Planning an itinerary for a foreign country travel can be challenging and stressful. Gecko Trail made our first-time experience (though only brief 5 days) in Costa Rica a super smooth, relaxing, and much memorable one. Monika was our primary planner - she was very professional, detailed, and patient in answering all my questions/concerns. I came with ideas of activities/places and hotels I wanted to check out, and Monika laid out the rest for me. I primarily needed arrangements for transportation and tours/activities. She was realistic and honest with me, explaining what can be achieved with my limited stay, and which activities may or may not need a guide, so I never felt solicited or pressured to spend on more. I've done research on my own, and wanted a balance of independent exploration and guided-tours to appreciate the culture and essence of Costa Rica. She was also quick with her email responses (at latest, only the next business day!). We exchanged many communications, and came up with personalized plans A/B/C, and even modified a few more details last minute. After-hour assistance: I was very appreciative of Gecko Trail's accessibility via WhatsApp after-hour. Staff still responded via WhatsApp after business hours, so I felt reassured knowing that if any part of my trip had issues, they will be there for me. Overall, I was very impressed by the arranged tours and transportations. All the guides/drivers were so accommodating, timely, professional, and friendly. We opted for private vans due to time constraints and more flexibility. During the long commute from one area to the next, the driver would ask if we needed snacks/bathroom breaks. Budget wise, that's different for everyone. Yes, overall, you are spending a bit more for the service and experience. But depending on your trip and factoring in time, desire to self-explore vs guided tours, how much you end up saving, etc. - I would say still choose Gecko Trail to plan partial, or even your entire itinerary. They will save you plenty of stress and make it worthwhile!

Absolutely amazing. Can't speak highly enough of Gecko Trail. We booked our entire 9 day trip from Fortuna to Puerto Viejo with them and they were exemplary. We worked with Andrea and from start to finish she was phenomenal. We revised our itinerary multiple times in order to add things we wanted or take out things we had decided not to do and Andrea accommodated us at every turn. We traveled around quite a bit during our trip and all of the shuttles were organized without any difficulty on our part. What I found the most impressive was that Andrea gave us her personal phone number and communicated with us daily. Any questions or messages we had for Andrea were immediately responded to and she made our experience stress free. I cannot recommend Gecko Trails and Andrea specifically enough. They are a highly professional company and I will be using them again the next time I travel to Costa Rica. Anyone with any intention on traveling around Costa Rica should use this company.

Tamara and the rest of the Gecko Trail was incredibly helpful in getting us from Puerto Viejo to Bocas del Toro and back. We traveled to Bocas on December 30 and it was very busy crossing the border. We opted to pay extra for a private shuttle on the way back, and we found it to completely be worth the extra cost - ask if this is an option for you, if interested. The company made all parts of crossing the border much easier to figure out from start to finish. Great company, great service!

This is the 4th time we have used Gecko Trail as our travel agent in Costa Rica. Tamara helped us with all hotel, transportation and testing needs. We cannot express enough gratitude for Gecko Trail for all their help in planning our trip to Costa Rica. We find them to be very professional, informative and helpful. We will definately use Gecko Trail again for our 5th trip. Thanks so much!
