We just returned from Samara Costa Rica. We used Skynet tours for three different excursions.
The first was the inshore fishing trip. We were told that it would cost $250.00 which included
fresh fruit, drinks and 4 hours of fishing. When we arrived to the boat, it was 20 ft open bow
boat. The drinks included were an open 1 liter of coca cola and a couple of canned beers.
There was no fresh fruit.... We went troll fishing and after two hours, I felt like this was a very
expensive boat ride as the two crew members hooked up the three fishing poles and left
them down in the water. We went around back and forth in the water for two hours and after no bites on the rods, I requested some bait to bottom fish. The crew members stated that they did not bring bait along for the trip! We did catch three fish trolling but it was not what we expected.
This was a VERY over priced boat ride and was far less than what was expected. Very disappointed. The crew members were nice and courteous but this was not worth $250.00.
The other two excursions were fabulous but I felt that after paying $610.00 for three tours, we
should have been partially reimbursed for the fishing excursion. The Palo Verde Tour was
fabulous and our tour guide Alberto was dynamite! Very helpful, kind, courteous and the
best guide ever! The Canopy zipline tour was excellent as well! I am rating this poor as Skynet
subcontracts some of their business to other people and they really need to know with whom
they are doing business, as to maintain a reputation so that people would want to return. We loved Costa Rica and do plan on returning, but am skeptical about booking a trip with this
