Private Van

If your schedules don’t work with the shared ride shuttle services or you’re a larger group or you just want the convenience of traveling at your own schedule and being able to make stops when you want for photos, bathroom breaks and snacks, then hiring a vehicle and driver is the way to go. This is also useful if you are transporting pets (buses and shuttle companies will not do so) or lots of luggage. Gecko Trail Adventures uses several reliable companies but not all of the drivers speak a lot of English, so you either have to practice your Spanish or communicate with sign language. If an English speaking driver is a must, please let us know and we of course are happy to book your trip accordingly. Rates are fixed for different point to point routes so you know what to expect upfront. Service is provided in comfortable air-conditioned vans, minibuses or even full-sized buses if you have a large group.

If you want to make it right off the plane and straight to the coast, a private shuttle is often the only way to make it work. Your driver will be waiting for you after immigration with a sign with your name on it! Doesn’t that make you feel like a VIP?

The project of the Code of Conduct is an initiative of the World Tourism Organization (WTO), ECPAT International and UNICEF. It seeks the participation and commitment promise of the tourism industry to disesteem and sanction the commercial sexual exploitation of children and adolescents associated with travel and tourism. In August 2003, as part of the commitment of the tourism sector to contribute to the betterment of the quality of life of the population in general and the protection of the fundamental rights of childhood and adolescence, the project of the Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children and Adolescents from Commercial Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism in Costa Rica was formed. Gecko Trail Adventures has signed the Code of Conduct and has a firm commitment to preventing sexual exploitation of children and adolescents in all our destinations within the country.
