos, parrots, and howler monkeys.
South of Playa Samara, Playa Carrillo has beautiful white sands and coral reef-calmed waters with fishing boats and windsurfers. Dedicated surfers brave the rough dirt road that almost vanishes during the rainy season for the big waves and many reef breaks at Playa Caletas.

Perdido Key, which means “Lost Key” in Spanish is a narrow strip of white beaches and aquamarine waters where beachcombing, fishing and sailing are ways of life not just recreation choices. A vacation rental is the best way to enjoy the tranquil, pristine beach settings on Perdido Key. Why not live like a local for a short time in a spacious beach house, amenity-loaded condominium or cozy cottage. A typical hotel room is cramped and won’t give you the large spaces to relax and enjoy your surroundings like a vacation rental. With amenities like a fully equipped kitchen, swimming pool and large screen televisions available at vacation rentals, you’ll enhance your vacation experience and comfort level.
Perdido Key’s unspoiled beaches are the island’s main attractions. Undulating wind built sand dunes are dotted with sea oats, bunch grass and beach grass. Venture to the eastern end of the island to the Gulf Islands National Seashore where swimming, snorkeling, fishing, boating, bird watching and hiking are popular pastimes. Tee time, anyone? Two exceptional golf courses are easily accessible, the Perdido Bay Golf Club, a links style course, and Lost Key, a target-style design fashioned by Arnold Palmer designated as an Audubon Signature Cooperative Sanctuary golf course. Other preferred activities on Perdido Key include dolphin watching excursions, moonlight cruises and sailing tours. Perdido Key is also known for its out-of-the-ordinary celebrations such as the New Year’s Polar Bear Dip and the Interstate Mullet Toss. For a non-stop celebration, drop by the legendary Flora-Bama Lounge on Perdido Key, a beachside oyster bar, beach bar and Gulf Coast cultural landmark.
Pensacola is located only 15 miles from Perdido Key offering a wealth of day trip options to attractions like Historic Pensacola Village, the National Museum of Naval Aviation, Pensacola Lighthouse and Museum and Fort Pickens, a fort built in 1834 and once occupied by federal troops during the Civil War.
Traveling with kids is a chore when everyone is forced into cramp quarters in a hotel room. In a spacious vacation rental like a beach house, large condominium or cottage, you’ll have all the room you need to spread out, relax, and store all of your beach toys, fishing gear, snorkel equipment and anything else needed for serious beach recreation. Better still, a fully equipped kitchen allows you to prepare money saving meals.
