We have ten Caribbean style casitas built with precious native woods that are nestled within lovely tropical gardens and the lush forest. All casitas have private bathrooms and a spacious veranda overlooking the rainforest and South Caribbean Sea. Some casitas have lofts that accommodate up to three people. All of our casitas have comfortable new mattresses, which are king, queen, full or two singles. Our guest House bungalows are smaller private rooms with a choice of a full or two single beds. The bungalows are semi-private with each sharing a bathroom with one other room. Outside, there are large verandas with hammocks overlooking the rainforest.

Samasati was amazing! It's perfect for nature lovers, tucked away in Costa Rica's rainforest with a quick 10 minute ride to the beach. The drive from the airport is long ( 4 1/2 hours approx.) but the views are worth it. The staff at Samasati are so wonderful!
