Samara was originally a small and quiet fishing village, but nowadays the Samara has been visited by tourists. The reason that tourists come to the fishing village during their vacation in Costa Rica has to do with the fact that you will find several extensive white sand beaches near Samara. The island in the middle of the bay is certainly worth a visit, because here you will find a perfectly long sandy beach with shallow, calm and clear sea water.
