Pristine secluded beaches, famous for its nesting turtles
Samara is a 4 mile long, white sand beach surrounded by two exuberant forest hills. It has a superb coral reef and its own picturesque wooded island in the bay - Isla Chora. It is a beautiful and safe place for swimming and snorkeling.
The Nosara region, which includes Playa Ostional, San Juanillo, Playa Pelada, and Playa Guiones, is one of the most pristine beach spots of Costa Rica. It is great for surfing, fishing, and other fun water activities.
One of its main attractions is the Ostional National Wildlife Refuge where thousands of endangered Pacific Olive Ridley sea turtles show up every year for the “arribada” or turtle nesting.
