Super comfortable air conditioned ride with internet and he helped me with my luggage and was super polite and excellent to talk to. I would use this service again and again.

We did a bunch of tours with this company, they are awesome! And Bee from the Samara Info center set it all up for us. Great team! If you need a driver we highly recommend Richardo! He’s a very safe and experienced driver, his English is very good and he knows the very best places for coffee and food (local family owned), he’s got a sense of humor and told us all about the places and history of areas we drove through. For a small extra fee if you are out of the area of free pick up, they will still come get you, we paid 25 USD extra total, rounds trip for three. If you do the all day La Fortuna or Monteverde, you should request Richardo and tip this man well, he is awesome at his job :) he even took us to an amazing grocery store so we could stock up on our way home. We had Alex and Henry on a couple of our other excursions from river kayak, Isla Chora kayak and dolphin tour, highly recommend these guys also!! And last but certainly not least, Isaac at the Samara adventures headquarters completely saved us several times with translating and phone calls and helped us coordinate COVID tests to go home when schedules and times got mixed up, you rock Issac! Thank you all very much, apologies for not remembering other names. These guys get 11 stars out of 10, thank you all so much for making our trip great, showing us your beautiful country and taking such good care of us!!! Hugs and Pura Vida from Montana USA 😊

The folks at the office in Samara were very helpful (and friendly) in making reservations. Alex was the guide and was amazing. He knew the river so well and frequently pointed out the birds and animals. River otter sighting was the best. With all the rain the river current was strong, but the rafting experience was easy. I would highly recommend this trip for those interested in the ecology of Costa Rica and who are looking for a fun and relaxing adventure. Even better if Alex is your guide!

Thanks for the amazing review. We are glad to hear you loved your experience during the activity, The guide puts so much effort, love to share as much as possible of his knowledge for everyone, review reaffirms the hard work he puts in every day. Sometimes the dry tropical forest could be a little bit strenuous, but we will do the best to do it easier and fun. We are so grateful for your kind words. Thanks for sharing your review with us and the community. Pura Vida!
