          So. Much. Fun.
          The guides were great. We saw 3 separate whales, sea turtle and more dolphins than you can imagine. My daughter had never been on a boat before and she had an absolute blast. They provide plenty of water, juice, and even beer. The snorkeling was so fun. It was rainy so the water was a little murky, but can't complain about that as no one has any control over it. The snorkeling gear was well taken care of, and to top off the fun trip we had the freshest watermelon and pineapple ever while my daughter spent some time going down the slides off the back of the boat. And the views...nothing like the views. Would definitely do this again.

          Just give it a go...you won't be disappointed.
          HIGHLY recommended. Our guide Bryan was amazing. He took our daughter on her own horse and kept her so comfortable and safe (she's 4 1/2). The views, the knowledge of the horses, the knowledge of the land, all of this excursion was epic. Would do it again in a heartbeat and it was so reasonably priced.

          Perfect morning on the ocean!
          Perfect morning adventure for me and my teen daughter! Kayaking was easy enough for beginners and snorkeling was laid back and fun. We were so excited to be on Chora Island, which we had admired from afar. Guides were professional, knowledgeable, and kind!

          Fantastic Guide, great for the whole family!
          We went on the morning tour. Our guide Alex was the best. Not only was he knowledgeable and great with the adults, but he was so wonderful with my kids. I brought my 7 year old and 3 year old. He taught them about plants and wildlife, it was a fully immersive learning experience. He's appreciation and knowledge of the plants and animals was wonderful. My girls were pointing out plants to me throughout our trip that Alex had taught them about. We saw bats, monkeys, butterflies and birds. The fruit & cold drinks at the end were great.

          Great morning kayaking
          The Tour guides were so helpful and knowledgeable. You kayak at low tide to the island for about 20 min where you have fruit and snorkel

          Dolphins everywhere!
          What an experience! We saw a pod of 100+ Spinner dolphins, spotted dolphins, a whale, sea turtles, and tons of birds. Mo was great, captain George was spot on. The cold beers and fruit on the way back hit the spot! Highly recommend!

          Wonderful nature tour!
          Wonderful experience! The guide brought us through his family’s land and taught us a lot about local plants and wildlife. We got to see so many things, including baby monkeys! The fresh mangoes were incredible and the hikes and views were awesome. I love that they have turned what used to be a farm into forest for the wildlife again. Definitely recommend this tour!

          Ocean Kayak & Snorkelling Chora island a must!
          We found Samara Adventures online and loved the TripAdvisor reviews. In a nutshell, this adventure was fantastic! 5-Star Rating! Right from the booking process, to comms via email, everything was done just right. We did the 8am tour and had to drive from Tamarindo that morning, so we set off at 5:45am. Mo, our guide met us at the office and we were driven to Samara Beach. We were caffeine depleted, so Mo even stopped off at a coffee shop on the way ti the beach so we could grab a coffee. It was just my husband and I on the tour, so we had personalised service. Mo's knowledge of the Chora Island, the geographical history and where to snorkel was great. We snorkelled twice, with fresh pineapple and refreshments served half way through the trip. The kayak was in perfect condition as was the snorkelling gear. The team at Samara Adventures were superb. I can't recommend them highly enough. I'm so glad we made the 2hr drive down. They even gave us tips for our coastal drive back to Tamarindo on where to drive, what to be careful of (the road is pretty bumpy in parts) and where to stop. Thanks Team Samara Adventures.

          Local nature reserve
          This was the second of our two tours with Samara Adventures, this time to a local biological reserve just outside of town. An excellent three hours in the early morning with Alex, who is a very knowledgeable naturalist and guide. In the category of small local (rather than national) reserves, this was both informative and enjoyable.

          Great Dolphin Tour
          A really excellent dolphin watching tour with our guide Alex and Captain Jorge. Two spotted dolphins and literally dozens if not hundreds of bottle nose. Sea turtles were a bonus. Alex is very knowledgable and friendly guide and Jorge an experienced captain. Highly recommended.

          Great experience.
          Mauricio, our guide, did a wonderful tour of Werner. There were so many things that we learned about the Reserve and Costa Rica. I was amazed by the variety of trees, plants, and animals in the reserve and our guide's description of the plants, how they fit in and survive the five months of drought, and what happens after the rains start. My wife has a butterfly garden and is a bird watcher. We saw the national blue butterfly of Costa Rica and numerous colorful birds. He also told us stories about the area, it's history and development.

          Efficient & Friendly Service
          We booked our Liberia airport private shuttle pick up/return with them. It was a really hot day when we arrived. Gabriel, our driver handed us cold beverages as soon as we got in the vehicle. He was polite, attentive, friendly and an excellent driver. We talked about Costa Rica and its people. He recommended places to go & eat. He gave us a great first impression of his country. We also met Luisa in the Samara office and she was equally friendly and accommodating when we requested Gabriel to be our driver for our airport return. We highly recommend Samara Adventures.

        It was my first experience of SUP and I'm almost 60 so I was somewhat "afraid" before starting but the instructors were quite friendly, patient and gave excellent advice to improve. They also adapted to the different levels of the participants. The "break" on the island was nice, with some explanations on local animals and some delicious fruit to eat. A tip : if you've never done SUP before, it may help you if you watch a video on how to do it before : that's what I did and it helped me to improve quicker.
        A very fun and successful experience.
