After we requested certain experiences in Costa Rica, Gecko put together a great vacation package for my family. The lodging, taxi from the airport, tours, everything was well done and reasonably priced. We had a few personal problems and when I contacted Gecko for assistance, they were extremely helpful. I highly recommend this company.

I only used gecko trails to book a shuttle bus, but I also enquired about a few other things. As I only had wifi, I did this all via email. I found there responses quick, usually within a hour or two, and helpfully. :)

This company has been wonderful to work with. They are responsive and know all about the best tours. We did a week stay in Costa Rica and they arranged everything. Can't thank them enough. Highly recommended.

We used Gecko Trails to book a shuttle transport and a Tortuguero package. Everyone we communicated with, especially Monika, were very helpful with answering questions and making sure all the details were perfect. We have used Gecko Trails many times in the past, and every experience has been great. We will definitely be using them again for our future trip... More

I decided on a route around the country and used Gecko Trail to fix my transport. They were efficient responsive to e mails and everything worked perfectly. We were unlucky enough to be there during the Otto hurricane which required some travel changes and again Gecko were extremely helpful. I feel confident in thoroughly recommending their travel agency services.

Gecko Trail (Irene and other members of the team) were amazing in putting together a great itinerary and then having to make numerous last minute changes due to Hurricane Otto. They responded to emails promptly and practically 24/7 and were able to make bookings with practically zero notice. All our pick ups were seamless and on time. We have had... More

It was a real pleasure Ben, to make sure you had a good time even with Otto hitting the country and bringing much rain and last minute changes to your holiday. It is very motivating to hear our efforts were appreciated and that you had an excelent time in Costa Rica! Pura Vida! More

We went on three tours out of Puerto Viejo with Gecko Trail - ziplining, snorkel / hike, and Rescue Centre / Chocolate Lady / Waterfall. All were excellent. I swear that each pickup was within about 20 seconds of being perfectly on time. Further, every person with whom we interacted seemed absolutely dedicated to making sure we had an excellent... More

Thank you for such a great trip. My friend and I lucked out and had a "private" group tour. Our guide did a wonderful job pointing out all kinds of wildlife (vipers - eyelash and hognose, toucans, a sloth, bats, raccoons, and more). When we went snorkeling we saw a manta ray, a hoxbill turtle, and lots of colorful fish.... More

After reading the many 5-star reviews, I can not agree more with all of them. Gecko Trails planned our 10 day trip from start to finish and it was flawless. From hotels to transport to adventures, they have it all figured out. My wife forgot her passport in 1 hotel the day we traveled 4 hours east to a different... More
