On 5 october we did the turtle tour with the Samara Adventure Company. The guide and the driver picked us up at the hotel. From the hotel we drove to Camaronal beach, where we had a short introduction about the turtles which are laying eggs on that beach. After that we saw a turtle laying eggs in real live. It... More

We greatly enjoyed two tours with Samara Adventure Company: (1)Ocean Dolphin/Whale Tour and snorkel, and (2)Ocean Kayak & Snorkel. We'd also signed up for the Wildlife kayak tour but the river was too flooded to make the trip safe and worthwhile. Samara consulted with us prior to cancelling this tour and offered an alternative tour or a refund. The Ocean... More

Our kayaking/snorkling experience was great! The water was not as clear due to the weather and tide maybe but, still, we had an awesome time:) We enjoyed walking and looking around the island/beach area we kayaked to. Everything was gorgeous when the sun finally came through! Our your guide Alex was excellent👍

Fabric up the instructor was very informative and helpful. I have a background in snowboarding and honestly they are two different sports but he was able to help me gain the necessary skills to ride the waves. The surfing tour was 3 hours long . No rush to learn the basics, Fabricio will help you step by step to be... More

Our guide Alex was amazing. He was super knowledgeable about everything to do with snorkelling and the creatures we saw, and we always felt safe during our kayak trip. We would do this trip again in a heartbeat!

This was the second time we had used Samara Adventure Company which was booked through Brenda from Samara Infocenter. Both times we had a wonderful experience. The guide was very knowledgeable and the driver was excellent. They even stopped to see if they had any turtles shirts but they were out of our sizes. I would recommend using Samara Adventure...

The guide and boat tour was very nice..... We saw a whale and cub in the distance, got up close to a sea turtle and spotted dolphins were around us. I would have liked it a bit better if the sailor had turned the boat off sooner when we got close to dolphins. I feel we scared them away. The... More

We went on 2 trips with Samara Adventure Company- Stand Up Paddleboarding and to Playa Camaronal to see Sea Turtles lay eggs. Both trips were great and well organized, and I especially loved our Sea Turtle expedition. Our guide was very charming and knowledgable, and though it took awhile for the turtles to come out he kept us amused while... More

Great experience!! We saw lots of whales and sea turtles! And they also took us snorkeling and had fresh fruit and water/juice for snacks. They were very accommodating and dropped a few people that were sea sick off and took the rest of us back out.
