I worked closely with Tamara while planning this vacation for myself and a high school friend. To say that she was amazing wouldn't be enough!! She was readily available at all times to make requested changes, suggestions or help with any issues or questions that we had before, during and at the very end of our vacation. It was such a pleasure to meet here as well while we were visiting. We had to make some changes during our stay due to weather and she was amazing!! Prices were exceptional and we stayed in some amazing as well as interesting places. I wouldn't hesitate to use Tamara or Gecko Trail again in the future!

Gecko Travels provided excellent service, safe transportation, friendly staff, and a wonderful tour along the way. We had nothing but a positive experience working with them from end to end and next time I visit Costa Rica again I will look forward to working with them.

I used Gecko as a shuttle service in December 2020. Once from SJO (2:30pm pickup) to my hotel in Puerto Viejo ($60/person), and then once again from PV at my Airbnb to my Arenal Airbnb (private shuttle for me and a few friends for $375). I dealt with Nina via email and she was such a pleasure to deal with. She answered quickly and was super patient with the million questions I asked her. The vans themselves were standard and bit a dated. So don’t expect a super cozy experience. But it was comfortable enough to not be anywhere near painful for the 5 hour trip. The driver was a cool guy. He’ll stop for a bathroom break and a food break if you need. *Tip your driver*. They GREATLY appreciate it.

Gecko was recommended to us by my brother who works for Expedia - he had used Gecko for transfers, but had suggested we reach out and get in touch to see if they could plan our honeymoon. I reached out to Gecko and ended up dealing with Monika for pretty much the whole time, although the other team members were as helpful and brilliant as her! From start to finish, Monika helped to plan a full two week itinerary, allowed us to pick and chose hotel options, tours AND transfers... all we had to do was keep track of our time, and wait at the times she had planned for us. Monika had even made it possible for our friends to surprise us with wedding gifts along the way - we were completely overwhelmed and happy. It was an unbelievable trip, and Monika worked with our limited budget to provide us with outstanding service and the trip of a lifetime. It is a trip we will never forget. We couldn't be more grateful, and we will absolutely be using the Gecko team's services again! We have recommended Gecko to friends and family... and when travel becomes safe again, post covid of course.... we will be back to Costa Rica in a heartbeat. So much love for this outstanding team.

When my friends and I decided to visit Costa Rica, I knew that my abilities as our trip planner were not up to the task. I reached out to Gecko Trail and started the planning process with Nina. She was very responsive to our needs and suggestions, was flexible when we had to postpone our trip for a year, and stuck with us through the whole process including handling some last-minute changes. Thanks to Nina and her staff, we had a smooth and wonderful vacation. The company offers such a variety of excursions and experiences that you can find whatever you're looking for. We went to Monteverde, Arenal/La Fortuna, and Puerto Viejo; the hotels were wonderful in all 3 places and so were the guides. If (when?) I come back, it will be with these guys!
