Relaxing River Adventure

The folks at the office in Samara were very helpful (and friendly) in making reservations. Alex was the guide and was amazing. He knew the river so well and frequently pointed out the birds and animals. River otter sighting was the best. With all the rain the river current was strong, but the rafting experience was easy. I would highly recommend this trip for those interested in the ecology of Costa Rica and who are looking for a fun and relaxing adventure. Even better if Alex is your guide!
Excellent nature tour

Such a great tour! We love birdwatching and Francisco was an excellent guide. He took lots of time and made sure we saw everything. He was also very knowledgeable about local plants and history as well. We loved the experience and would do another tour with them if we had the time. Even the driver for our trip, Wilmer, was so friendly and kind. Definitely recommend them!
Smooth kayaking

Our guide, David, made the tour as he was extremely knowledgeable, outgoing, and accommodating. The river was calm and therefore did not require a lot of concentration, affording us the opportunity to take in all the sites and sounds. Highly recommend this your. Ask for Dave.
Beautiful and informative

Due to summer season on some points there was not a lot water so we had to walk through the water at some points.
But it was great, the guide had a lot to tell about wildlife and the birds in this area.
Very nice Kayak tour!
A Perfect Day on the Rio Ora

We were picked up from or hotel on Playa Samara at one in the afternoon (high tide), where we met our guide, Allan. There were seven of us on the tour, a mixture of tourists from around the world. This was not our first tour with this company, and as always, they did not disappoint. We saw a variety of birds, including hawks and blue herons as well as a monkey troop playing near the riverside. Our guide was very knowledgeable and full of stories of the river and its inhabitants. The river is very gentle and easy to navigate, for even the most inexperienced kayaker. I highly recommend this tour to anybody interested in learning a little bit about the trees and wildlife that live on the Rio Ora, or even for people who just want a wonderful day out in a unique environment.
