We went on the Kayak and snorkeling tour. It was a short trip out to the beautiful Chora Island where we snorkeled and relaxed on the beach, while enjoying freshly cut pineapple and watermelon. We were surrounded by wildlife and views of samara and the surrounding beaches. It was a perfect morning!

They arranged for private transport from San Jose Airport to Samara, and Samara to Monteverde. Our driver (Henry) was fantastic. He was informed, professional, on... More

My Wife and I took a couple of different tours with Samara Adventure Company during the first week of November. The Turtle Tour at Camaronal Wildlife Refuge was an incredible experience. We saw two different turtles nesting at Playa Camaronal and were able to watch the baby turtles being released into the ocean. Our Tour Guide Rodrigo was very knowledgeable... More

The guides are very informative and knowledgable. We found turtles digging nests and laying eggs, We were allowed to observe up close, take pictures and video. Incredible! Bring your... More

It was such a fun and adventurous stay at Samara! But it was the assistance from Samara Adventure Company which made the time there exceptional! We did the Kayaking to Chora Island where we spent a memorable afternoon snorkeling and watching the bright colored tropical fish lazily swimming along under us! And they even provided beverages and healthy snacks while... More

If you get the opportunity to book a private boat snorkeling sunset tour captain Jorge and guide Bernie are the best. The conditions for snorkeling were fair but sunset cruise in the Pacifico brought forward several mating turtles, schools of mahimahi and a beautiful sunset. Bernie was the perfect guide, very knowledgable and Captain Jorge was very good at showing... More

Our party of four did the River Kayak, the Ocean Kayak and the Night Turtle tours with Samara Adventure Company. They picked us up at our rental house and were always prompt, friendly and knowledgeable. Each tour was a great experience. We highly recommend Samara Adventure Company.
