Snorkling was great, but we were not taken to the private island for lunch as promised. Told that it was taken over by others?????

Our host from the Villa had booked the tour. Good information and safety rules. Friendly people and guides. They take good care of your belongings and safety and try very hard to spot dolphins and whales for you.

We were very pleased to find the Bahia office easily, and were warmly greeted. It was easy to check in, and there were some yummy breakfast treats available. We did have to drive a short distance to the entrance of Marina Ballina National Park and pay $4 to park, which I wasn't expecting. But the parking area was safe and... More

We planned to visit CR in February because everything we read said the humpback whales would be here. Days before we arrived everyone we contacted said it was the wrong time of year. We were so disappointed. Then we went out with Raymond and Captain Pineapple and spent half an hour with a mama whale and her baby - feet... More

My girlfriend and I received an impromptu recommendation from our hotel, to join Bahia Adventures for a half day of fishing. We debated going at first, but boy am I glad we booked this trip! The "office" location was very easy to get to (right outside of the entrance to Uvita beach), and is conveniently located among other small shops... More

This is a really excellent co.After an admittedly rough ride down to the peninsula for the hiking tour (the captain José did an excellent job) we enjoyed two hikes through the jungle where we saw spider and howler monkeys, two pairs of macaws, sloths, insects, a rare black man kin song bird, vultures, including one guarding her nest, and a...

Corcovado tour - excellent boat ride, saw amazing animals even the elusive tapir, delicious lunch and very welcome cooling off swim in waterfall pool. Cano Island - boat trip was a bit wild as sea/winds were up but so worth it - sharks, rays, turtles then delicious lunch a deserted beach. On both tours Reymer was our guide - unbelievably... More

The whale watching trip started out nice: crew seemed professional, knowledgable and friendly from the start. We did however feel that the we didnt get a lot of value for the 90 USD that the tour cost. Firstly, because we only saw a handful of dolphins throughout the entire trip. Secondly, when we got to 'the' snorkelling spot, we were... More

We did several tours with different tour operators when we stayed in Uvita in January. Bahia Aventuras was by far the nicest and most proffesional company. The guide was full of knowledge of all the different animals, plants and trees. He seemed really intent on giving us the best experience possible and was super helpful and nice. Focus on security...

Impeccably maintained grounds, boats, equipment. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides and captain. Our half-day snorkel trip was fairly priced. They were flexible with rebooking our party when we had a change of plans. This company is on point!
