What our students said about Samara

4.0

Rating: 4/5

As a woman traveling alone it was not possible to try the night life. The dogs are out of control and unpredictable. They also defend the families on the beach.

Rating: 4/5

The city in combination with the beach is great. Lots of opportunities for social life or just the beach. Overall also recommended for longer stays.

Rating: 5/5

Samara is very nice compared to San Jose: there are no barbed wires around the houses. Still it would not be wise to wander around night time.

Hannele

5.0

Rating: 5/5

The nightlife isn't that good, except for the Arriba bar. The groceries are very expensive. Apart from that Sámara is a city in paradise.

Nice little town on the beach with many souvenir shops, pubs and restaurants. Unfortunately, many of them were closed at the time.

The nice thing about Sámara is the beach, otherwise the town or village doesn't offer much. There are some excellent restaurants

Samara is a small place on a fantastic bay, with quite a lot of tourist shops and bars. It's a bit of real "Tico" life.

I liked everything about the Intercultura school. The lessons were given in small groups, by very motivated and capable teachers. You could tell that they also enjoy their work. There were also modern smartboards in the air-conditioned rooms. The atmosphere in the whole school was great!
