March/April 2017 I want to thank Monika and Gecko Trails for the awesome experience in Costa Rica. We planned a three day tour with Gecko upon arriving into San Jose. We toured Tortuguero and went river rafting down the Pacuere River. Our transportation, accommodations, guides, and food were all included. We booked our own accommodations in Playa Chiquita for eight... More

Travelling with my wife and 11-year old daughter, we just returned from our second trip to Costa Rica. We used Gecko Trail in 2011 and had such a great experience that we didn't hesitate to work with them again. This time, we flew into SJO and went to Puerto Viejo and Gecko Trail planned everything. From the initial contact, everyone... More

I wanted to take the time to thank GECKOTRAIL, especially Monika, and others that have assisted when she was not available, for 5 star service.

I had a great experience with Gecko for booking our 2- day Pacuare River trip provided by Exploradores Outdoors! Nina was great with getting us our reservation, allowing our group to pay each separately, answering our questions and responding in a prompt and timely manner via email! Thank you Nina and Gecko for setting up our adventure!

I have never had to worry when writing a review that people may think this was paid for by them... Honestly cannot recommend this enough.
