We have done the night turtle tour and the dolphin and whale tour. Both of them where conducted by very good guides which not only were professional but also taking care of everyone's needs. For example in the last tour I was badly seasick and they took care of me. Thanks. I strongly recommend them.

We toured the Werner-Souther dry forest. Our tour guide, Bernie was very knowledgeable. Great scenery, we saw lots of fauna, including bats, birds, and monkeys. We kept a reasonable pace and the hike was not too challenging. We had a great time and learned a lot.

We ended up having the dry forest/mango plantation tour to ourselves, a family of four,... More

There are many wonderful things I could say about Alex, our guide, and Samara Adventure. Instead, I will start with the end. 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
