It's that time again: kids are on school break, it's low tourist season and hotels have lowered their prices. That means it's time to head to the beach.
Just last week, we decided to plan a family vacation to the beach to get away from the daily grind of life and enjoy a few days of relaxation. It's the perfect time as hotels in Guanacaste are on the cheaper side due to it being rainy season and the kids are on a 2 week 'winter' break from school.
It's just a few days at the beach, a mini vacation, if you will. Four days, three nights in Samara Beach, Costa Rica. We chose Samara for a few reasons. First, Puerto Viejo right now is experiencing their high season so hotels are more expensive. Second, we literally just went to PV a few months ago. Third, it's been a while since we've been to Samara so we want to go back and see what's new. Also, with hotel prices as low as they are, it was just the perfect time to visit. The beauty of living in a country where some of the most beautiful beaches are just a few hours drive away, last minute getaways are a reality so we would be foolish not to take advantage.
We'll be staying at the Samara Pacific Lodge, a nice little hotel located a few minutes from town with a pool for the kids and breakfast included for the 3 days.
Planning this trip was so much fun, but it was also a little bit of work finding the right hotel for our family. Being a large family, not many hotels have the accommodations we need in the price range we want.
We'll be heading on vacation in about a week and there is lot of preparing that needs to be done before we leave. But it's always so much fun to prep for a vacation. We look forward to a few days on sandy shore, trying new cuisine and poolside living. #Beach life!
