hello, we will be spending 4 nights in playa samara. we have 3 days/nights to adventure into hiking, forest suspension bridges, hotsprings on our minds. we are overwhelmed at all the choices and navigating distances and travel time. what do you suggest??? help! and thank you, love your website!
Thanks for using our site. From Samara you could go up to Monteverde to explore for 2-3 nights. The cloud forest is completely different than the tropical dry forest you will see in Samara. The only thing missing from your list there is hot springs. La Fortuna is another option and it has all of those things but is a little more of a drive. One other option that comes to mind is the area around Miravalles Volcano. It is much more rustic and not too developed for tourism but there are several little places with hot springs and a place called Las Hornillas that has hanging bridges and some mud baths/hot springs. We’ll be writing an article in the future about that area so make sure to subscribe to our email list. Hope this gives you some ideas.
