This one bedroom condo was exactly what we imagined, yet better. It was very clean and comfortable and had a very well stocked kitchen that we used a lot. It was well organized and felt just like home with the excellent touches from the artist owner. It stayed very cool even without running the AC and the pool just outside...

About the neighborhood
It is a 5 minute walk to beautiful Samara Beach, one of the safest swimming beaches in Costa Rica. It is a sandy crescent shaped beach and is a wonderful early morning walk (or any time of the day!!). Las Palmeras overlooks a huge field (usually with grazing horses) and beyond to the ocean. " Downtown " Samara is a 12 minute walk for restaurants, shops, bars and other amenities. No need to have a car! There is also a small grocery store (Iguana Verde) and a bakery (Monkey's) approx 100 meters, and restaurants very close to our place. The public bus stop is across the street from our condo making it convenient to explore Playa Carrillo and other near-by communities.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Liberia: 75.2 mi
Car rentals available at the airport or in Samara. Best rates are booking online.

We stopped renting a car a few years ago. We pre-arrange in advance, via email, and have a taxi driver pick us up at the airport and drop us at our condo. After a long day of travelling, we appreciate the convenience of taking a taxi. Approx $120 USD + tip.
