“Exactly What We Were Looking For”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

The Werner Sauter Biological Reserve tour was exactly what we were looking for. We are from Florida, USA, and we were looking for an activity where we could learn more about the wildlife and plantlife of the region. The guide, who is a family member of this private land, is very knowledgable. He has an abundance of knowledge. We saw many creatures and plants that were remarkable.

“Alvaro is a wealth of information!”
Reviewed May 6, 2011

We recently enjoyed this very interesting hike behind samara beach up into the biological reserve owned by Alvaro's family. Alvaro picked us up at our rental place and drove us to where the trail begins. He has done a lot of hard work making the path accommodating for the people he brings through. He supplied a refreshing snack for when we reached the summit and the spectacular view of both Carrillo and Samara beaches. It was well worth the time and cost, just meeting someone so passionate about what they do was refreshing. We wish him all the luck in the world with this endeavour and his plans to extend the hiking trails.

“Fabulous Forest At Samara!”
Reviewed February 28, 2011

The Werner Sauter Biological Reserve is a treasure for the Samara area!! My husband and I had the pleasure of walking there recently and enjoyed the meandering trail, the views of the valley and the bay, as well as the fantastic trees and wildlife there. We saw an ancient Guanacaste tree in the untouched forest, and many varieties of birds, butterflies, iguanas, plants and trees. The monkeys called out and curiously followed us throughout our hike! Our guide was very knowledgeable in the local biology and plant lore, and history of the Reserve. The trail culminated with a sweeping view of Carillo Bay and Samara Bay. What a spot! Wildlife lovers will love this tour!
