By far these guys have been the best in all of our travels! In our party of people, we had some experience divers. One of our adult children had never been before and felt she was in a salt water aquarium. The other couple who have been everywhere, said it was the best they have seen. It was so amazing... More

I went with Bahia Aventuras on a tour to Corcovado National Park. The scenery was amazing during the boat rides and we saw large groups of dolphins which would swim under and in front of the boat. Our tour guide Reymer was excellent - he asked what we wanted to see and tailored the trip around us. There was a... More

We (My husband, our 3 adult children, and I) took the combo tour to see dolphins and go snorkeling. What a great experience. We walked to the beach from the office. Along the way our guide (Cesar) enthusiastically shared his knowledge of the plants and animals we passed along the way. The boating experience was equally informative. Cesar's knowledge seemed...

We (family with two boys, ages 10 and 12) did both the Corcovado trip and the Cano Island snorkeling tour. Like some other reviewers, we found the boat ride to each destination challenging, but I'm not sure there's a better way to access these remote locations. We did see dolphins, flying fish and turtles on the way, but most of... More

Thank you for your wonderful service, professionalism and courtesy. During the month of March, I travelled to Costa Rica with 2colleagues and 25 students and we had an amazing time on the excursions with your staff members. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed and felt right at home. On the first day, we went to Corcovado. Your guides... More

Very good Snorkeling - Reef Sharks, Parrot Fish, Angel Fish, Box and Spotted Puffer fish, One Eyed Jack fish schools, Trigger fish, and many more. The trip out was filled with a dozen sea turtle sightings, a couple sets of Atlantic Spotted Dolphins, a couple Manta rays jumping, and lots of flying fish (whales were out of season). The guide...

Great fun. Whales had already headed further south. We did however see more than our share of dolphins, both the smaller tropical spinner dolphins and the larger bottlenose dolphins. We had a great time and have many memorable photos of dolphins. Living on the west cost of Florida in the State, we see dolphins but the photos of the jumpers... More

DO NOT BOOK THE CORCOVADO NATURE TOUR!!! This tour included 16 people with one guide and a second person with limited English who brought up the rear (but did not offer information). We were literally seated shoulder to shoulder on the 1 1/2 hour boat ride each way. The guide did not carry a scope so he relied on pointing... More

We read in the guide books that whale spotting season is December to April which is only partially true. We booked a trip in late February and well on the boat the guide said it's very hard to see them now as they already had gone out to sea after giving birth to their calves in the bay (Bahía Ballenas)...

While in Uvita we went on Bahia Aventuras Snorkel tour to Cano Island which was spectacular. Our guide truly loves his work and sharing his knowledge of the region as well as the wildlife. We saw sail fish, flying fish, spotted dolphins, humpback mama whales and babies, and this was just from the boat! Once in the water, which was... More
