These people are beautiful. My boyfriend and I staggered into town with our enormous packs from the bus from San Jose. We were bewildered and looking for a taxi. We approached the company's shop and asked in broken Spanish where we could get a taxi. The sweetheart gal said in perfect English that she'd call us one. Then, when she... More

My husband and I booked a trip to Arenal from Playa Samara and paid a little extra since we were only a group of 2 instead of a group of 4. We had our own guide (Javier- who was fantastic) and a great driver who didn't mind stopping at places along the way to really make our trip special. We... More

Would like to thank Alex and Horhay for taking us on the most beautiful trip at 7.30 in the morning along the river to the Pacific Ocean. We so wanted to take photos, they were so courteous and careful that we were able to do just everything that we needed to do. This made our holiday very special and we... More

We had a great trip with Samara Adventure Company. Our guide, Alex, spoke excellent English and he was great with our 6-year-old daughter. We kayaked to a litte island and then snorkelled in a protected area. It was a fun afternoon!

Went last week to the island with Alex, our guide. Alex was professional and very accommodating. He is a great asset for the company. After a 20 min kayak trip to the island, snorkeled for 1.5 hours plus had a fruit snack. Saw small fish and lobster. Pictures are included and e-mailed to you. Price very reasonable.

This tour was absolutely a blast and perfect to bring my 2.5 year old! She was able to sit up and watch the dolphins and jump into the ocean for a swim! The guides and captain were wonderful, fruit and refreshments, delicious!
