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.

Outstanding! What an absolutely marvellous experience, many years ago I enjoyed watching the James Bond film "you only live twice". In that film, we were introduced to "Little Nelly" James Bond's personal gyrocopter. More than 30 years later, I had the wonderful opportunity to fly back seat in Samara. After a quick brief, we took off along the short runway and very quickly descended to just over the waves passing between gaps in the rocks and around Peninsula which made incredible viewing. From there we follow the river and pick out the crocodiles then a quick fly along the beach skimming over the palm trees and waving to the locals. Next out to sea to search for whales sadly none sighted but we were able to see many turtles on the surface and a pod of dolphins. Finally up into the clouds and a wonderful view over the Peninsula. Thank you Jorge for such a welcome experience, safe travels Pura Vida

Holy. Crappoli. This was maybe the most fun I’ve ever had- and I am a connoisseur of fun. Jorge is an excellent pilot and we zoomed down rivers, along beaches, skimmed the ocean… seriously the views are just incredible. It’s absolutely mind blowing. Words can’t really even describe the awesomeness- just EPIC FUN. If this is not on your bucket list, put it on there right now and go fly with these guys. You will not regret it. Best $$ ever spent.

Today's flight with Jorge was absolutely the BEST experience. He was very knowledgeable about the scenic areas .. talked about the safety of the aircraft, gave me a low level view of some of the most beautiful beaches, and rock cliffs..we found a whale shark the open waters . .saw crocodiles in the rivers ..I would absolutely take lessons from Jorge to become a pilot myself and will schedule another flight with him on our next trip to Samara. Put this on your bucket list and DO IT!!!
