The best place in Samara :)
Amazing! Exactly what I was looking for! I booked for the weekend and keep extending because everything has been so lovely I don't want to leave. Super clean, safe, and affordable and the kindest Ticos taking care of you during your stay. I can't say enough good things about Annie and Michelle. They really work to make you feel at home and it shows. I felt at ease the second I walked in :).
