“Samara info center”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

We booked a vacation centered around Samara and had a great time. The area was a bit less touristy than other areas of CR we visited and provided the perfect environment to relax in. This was in part due to the helpful support from Brenda and Christopher from the Samara & Carrillo Info Center. Brenda was available by email prior to our trip and by phone or in person once we arrive in CR. Christopher was actually watching our hotel while owners we away. The both helped us get there, plan, book a few excursions and deal with a few unexpected changes in plans and enjoy our visit more. I would also like to say that they both helped in direct response to our needs and questions and did not push anything we did not ask for. I can't say enough about the support they provided.

“Get the Info you Need with a Smile”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

Located right at the entrance to Samara, this should be your first stop to find out what is going on in town. Brenda seems to know everyone and everything going on here. Good place to plan your visit with tours or just tips on the best places to eat. All you questions will be answered with a smile and enthusiasm. Thanks for everything Brenda!

“Best there is”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

Chris and Brenda were absolutely helpful, friendly and warm. Very special people.
Always ready with answers to any questions with a smile on their faces. They know an incredible amount on Samara and what there is to do. They can offer, advise or book any trip or adventure for you and make sure you get the best. When one of our bookings with them fell through (absolutely no fault of theirs) they went out of their way to make sure it was fixed and Chris even drove us to the rendevous himself just because they care.
If you go to Samara, please stop and see Chris and Brenda. It will be the best thing you could do to make sure you have a great time there

“The go to place for info and excursion bookings!”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

Brenda is awesome. She can let you know what excursions are available, what sites you cant miss while in Samara, and takes care of setting up all the bookings for you! Just exchange emails with her or your phone number and she will get back to you in no time with all the details.
She is located right in Samara down from Century 21

“Samara info center is awesome !!!”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

Brenda is awesome...before i was even in samara she helped me locate my hotel owner, then upon arrival she gave us discount cards good at many of the bars and restaurants. She always said hi when i saw her and always was helpful when i needed info...if she doesn't know, she will find out. The day i was leaving my bus was very late and she offered to call the terminal and did...of course the bus was late. BRENDA, THANKS FOR YOUR HELP AND BEST WISHES FROM ME! vincent sedlmeyer
