My husband and I chose several tours during our short stay in Samara. We were very pleased with every tour we booked, and can't say enough about our guides on those trips. Each one was pleasant, polite, fun, and happy to share their knowledge of interesting facts about the country, culture, geography and wildlife we experienced.

The staff was very helpful, answering questions about wildlife,beaches,conservation. They modelled good safety practices, wearing lifevests, and careful attention to snorkeling masks. We saw schools of spotted dolphins, and everyone on the boat had a... More

Very professional! Our guides Rodrigo and Luis were friendly, knowledgeable and laid back - they brought a cooler with cold drinks and snacks and allowed us to set the pace - we were not rushed in any way. We took our kids (age 10 and 11) and it was a highlight of our Costa Rica vacation for them!

100% recommend Samara Adventure Company. They provided transportation to and from our hostel. Our tour guide, Rodrigo, was a local and was extremely knowledgeable about the marine life of the area. We were lucky because me and my cousin were the only two in our group so Rodrigo was our private tour guide! With incredibly fresh pineapple, bananas, fruit juice,... More

We seen several beautiful birds, a monkey and a Coatis. Our hike included a... More

Love love the guides and the office staff. We did 3 tours with Samara Beach. The kayak snorkel tour (great guides) was a short kayak and not a lot to see in the water, but neat if you just want to do a bit of kayaking and paddle around. The wildlife kayak tour on the Rio Oro was spectacular. Lots... More

I really enjoyed this tour. Driver and guide arrived right on time for pick up and Bernie began the interesting history of the nature reserve enroute. Bernie was very knowledgeable and friendly. We learned a lot about history, wildlife, trees, plants and medicinal uses. Delicious fresh fruit and drinks were served and we viewed some spectacular vistas, birds and butterflies.
