Well at the moment we are now in Playa Samara, and well i can not work out if im happy with this place or not....
We worked our way down here from Monterverde, when we had done our tours there, we decided to move on, and to get to this place we had to get a bus to Puntarenas, where we then caught the ferry to Playa Naranjo, finally to get a bus to Nicoya!! As we had been travelling for well nearly 9 hours we thought it was best to stay in Nicoya!....... I wish we hadnt now! The people there just was not that pleased to see us there! They were extremely rude! Every so and then i would hear the words "gringo" which is a term the Costa Ricans use for americans! I mean i dont mind its just that well, we are not american we are English!!! Any way we are away from there, after scurrying to find the bus stop for Samara!! Which did not look too promising when we got to the bus we was pretty much pushed to the end of the que where we then had to carry our massive heavy rucksacks on to the bus with us!
Luckily the bus ride only lasted around a hour when it was actually supposed to be around two hours! We was glad to get off the bus! And well now here we are! The thing is we was soo hot and bothered when we got off that bus that we just did no know where to stay we could now find the places that it said in the book, so we decided on Cabinas Playa Samara! It cost us ten pound each for two nights........ and to be honest i want to spend as little amount of time in there as possible! The room itself is big and has three beds but... there is a terrible smell and it is so dark! Not only that but there are some not so friendly spiders in the toilet, so now im scared to go in there! We are hoping tonight when we go to sleep that it will not be so bad... but im not so sure!
We have decided to take the inter bus to Tamarindo, as soon as we can! Which well its a shame as the beach here does look quite nice! its just the accomodation here pretty much sucks! But hey we will see it may all change!
