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

The snorkling tour we did was good and the guides were very helpful. However we were promised photos as quite a few were taken. Unfortunately despite providing our email address on a number of occasions and requesting them, they failed to deliver. A real shame.

We booked an evening sea turtle tour and a daytime mixed tour (dolphins, fishing, and snorkeling). We were helped right away and they answered all our questions. One of our family members became ill and was unable to attend the turtle tour- they helped by crediting our mixed tour the next day. What we loved about this company was that... More

Berny and Carlos were amazing tour guides and we were lucky enough to see two whales from like 30 meters as well during kayaking!! The guys recorded a lot and burnt it all for us onto a CD for free with the videos and pics! Carlos is an awesome diver and showed us interesting animals which we never would have... More

I had used Carillo Adventures last summer & thoroughly enjoyed the tours. They were professional & friendly so I decided to use them again this year. They arranged all my transportation needs & reservations. Their pricing is reasonable & the quality of service is amazing! Thanks Berny & Roberto!

We took a river kayaking trip with Carrillo Adventures today. It was mostly about bird watching a playing around a bit on the kayaks as we headed down river. The guys were timely and organized, and did a great job spotting wildlife. The whole experience went smoothly and was capped off by them spotting an alligator in the brush on... More

Great times from Playa Samara. Our guide Berny and his buddy we're excellent guides. They shared some of the history of the area, some interesting facts about some of the wildlife and really made us feel comfortable. Fresh watermelon and pineapple on the beach after our snorkel session - Fantastico!
