Our breakfast offer

The eating habits of the guests have changed. Some are vegetarians, others eat meat or muesli.

Our idea as an individual hotel with restaurant is to offer five different breakfasts. Everyone has the choice. You can book breakfast for $10 p.p. with us and at and you have that choice.


Our offer has been very well received and is booked very often.

Naturlodge Samara, a tropical paradise is waiting for you!

As travel time we recommend the time between Eastern and Christmas, since here in Guanacaste there is plenty of sun and little rain during this time. Furthermore there are just few tourists and a lot of green nature and unique animals.

The team of the Hotel Costa Rica Samara is looking forward to your visit.
