Alex showing up at our hotel, the day after our tour, after he spent the entire day searching and talking to locals until he found my go pro camera, that I lost, with all the photos from our...

We had heard Samara Adventure Company was good so we went there first as we arrived, but we didn't know HOW grand it would be. We were there everyday, saying hello to Maria the sweet and fun lady at the front desk, and befriending Rodrigo & Alex, the tour guides. We didn't bother going anywhere else for our excursion/tour needs.... More

We saw tons of Instagram posts for this hike - so we thought we would give it a try. Being that it was the rainy season everything was SO lush, and it was nice to get out of the sun. Our Guide went above and beyond and the views were the best! If you want to see Monkeys and learn... More

Samara Adventures has its office bang in the centre of Samara -a lovely small beach town. This is a very professional company with exceptionally helpful and friendly staff. I dealt with Maria and booked a dolphin tour which was approx 4 hours. The weather was glorious but if it had been awful the tour would have been postponed. My wife... More

Alex was our awesome guide for a turtle nesting tour to Playa Caramonal and a kayak tour on the Rio Ora. Both tours were a huge success, we tons of wildlife, Alex was entertaining and answered all our questions, and transport was included both ways. Highly recommended!
