Samara

So I thought I might say a word or two about the town I'm in. My guidebook said the town was one of the most beloved beaches in all of Costa Rica, that even the president had a house in the area. So, I was a little surprised when I got here. What do I mean? Here is the main street: 


Yep, that is all 3 blocks of it. It empties right onto the beach. Even on the weekend, this place is low key.  Saturday and Sunday there were definitely more people on the beach, but to say it was crowded you would have to have some serious personal space issues. Even if it is well known in Costa Rica, there is a very off-the-map feel to the place. 

Which is nice.
