What Did Chris Experience While in Playa Samara?

When Chris wasn’t in class learning how to become a boss English teacher, he recalls living stress free on the beach. He would sometimes visit local restaurants and neighboring towns including Nosara. Chris’ days in Samara consisted of strolling around the town keeping an eye open for the Pipa Fria Man in hopes of getting a nice refreshing coconut water before class. Yum!
