Playa Samara

The Costa Rica TEFL campus in Playa Samara is a small, cozy beach village perfect to soaking up beach life and sun in an unhurried atmosphere. It is located on the shore of an idyllic pale sand beach, fringed by coconut palms.

The shallow waters of the large half moon bay are protected by a coral reef which makes swimming a delight. Low tide produces a vast swathe of sand, providing playground for all kinds of beach games.

Samara’s main drag leads directly down to the beach which is shaded by lines of swaying palm trees. What better way to spend the day than dozing lazily in a hammock whilst being soothed by the ocean breeze. Locals preferred method of transportation is by bicycle – bikes can be rented at great prices!

Bars and restaurants featuring sand floors and fancy beach decorations invite for lounging and dining while watching the beach scenery. At night there is a choice of cocktail bars, live music, open mic nights and if you are still not tired you can dance the rest of the night away at the beautiful beachfront bar, Tabanuco and others.

On the weekends you can enjoy any number of local activities and tours including: surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, stand up paddleboard, canopy tours, nature hikes, or simply visiting the surrounding beaches. It’s not uncommon to visit 3 different beaches in a weekend!
