We had a wonderful personal kayak tour with Alex and his colleague (my apologies but we didn't catch your name). We saw lots of birds and monkeys and felt well taken care of. Alex was extremely knowledgeable and the tour was very professionally run. I would highly recommend this company for their tours!

We took the sea kayak/snorkeling tour today. The view of Samara beach from the island was amazing. Our guide was terrific and shared a lot of local knowledge with us. We loved the tour and it was a highlight of our trip!

My wife and I did the stand up paddle board and the river kayak trips. Our guide was Eloy and he was great. I also did the snorkel swim while we were out on the island with the SUP. They emailed us a great batch of pictures from both the kayak and the SUP. They were great.

My girlfriend and I went surfing with Eloy. She was brand new to the sport and a little nervous about the lesson. He picked us up at our hotel and brought all the equipment needed. Since I am an experienced surfer, he brought along two extra boards for me to use during the lesson. He also brought fresh fruit and... More

This was a fantastic tour. Our guide was very friendly and clearly knew a lot about the flora and fauna of the reef as well as on the island we stopped at for lunch. He was constantly pointing out different wildlife and got us close-up views of many different fishes, eels, starfish, and on land, birds, lizards, and crabs. We... More

I took their Dolphin tour, Ocean kayak and snorkel tour, Standup Paddle and snorkel tour, as well as the Surfing tour. They even arranged for me to go horseback riding and zipling with other tour companies so that I just had to only pay one bill in one place, long before I got on the plane. My bill included my...

I can't speak highly enough about Aline at Samara Adventure tours. She worked with me to arranage all my transportation, tours, and complicated itineraries involving multiple people arriving from different airports on different days. She was always very kind, professional, and was NEVER pushy with sales. She always described all our options (public bus, private bus, private shuttle, taxi) and... More

We used Samara Adventure for private transportation over a 2 week period and found them to be very efficient and professional. We prearranged everything before leaving home and a schedule was provided confirming our itinerary. We used their services from Liberia to Samara, Samara to Jaco, Jaco to Monteverde, LaFortuna to San Jose. They partner with other companies which is... More
