    The beaches are large and clean. In August the are not crowded at all. The only issue is people coming up and saying buy this or buy that....

    We were met by Ray who explained the tour and welcomed us. Our tour was conducted by Tio Leo himself. He was very informative and patient, sharing his passion for coffee production. The tour was exactly as explained on the website with some wonderful surprises. It was a great day to spend the morning.

    I HIGHLY recommend coming here when visiting Costa Rica! The staff were extremely nice. Our tour guide Jeremy (I believe that’s his name) was interactive with everyone during the tour. This was my boyfriend and I first time doing a Safari Tour which exceeded our expectations 😍! The part also has a waterfall, kayaking, and many more to do! The price was well worth it.

    **TIP: Definitely should buy the carrots that they sell to feed the animals ($2 a bag). It makes the experience even better**

    Easy 3km mostly paved trail. Good to look at the mud baths and fume holes. Crowded after 10am. Family friendly.

    We love animal rescue missions and this turned out to be another rewarding experience. They're doing great work. Only head scratcher was that there appeared to be a lot of infrastructure - seemingly too much to support less than 25-30 animals

    Want to let the people in charge know that the staff at ScubaCaribe is top notch. Camillo was very informative with all of the services your company provides for the guests at the Guanacaste Riu. He gave us an awesome price on the Catamaran Sunset tour. We liked it so much that we later purchased the water taxi to Coco Beach, and also chartered a half day fishing trip through you as well.

    The Catamaran trip included snorkeling. Under water, we saw sea turtles, schools of colorful fish, and manta rays. Our guide, "Rhasta" was very informative and helpful in many ways. He took photos of us in caves that are only accessible during low tide, and was a wealth of information about the area and its many attractions. They provided all the necessary equipment, fruit, and water bottles. The Captain's name was Orlando and he did a great job as well.

    Rhasta was with us again for the water taxi to Coco Beach and it was interesting to have him inform us of all the celebrities that have homes in the Papagayo Gulf, as we passed them on the way to Coco Beach. The Captain even took us into some caves so we could see all the crabs scurrying away as we pulled close. These extra things are not necessary to get you from point A to point B, but they sure were appreciated.

    As for the deep sea fishing, we had 4 people, plus the Captain ("Macho"), and his first mate. To be honest, we did not catch huge fish. We opted for a less expensive trip (less than $250 for all four of us) with bottom fishing instead of trolling, but that said, every person caught more than one fish. And the crew was very helpful with tips and techniques to make sure we did not go back empty handed. We ended up keeping 4 of the dozen fish caught and took them back to the hotel for the chef to cook them up for us. All the equipment and bait were provided, and we had a great morning with these guys.

    We did a boat tour with Costour Plenty of wildlife to see. Our guide Felix, AKA, eagle eye, spotted so many things and pointed them out to us that just looking on our own would have missed.
    The boat tour is approx. 1.5 hours long. Followed by a beautiful typical Costa Rican lunch.

    This beach does not have sharp rocks and offers a long shallow entry. There are safe parking areas with guards who work for tips. They are attentive and the locals trust them with car keys while they surf,

    Cool spot on the beach. Good beer and great service. The half ass nachos (half order) were enough to fill two people. The quesadillas were yummy too.

    The curved harbor is situated at the base of rocky headline, engulfing guests with white sugar sand, crystal clear water, and a verdant mountainside as far as the eye can see. Much of it is comprised of shells, so bring shoes if you're planning to walk long distances.

    My husband and I have been to Costa Rica before but were new to Samara, and wanted our teen to experience what makes Costa Rica so incredible. We found the Info Center and got hooked up with Bee. She was enthusiastic, an excellent communicator, and was very accessible. We told her what activities we were interested in doing and she helped us plan the ideal times to do all of them, and even helped us reschedule them when the weather changed. It was INVALUABLE knowing that someone who was knowledgeable had things like that under control so that we could still enjoy our vacation and not stress about it! She was very clear when we scheduled things about where we needed to go, and paying for the activities was super easy. I can't say enough good things about our experience with Bee and the Samara Info Center!

    We visited Barrigona beach whilst staying near by, and what a beach it is! Hardly anyone around, beautiful white sand and warm sea water! Breathtaking!

    Absolutely incredible experience. Sensoria is a truly special place, where you hike from waterfall to waterfall, hot spring to spring, encountering truly beautiful sights at every step of the way. Our guide, Joaquin, was extremely knowledgeable and kind, and I can’t recommend him enough. And the other very special part about Sensoria is the privacy — it’s a reserve so you have almost the entire place to yourself. We never shared any spring or waterfall with more than 1 other family. And the food is delicious! Enjoy your trip!!

    You have to leave your car at the free parking at the entry of the peninsula. Then a bus will drive you.
    Playa Nacascolo is the first beach at the entry of peninsula. You can continue with another bus until playa Blanca which is wonderful.
    There is always a peace of white sand even if tide is up. You can see a lot of fish in the water, just snorkeling. There are trees for giving shadow.
    There is few people because there are 600 stairs to access the beach.
    You have to bring your own food and drink because there is no restaurant or bar on the beach.
    You have a nice view on the bay in front of Panama and Hermosa playas.
    The last bus to move back to the car is at 5pm.
