What an experience!!! It is so different to see Costa Rica from an open air gyroplane. My flight really helped me appreciate the beauty of Costa Rica and the gorgeous shoreline. You get to see whales, dolphins, and tremendous scenery.

If you do one thing while in Samara go on the gyro copter. It is an experience you will never forget! Joerg is an amazing pilot and it is a very safe aircraft, if I could give it 10 Stars I would.
