Had a great morning. Easy kayak out to the reef where we snorkeled. Saw plenty of fish, an eel and an octopus. Ravi gave us a very good account of the ecology of the area - both the bay and the forest overlooking it.

We actually did this trip in july 2018. I had a bit of trouble booking it at the time. Ended up reaching Javi through messenger. So glad I did. It wasn't a great time to snorkel in terms of conditions but we were happy to kayak out to isla chora and swim around. We did end up seeing quite a few fish. I think at other times of the year people see alot of stuff. Javi is very knowledgeable about costa rica. We had some fruit right on the beach. When we returned there were some scarlet macaws in a tree by the beach which was a bonus.

Javier picked us up a few minutes before 7 am, and he dropped us off after we finished the tour and had lunch.

He is very knowledgeable and easy-going. He knows a lot about the region (ocean, weather, geography, geology, and wildlife). He is very professional and follows safety guidelines. You and your loved ones will be in good hands with Javier.

Do yourself a favor and stay away from dishonest people who offer "discounted" tours. Go with Javier (dondeJavitours)! I highly recommend his services.

So much fun! Javi is a great person making sure we are all safe and happy! The tour is about 2 hours and goes to a small pretty island where you can snorkel. The water is much clearer over there than on the beach of Samara. After snorkelling there is fruit and water for everyone. Javi also shares all his knowledges about the area and his experience with the group. It’s a really fun and great tour :)

Javi is a great guide full of wonderful information. He made sure we were all safe and prepared before heading out. Kayaking out he pointed out a turtle. The island is beautiful with nice white sand. I have snorkeled in some well know spots before, but I loved how close we were to the rocks. Even with choppy water, I think I saw at least 10 different fish in the first 10 minutes. He provided us with water and pineapple which was a refreshing treat after snorkeling. On the way back I saw 2 more turtles!

Can’t say enough great things about our time on and in the water with Javi & Michael. Javi started our day off with a huge smile and lovely “Welcome to Sámara” attitude which helped set the tone for our entire visit to the Sámara area. We loved kayaking, snorkeling, and the added bonus of Javi sharing his deep knowledge of the area — geography, biology, geology, etc. We all wished we had had professors in high school and college who had been as engaging as Javi! Never learned so much while having fun.

Tips: About two hours on and in the water - no kayaking or snorkeling experience necessary. Excellent with kids and adults, alike. Private tour.

We kayaked out to Chora Island and snorkeled in the Samara Bay reef with Jarvier "Jarvi" and it was the best adventure during our three weeks traveling in amazing Costa Rica. Jarvi is a really well rounded naturalist and gave us so much information about Playa Samara and Costa Rica in general. He really cares and loves Samara and is a really good representative of his native home. Don't miss this opportunity.

We had a great time kayaking & snorkeling with Javi. He was easy to reach by messenger & was very responsive. He has tons of knowledge to share regarding the area as well as Costa Rica in general. Don’t waste your time booking trips with monkey tours or anyone else...Javi is the man to see.

We had a great time kayaking and snorkeling on Chora Island with Javi - but above all we enjoyed his knowledge of Costa Rica, from its geology to political formation. We learned a lot while having a lovely morning on and in the water. We feel like we know so much more about Costa Rica now!
