          Great experience
          Costa Rica is spectacular. We were fortunate to be able to kayak on a river that had an abundance of birds, fauna and numerous types of trees. Our guide, Marlong, did a wonderful job of pointing out the different varieties and their special features which helped them survive. We kayaked at a leisurely pace and took a break at a turtle nesting area. This was not the season for nesting, but we could appreciate the conservationist who come each year to protect the nests.

          Fun trip to Isla Chora!
          We kayaked to Ilsa Choro in the bay of Samara on a beautiful day with clear skies but some wind and slightly rough swells. We swam and snorkeled off the island for about an hour before wandering around the island a little while to see large iguanas. The crew served up a lovely snack of fresh pineapple and watermelon before we kayaked back to the mainland. The staff were very friendly, fun and professional. They were also well-informed and competent, so that some of the kayakers with less experience felt more confident. If I had more time, I would definitely go on another tour with them, probably the sunset boat cruise.

          Amazing horse ride !
          Book with Maria was so easy and fast to work with to set up this great horse riding trip . I was so thankful to be with the guide Rene Sanchez of Horses Paradise - he takes good care of his horses and was a responsible /safety first guide . He provided lots of information about the jungle plants and animals. Loved every minute of the ride.

          Family Kayak Trip
          The guides were outstanding! So nice and helpful! They had advice on paddling with the wind (it was windy that day), good areas to focus or our snorkeling as well as must-see things on the island. Great experience!!!

          In the know!
          Maria is like having your own personal concierge - she is the go-to if you're traveling to Costa Rica, particularly Guanacaste! She is bilingual, she knows everyone, and is very helpful. I initially used her services to arrange transportation, but quickly realized she handles so much more. She is a great person to know!

          The trip was wonderful. Francisco picked us up and was a great guide. Everything we needed was included plus a nice display of fruit and juices. I would definitely recommend this adventure.

          Maria to the rescue! Shuttle service
          Maria was super helpful in getting us last minute transport from Liberia airport! We had an issue with our car rental and when we called Maria, we had a shuttle for us to Samara Within 10 minutes! It was also much cheaper than what the car rental office had found for us! The driver was super nice, we were even able to stop in Nicoya to do some grocery shopping and grab a bite to eat. It was a wonderful start to our vacation!

          Amazing Turtle nesting experience
          Our family of 4 had the opportunity to do the turtle nesting tour. This tour is at night (7pm) because that is when the turtles go on the beach to nest (or super early, which didn’t work for us). The tour was amazing! It was just us and our guide, Luis. He was very knowledgeable and answered ALL our questions. Being a small group allowed us to get very close to the turtle. We were super lucky because we immediately got to see a turtle nesting, lay her eggs and then walk back to the sea. It was definitely magical!

          Snorkeling in Sámara
          We had a fun morning kayaking and snorkeling on Chora Island. Our guides were friendly and fun. They explained clearly how to use all equipment. The tour was fine even for inexperienced kayakers and snorkelers like us.

          Amazing snorkeling and kayaking
          Loved my experience kayaking and snorkeling. Locals that really know the area and give you a great time and information you won’t find anywhere else. If you are debating who you should book an excursion with you absolutely should book here.

          Unique andEnjoyable experience: Let’s Get Local Tour
          We did the Let’s Get Local tour, and it was such a great cultural experience! Luis was a wonderful guide and we learned a lot about Costa Rica. We visited a beautiful waterfall and spent a little time there relaxing. The lunch with a local family on their farm was so delicious and with an amazing view!! They made such great food!!! And there was plenty of it! Learning about how the coffee is harvested and produced the old way and the new way was very educational. The coffee brewed in the Vandola was soooo good! And we loved making tortillas! Overall this was one of the most enjoyable experiences of our trip! If you are in Samara or Carillo then it is worth arranging this tour!

        Maria from Blue Zone was amazing in setting up our dolphin/snorkeling tour for my son’s birthday!
        She arranged all pick up/drop off times and locations.
        She also has been wonderful in helping to arrange shuttle service to and from SJO airport.

        Once you have Maria as a contact, make sure you save her number because she is a resource you want to keep handy for all things CR/Samara related.

        We locked our keys in our car last week and she set us up with the local mechanic as soon as she found out and he was able to get us back into our car within 10 minutes of arriving!

        Thank you for always being so helpful Maria!!

        This review is a bit overdue but I went to Samara Beach January 4-7th and I was looking for Scuba diving/Snorkeling activity to do and found this with Blue Zone(Booking with Marie) and it was very nice activity! There was a hiccup where the pick up communication was a little off and out of Marie's control but she helped out with the situation and booked for sunset snorkeling which was good even though I went solo with couples and other travelers . It was really cool seeing all of the colorful fishes down there while snorkeling and seeing the sunset. I highly recommend booking with Marie for activities if you're in Samara Beach area.....very nice person!

        Such a fantastic experience! Our guides were punctual and extremely knowledgeable. The boat was very clean and well equipped.
        We were a group of 13 people, ranging in ages 4-64.
        Spotted dolphins were found within a short while and we had a chance to snorkel near the end of the trip.
        I highly recommend this excursion.
        Booking with Maria was very easy using WhatsApp the week before.

        We had a wonderful time and the tour exceeded our expectations!! Can't believe how many dolphins we saw!! Over 20 at a time swimming around our Katamaran and jumping. Turtles too! The boat had enough shade even for our 6 month old baby and the refreshing drinks and fruit were perfect too. Thanks again!!

        We had no idea the dolphins jump 10 feet in the air. Also saw humpback whales, manta ray, spotted Eagle rays and turtles. Captain Marco knew exactly where to go. Tour guide Francisco was awesome. Knew his sea life and made it interesting. Had a great time!

        I didn’t end up doing an activity but I inquired into several and BWM was so very patient, answering every question and even making suggestions.
        Not many in customer service are so patient for more than a question or two maximum so I feel Book with Maria went above and beyond!
        Others I know booked through this company and recommended them highly and I can see why.
        Thank you!

        We stayed in Samara for a week and were able to find an affordable and quick tour to watch dolphins with Book with Maria. Maria communicated with us exactly what we needed to bring, when to be ready and other important information in the best way possible. We all had a great time. Highly recommend!

        There is no doubt that Book with Maria is the best place in town to get great advice and exceptional service. She is simply incredible! She hooked us up with Luis, a local guide that took us on a nature tour to see the beautiful birds of Costa Rica. We had so much fun that we did another tour with Luis to see a local coffee factory and then drove up high overlooking Playa Bejuco to have lunch with a family. Five different times we've been to Costa Rica and this was probably the best day we ever had. Auxi and her family treated us to an incredible meal in their home where we made tortillas and drank fresh ground and brewed coffee. There is no need to research where to go or what to do when you are in Samara. Get in touch with Maria and have her hook you up with Luis and your day will be perfect. Maria also arranged our COVID test so we could get back to the States.
