Next, you'll head inland to the River Buena Vista on the lookout for sunbathing crocodiles along the river. The next leg of your flight takes you to the beaches of Samara and Carillo where you just may get a soaring eagles' perspective of mantas, sharks, big schools of fish and sea turtles. From Carillo you'll overfly the Isla Chora on the way to Playa Buena Vista were you'll experience the sensation of flying just over breaking waves and feel you're surfing in mid-air! Return to the Flying Crocodile Hotel while enjoying a beautiful view of the rain forests and mangroves. In the time from December to March you can often see whales playing near the shore. What to bring? You'll need a video or photo camera that you can secure at your wrist, also good idea to bring sunglasses. « less

This a great 20 min flight. You see a lot of Samara and it's beautiful surrounds and you get to experience a great way to fly. Sights include Mel Gibsons home, beach cliffs, waves up close and beaches to the North and south of Samara. The gyro copter is an amazing machine; if you like the pilot will turn off... More
