About the neighbourhood
Just on the edge of the quaint town of Samara. Walking distance to all that Samara has to offer: shops, restaurants, bank, gym, grocery stores, and of course, the beautiful beach. Just across from the bus stop, and less than 10 minute drive to the tranquil Playa Carrillo. At Bambula, you have all the convenience of being right in town, as well as the peaceful relaxation of being far away from everything. Samara and the surrounding beaches are still relatively unknown and secluded secret spots in Costa Rica, many guests fall in love with the place and can't wait to return.
