About us, the Info Center and our Mission

Hello and welcome to Samara and Carrillo, two amazing beaches and towns!

We are Brenda and Christopher and we are the Samara-Carrilo Info Center!  Well, we are more than that really.  We are the Welcome Center, Reservation Station, Tourist Information, Free Travel Planning, Booking Station.

Between the two of us we have lived in Costa Rica for over 30 years and have been to almost every part of the country and at one time or another have done almost everything. After settling down and getting married in Samara the idea struck us to develop the first and only actual Tourist Info Center in the area, and to this day we still are. Our goal and the goal of the Info Center team is to represent professional businesses while selecting the best fit for your needs and steer people clear of local scams and rip-offs while providing you honest and transparent information and service.

We are a free information center for residents and tourists in Costa Rica.  Our main services focus is helping with your transportation, tours, and accommodation needs, but we also provide free and useful resources such as bus schedules, detailed driving directions, free maps, an up-to-date events calendar, and restaurant recommendations.  

We are your one-stop contact for most anything and almost everywhere in Costa Rica and are endorsed by the Guanacaste Tourism Board, we are part of the Samara tourism board and are rated #1 on TripAdvisor!

Along with being on the tourism board, we are active community members and sponsors helping with the coral reef reforestation project, Scarlett McCaw breading/release program, turtle reserve fundraisers, fundraising for anti-shock wire protection for monkeys, the local spay and neuter clinics, fundraisers for local schools, beach volleyball, beach futbol (soccer) and surf competitions, beach cleanups plus prompting fun and cultural local events.  


We publish the Horizon Magazine and run Radio Samara all aimed at providing information and entertainment to everyone living here and visiting here. It is also an excellent way for people to stay in touch with Samara and us.


We also have several social media pages such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Tumblr to name a few.


We love our adopted country, Costa Rica so let us help you enjoy it as much as we do and please visit us in Samara.  

Please feel free to contact us with all your questions.

Our services are always 100% Free!                                                            

Travel well, have fun and we'll see you soon!
