Playa Samara has been a popular destination for national and international tourists, but at the same time it hasn´t experienced an intense development. It is still a relaxing golden sandy beach.  

During rainy season, this beach is visited by some amazing (and big) foreigners, the Hunchback and Grey Whales. From the shore you may observe the water splashes that these incredible animals make, as well as their fins. 

There is a coral reef of great beauty and enriched with marine life ideal for snorkeling. This 4 km beach, shaped as a bay, is accompanied by dense tropical dry forest. Another of its natural attractions is a mangrove ecosystem 

An enormous tree (Matapalo Tree) is standing in the middle section of the beach, one beautifully old specimen to photograph. At the south section there is a rocky peak called Punta Indio, in front of this you can observe the Isla Chora (Chora Island)

Playa Samara offers archeological sites as well as submarine caverns and mountain trails to walk.

This beach has high standards in security and in protecting its natural resources therefore the community has earned the national certification called “Bandera Azul Ecológica”.
