Brenda was amazing! Make this your first stop when you get to the Samara area, she gave us good, honest and trusted advise. There was no hard sell or pushing - very straightforward and good advise. She not only helped us book activities for our kids but she helped give very good advice for the rest of our Costa Rica trip and can book all over Costa Rica. All the great reviews online are accurate, this place is top notch.
Brenda was very pleasant to exchange with in preparation of our trip. She asked about our desires in order to recommend the best places and provided useful information. We ended booking our hotels and tours with some friends but if you don't want to bother too much, the Samara-Carrillo Info Center is the place to go, they can book everything for you. And it is Free !
