WOW! Let me start off by saying that Geckoes Lodge was by far our favorite place to stay while in Costa Rica!! My husband and I spent 8 days for our honeymoon in June 2016; we stayed part of the time in Puerto Viejo at a couple of places, and the other part in the La Fortuna area. Of all... More

We stayed at Geckoes for an amazing week and can't wait to return. This place is a garden paradise, a secluded oasis just a 5 minute drive to a vibrant, multi-cultural, laid-back part of the country that you shouldn't miss. We've been to many places in Costa Rica, but Geckoes is, in our opinion, one of the most peaceful and... More

My husband and I spent 6 nights in May in the smaller bungalow for our honeymoon. It was lovely and exactly as described. We came to Puerto Viejo looking for a laid back experience with a mix of jungle adventures and good food and that's exactly what we got! Geckoes lodge is a very nice property, tucked away from the...

My husband and I spent 9 days and 8 nights at Geckoes lodge for our honeymoon. We had planned on doing all kinds of activities during the day but when we arrived, the lodge was sooo AMAZING (understatement), that we spent the majority of our time there. The house itself was immaculate and romantic. The dipping pool was much larger... More

This place was the picture perfect idea of a vacation. It was away from the town which was perfect for privacy. But only a 5 minuet drive to Puerto Viejo! Tom and Zoe where wonderful and the house was simply amazing! We will definitely be back soon!

Tom and Zoe, the owners of Geckoes Lodge are so awesome and helpful. Its like staying at home away from home in paradise. The wildlife is spectacular and the privacy in the forest is priceless. Extremely comfortable unlike a high-rise where it takes 20 minutes to get to your car and go eat, sight see etc. It takes 30 seconds... More

Very friendly hosts. The house was very clean and spacious. There were plenty of dishes etc so we could eat meals at the house if we wanted. Usually we just had breakfast at the house then took a short, maybe 10 minute, drive to Puerto Viejo. Plenty of good restaurants there, especially the Bread And Chocolate restaurant. There were a...

Geckoes Lodge is a very private upscale getaway in the Costa Rican rain forest just out of the town of Puerto Viejo. The property consists of two wonderful guest houses and the owner's house, all hidden in the rainforest away from the traffic, yet close enough to be in town in under 10 minutes. The guest houses are bright, cheerful... More

We stayed 8 nights at Geckoes Lodge in Casa del Bosque - a little cottage right by the jungle with an open outdoor kitchen and a plunge pool. It was absolutely fantastic. First of all, Puerto Viejo is a great little town with so many delicious restaurants and a very international crowd. It's surrounded by jungle and amazing beaches. Geckoes... More
