Playa Samara is continuously becoming more and more popular as people begin to discover what Samara has to offer. It is a stunningly beautiful place and it is not only the nature that makes it so. It is the friendly people, the mix of cultures, and the variety of activities that makes this place special. The Intercultura Spanish Language school together with tourism have clearly captivated people's attention from all over the world, bringing them and their cultures to Samara for short and long term stays. This fusion of cultures has influenced an interesting and eclectic assortment of restaurants, art and craft galleries, music, and activities while still maintaining a positive undertone of original Costa Rica culture and lifestyle. While there are plenty of new activities that tourism has brought to Samara like Yoga and Stand Up Paddle Boarding from a North American and European influence, there will always be an undying want for the traditional Costa Rican activities like surfing, river kayaking and horseback riding on the beach. Samara is the perfect place to take part in these activities because of the beautiful white sand beaches, crystal clear ocean, rushing rivers, and lush rainforest that surrounds the beach. In the dry season it's practically always hot and sunny with blue skies and rare showers. During the other half of the year, in the rainy season, there is a good combination of sunny mornings with afternoon thunderstorms.
