Coming to CR end of Jan, beginning of Feb.
Plan to spend bulk of our time on or near the coast in Guanacaste. In an earlier exchange we were directed to Samara as the bay is well protected and great with our boys 6 & 8.
Seems as though the best place to stay in Samara that is on the beach (Hotel Fenix) is booked up.
We are looking for other options. What about other towns, or beaches that are similar.
Looking for easy beach access from hotel / rental. Could be a short walk to beach. Smaller town, but not too small. And a good beach to relax, and play in the water. Maybe try our hand at surfing.
Maybe feedback on Playa Flamingo, or Playa Carillo.
Or a decent place to stay that is close to the beach in Samara.
Thanks in advance!
