About Fly With Us - Ultralight Tours
We offer scenic flights in an open gyrocopter of 20 minutes, 30 minutes or 60 minutes departing from Sámara, Tamarindo, Nosara and Punta Islitas. Contact us for details. Description Tour Sámara: Taking off from our runway "Airpark Costa Rica" locally known as "La Pista" only 10 minutes outside of the beautiful little beach town Sámara in Guanacaste. Our shortest tour of 20 minutes will lead you first to one of the most beautiful white beaches in Guanacaste called Playa Barrigona where famous actor Mel Gibson owns a beach property. Next, you will head inland to the River Buena Vista on the lookout for sunbathing crocodiles along the river. The next part of your flight takes you to the beaches of Sámara and Carillo where you might get a soaring eagles' perspective of manta rays, dolphins, big schools of fish and sea turtles. From Carillo you'll overfly the Isla Chora on the way to Playa Buena Vista were you'll experience the sensation of flying just over breaking waves and feel you're surfing in mid-air! Return to the runway while enjoying a beautiful view of the rain forests and mangroves. In the time from December to March and August to Oktober you can often see whales playing near the shore. What to bring? You'll need a video or photo camera that can be secured at your wrist, also good idea to bring sunglasses.

One of the best and must things to do in Samara. This is way better than a helicopter to explore the area. You will never have so much fun anywhere else in Samara. 💯% worth it.
