When you come back to the rustic comfort of Villas Espavel you can dip in the shady pool, stretch in the tree top yoga space or stretch-out in a hammock on your private patio. The most important appointment of your day will be the golden hour sunset beach walk where you share “puravidas” with the rest of Samara. Villas Espavel is a thoughtfully designed set of five vacation Villas located in Playa Samara, Costa Rica. Each of the Villas includes a kitchen for cooking tasty meals, a patio to relax in jungle shade and orthopedic mattresses for a good night’s sleep.

Come join us to feel Costa Rican puravida while swaying in your hammock serenaded by the song of the jungle.
