We stayed in Samara for a week and were able to find an affordable and quick tour to watch dolphins with Book with Maria. Maria communicated with us exactly what we needed to bring, when to be ready and other important information in the best way possible. We all had a great time. Highly recommend!

It was a bad day for snorkeling perhaps- cloudy, windy and rough waves stirring up the sand did not make for great snorkeling. Not sure how much we can blame them for that but they didn’t give us a lot of guidance where to look. And I am still waiting for them to send me the pictures. Their gear is a bit old with limited size varieties and my face was too narrow for all of the goggles so not sure this would work if you were a kid. If you are only there a few days- I would skip this.

Hello! Maria here :) We always appreciated feedback, specially when nature is involve, we dont have any messages or feedback from bo body so not sure your name or nothing. Why not telling us? Im sure people know snorkeling is out of human control and we have amazing feedback about this tour as is very popular. About pictures we dont include them, we dont have too, the guides offer them for free, and if you dont received them you can always reach us as any other client without affecting us. Welcome to Costa Rica and dont forget we are based on nature and we can't control that. Also Im always available and trying to help my clients as you can read on reviews, but you didn't reach us. Have good day, Pura Vida!

Maria is amazing at organizing trips and activities. She is fastidious about details and scheduled everything perfectly for us over WhatsApp so I could plan and book everything from the beach! Excellent service and a lovely lady.

I would like to give a big thank you and strongly recommende Book with María "Your one stop booking shop"
for helping us with our stay in Carrillo!
She went far above and beyond to ensure our trip went as smoothly as possible.
When we showed up at our Airbnb, she helped us order food so we didn't starve on the first night. She helped us with our rental car, booking our kayak tour on the Rio Ora, set up our covid tests and kept in touch with us during our stay. Even when we got stuck in Sámara she made a call and a driver was there within a few minutes. Maria was a big part of our amazing time there and we encourage anyone and everyone who is seeking a trustworthy and professional company to assist them with there booking needs to giver her a call.
Thanks again Maria!
Pura Vida 🤙

We were a family group of 8: 6 adults and 2 young children. We stayed in Playa Samara for 10 days and did daily activities - all of which were recommended by Maria. We ocean kayaked, snorkeled, rode horses, drove ATVs, went whitewater rafting as well as ziplining. All of the activities we did were so much fun for everyone. Maria also organized COVID testing for our group. Our trip certainly wouldn't have been the same without Maria. I would recommend her to all friends and family visiting Samara.

Excellent fun. Louis was great and snorkelling on reef wonderful. Fruit and drinks on Island were nice, but there isn’t much to do or see on Chora apart from a few monkeys - so more swimming. well worth it tho

Great trip. We worried perhaps it might be too strenuous for older folks but it was a piece of cake. Our guide Luis took great care of us meeting us at our hotel and making sure we got to snorkel a bit near the island. Overall great experience. We booked through Maria and she kept in touch with us to make sure all went well. If In Samara, I highly recommend booking through Maria and visiting the Island.

We had an amazing guide. He found a nest of sea turtles just starting to hatch. We got to watch 100 babies emerge and walk to the sea. Awesome!
