Route map for Guanacaste Beach Break (TCRGBN)

Day 1 San José (D)

Morning transfer from San José to Playa Sámara. San José departure between 7-7:30am, depending on pickup location. Enjoy your peaceful getaway from it all for the next 3 nights.

If you want more time in San José or more time at the beach, you can organize pre- or post-accommodation at the time of booking. Just specify if you want your extra nights in SJ or at the beach and we can help you customize your trip to your liking!

Days 2-3 Sámara (2B)

Located on the coast of the Nicoya peninsula, Sámara is a cozy little beach village. Sámara is home to a long white-sand beach with shallow, calm waters perfect for swimming and is still a thriving fishing and farming community. Here you can fill your day with as much or as little as you like. Start off with an early yoga class or sleep in before setting off to explore nearby beaches in search of a perfect, tranquil spot for a day of relaxing along the beautiful Pacific coast. Carrillo beach is approximately 4 km from Playa Sámara, head there for a visit if you're looking for an even more calm and relaxed vibe.

For those who prefer to stay active, try your hand at surfing, fishing, snorkelling or horseback riding along the beach. There is also a zip-line adventure tour through the tropical forest if you're looking to get a close-up view of monkeys, iguanas, and various other wildlife. If you’d like to strengthen some of the Spanish skills you’ve picked up during your time in Costa Rica, try out some classes at the local Spanish school. At night, enjoy a delicious seafood dinner at one of the beachside restaurants or sip a cocktail as you watch the town come alive.

Day 4 San José (B)

Afternoon transfer to San José, arriving before 9pm. If you want extra nights in either San José or on the beach, we can add time to your Beach Break with pre- or post-accommodation.
