Located near the Caribbean town of Puerto Viejo, the Samasati Resort is comfortably tucked in between the warmth of the green leaves and the shade of the tall trees. Costa Rica is one of the most biodiverse places in the world and this can truly be experienced when you are placed in that ecosystem. When you are lying on your hammock and the sounds of birds and howler monkeys in the distance are the only music to your ears, you can experience nature in its most raw form. Needless to say, the Samasati Rainforest Sanctuary is always brimming with all its flavors and colors.

Ideal for family vacations or honeymoons, the place adds a very different individualistic approach to eco tourism blended with local culture and customs.
