Samara: 19 km
Today according to the calendar is the beginning of the dry season. Unfortunately the weather god doesn’t seem to be aware about this important fact and lets the day start with a heavy rain shower. But fortunately it then stops raining and we can get to Playa Carillo still before breakfast for beachcombing and swimming.
We spend the morning at the pool and then we drive to Samara, There we buy something for lunch in a bakery. The afternoon we split between Carrillo beach and pool. A real lazy vacation day with clouded skies but dry weather.
At 4:45 p.m. we have to leave the hotel because we want to walk to Samara along the beach and arrive there still before sunset (about 5:30 p.m.). We sit down in a beach bar, enjoy Mojitos and a spectacular golden coloured afterglow.
For dinner we once gain visit Gusto Crativo Italiano. The waitress, a young girl from Zurich, Switzerland, recognizes us and greets us like old friends. Food is once again very goodand this time we can do justice to the wine, because we are here without our car. A taxi brings us home to the Hideaway (3.000 Colones / 6 $).
