Experience the Blue Iguana
Your Costa Rica Beach Vacation
We have changed the name of HOTEL PLAYA SAMARA to "BLUE IGUANA", to differentiate ourselves from the growing population of "something" .Playa Samara hotels and Hostels. We have also expanded our services for you, our traveler families! Enjoy the new "BLUE IGUANA"!!
Designed with an unmistakable nod to the charming style of New Orleans, our newly renovated property looks as though it was plucked right off of Bourbon Street and placed here in Samara’s tropical paradise. Our guests describe our hotel as charming and simple.. And while we certainly aren’t a luxury hotel…
…what we are is CLEAN, COMFORTABLE and AFFORDABLE.
Every room has a private bathroom with shower and fresh mattresses and sheets--plus we provide breakfast free with your HOTEL reservation (Dorms have the option to purchase breakfast separately)! After 11:00 AM, enjoy the fully equipped kitchen that you can use to prepare your own meals on a budget. Excellent WiFi too!
Our goal is to provide a traditional Costa Rican experience that is clean, safe and comfortable. We are committed to memories and relationships that last a lifetime!
And did we mention that our location is UNBEATABLE? At about 100 meters from the ocean and the center of town, even the slowest of walkers can get to the beach or the shops and restaurants, from our property, within 2 minutes.
Located on Costa Rica’s northern Pacific coast, Playa Samara is one of the area's most beautiful beaches!
It is best known for its stunning, long, white sand beach, and is one of the safest swimming beaches in Costa Rica, thanks to the protection of a large reef barrier just off the coastline.
