We had an amazing day with Berny kayaking to the island between Samara and Carillo. He has a sharp eye and pointed out several sea turtles on the way. Berny knows so much about the area, it was fascinating talking to him. Great day snorkeling and his service is impeccable. Wish we had more time for a different tour with... More

I have now used Carillo Adventure Tours 3 years in a row to organize and reserve my Costa Rican adventures. Roberto & Berny and the rest of the staff are always friendly, helpful, thorough and prompt. They answer emails right away and have excellent rates. I booked 3 night hotel, whitewater rafting, zip-lining, rapelling, horseback riding, waterfall swimming, hot springs,... More

We did a river kayak tour that was peaceful and beautiful and allowed us to explore the biodiversity of the area from a unique vantage point. Our guide, Berny, was friendly and knowledgeable and did a great job pointing things out to us that we would have otherwise not noticed. And the fresh fruit served at the end was delicious!... More

I highly recommend Carrillo adventures. We were looking for something to do and they made arrangements for 10 of us to go horseback riding on their day off. They were so accommodating. We have 2 families... 1 family has 2 little ones and our family has teenagers. It was a beautiful ride thru the mountain and ended on Samara beach.... More

We used Carrillo Adventures for most of our tours while in Carrillo/Samara, as well as for our transfer to and from Liberia to our rented house. I would highly recommend using them. Reliable, informative and professional. We booked 3 tours also: Barra Honda, Dolphin /whale /fishing, and Rio Oro kayak. Reviews follow. Transfers: We weighed the cost/safety issue of renting...

Our guides Luis and Hilbert were fantastic. They are very knowledgeable, understanding and go out of their way to make sure your tour is memorable. They were our group tour guides from Liberia, Airport Costa Rica to Monteverde for four days. I will miss them.

Since I am traveling solo, I sometimes try to join a tour. I was able to join the morning kayak and snorkel tour with Carrillo. There were only two other customers so we had very personalized attention from out two guides, Bryon and Carlos. Both were very friendly, knowledgeable, and took care of us. Bryon's English is very good and... More

Finally I have some time to write about our tour. We went on a kayak tour down Rio Ora with them. Booking the tour went smooth and quick. They picked us up at our hotel (included) on time and our group was very small wich made the trip even better. We were able to stop whenever we wanted to have... More

I would definitely recommend Carrillo Adventures!

Just returned from a week in Samara with a group of 8 people. We used Carrillo Adventures for transportation to/ from airport. They were reliable, safe and great service(especially on the return trip when we needed to stop at restrooms and for food). We also went on a ocean kayaking and snorkeling trip to Isla Chlora. We met them right... More
