The dolphin and snorkel tour with Samara Adventure Company was the highlight of our recent trip to beautiful Playa Carrillo. Alex, a very friendly driver, picked us up promptly at 8 am and took us to Playa Samara where we were greeted by David, the owner of Samara Adventure, as well as our guide, Alex, who helped us board a...

My girl friend and I have never been surfing before so we signed up for the beginners course. Our instructor, Fabricio, couldn't have been better! His instructions were very easy to follow and learn quickly, and he was also very friendly and informative about Costa Rica. Fabricio's easy going attitude made us feel comfortable and relaxed while we practiced. Both... More

We had a great trip and excursion. Our kids (7 and 8 years old) paddled with us and had a great time. Alex was a great guide and spoke excellent english. We had fresh fruit and drinks on the island off of Playa Samara - great tide pools and very hungry iguanas made the island even more interesting and fun.

David and Leslie, the young couple who run this company, are very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. We had done a tour with them three years ago and were pleased enough to use their services again, this time to learn SUP. The guide, Fabrioso (spelling?) was a really good teacher. He walked me through every step and made it seem easy.... More

They picked me up from my hotel in Monteverdi, on time, and took me four hours to my hotel in Samara.The driver didn't speak much English, but was friendly and professional nonetheless. I did a dolphin/snorkel tour with them, which was great. We were lucky enough... More

We used Samara Adventure Company to arrange transport from Monteverde to Playa Samara and from Playa Samara to San Jose. We also rented a motorbike from them while we were in Samara. They were very responsive and helpful via email prior to arrival. Our transport showed up promptly and our drivers were very friendly. They were happy to make stops... More
