Gecko did a great job for us. There recommendations were spot on for our family. The drivers were always on time and everything met or exceeded our expectations. Be sure to spend a little time studying each of the events so you can better understand what to expect and the timing of it. I highly recommend Gecko Trail and would... More

Gecko trails were very professional and accommodates to exactly the trip your looking for at a very reasonable price! Rafting was a blast, and a must do! So was the Jaguar rescue center in Puerto Viejo. I would not stay in San Jose or spend any days there if you can avoid it-there are so many other more beautiful places!

Ours was a customised trip, with a guide-driver. Monika sorted out excellent accommodation throughout, and was most helpful always. Very quick response as we planned the Itinerary.

We were able to find an amazing deal on airfare to Costa Rica for the Christmas holiday in 2016. With only 2 months to pull together a trip, Nina at Gecko Trail was able to organize everything for our family of 4. Not only did she help organize our day excursions in Monteverde and Tamarindo, she booked our lodging and... More

Amazing! We were staying in Puerto Viejo, and the rafting trip was recommended as an adventurous way there as opposed to sitting in a shuttle bus for 4+ hours.....We cannot say enough good about the fast responses via email from Nina, and all the help she provided making the arrangements & recommendations (neither one of us have rafted before, but...

Gecko Trail organized our whole honeymoon from hotels, to tours, to transportation. Everything went perfectly and we loved all the places we stayed and activities we did while in Costa Rica. I was amazed at how flexible they were. Two days before we were supposed to leave for our honeymoon, I got diagnosed with the flu. I was bedridden, had... More

I booked a half day jungle hike with the company as a solo traveller. The tour requires a minimum of 2 people so I contacted the company to see if there was any upcoming tours I could join. The response was prompt and I was booked onto a tour with 2 others. I was collected from my hotel, we stopped... More

We booked an excursion to Manzanillo-Gandoca plus shuttles from Puerto Viejo to Arenal and Arenal to San Jose. At the last minute we decided to change one of our shuttles to a rafting trip on the Pacuare. Megan at Gecko made this work and we were never charged any cancellation or change fees. She handled most of our reservations and... More

We used Gecko to organize all of our travel needs. They did an excellent job with everything and I plan to use them again when I return in a few months. On time with all excursions and transfers and I couldn't have been more pleased.

I am so glad that I found Nina and Gecko Trail! She was helpful, patient, and flexible as we muddled through our travel plans. I spent the first few days of the trip on the Pacuare River and it was outstanding! Then met up with friends to go to Tortuguero followed by Playa Chiquita. She helped us identify the best... More
