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. It was my first time travelling alone, as a single, young female. What could have been a very nerve-wracking holiday was the most incredible experience. Just to test the waters, I emailed Gecko for their... More

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...
