    • Whether you wanna trek the Inca trail, cruise the evolutionary wonderland of the Galapagos or salsa your way through the backstreets of Cuba, Latin America’s intoxicating rhythms and friendly locals will win you over with one beat of a Honduran drum.
    • So jump on a Geckos South or Central America trip and hit the peaks of Patagonia, bathe under a full moon in Ecuador, explore the cloud forests of Costa Rica, chill out in Colombia, climb Maya ruins in Guatemala and lose yourself to the passion and the paradise.
    • Sporting goods:
      The Aztects played a ball game known as tlachtli where the losers were sacrificed to the gods.

      About 20,000 different types of spiders are hiding underneath tables and above doorways in Costa Rica.
    • Hitching in Cuba:

    Mexico Highlights

    As I have now done six tours with Geckos, and have been especially happy with all of them, I will no doubt be looking to do some more. I like the style, and being a lone traveller there's that very comfortable feeling of security mixed with leisure and freedom, and I'm always quick to recommend Geckos to any like minded people I meet.

    It was my first time doing a planned group tour, and i was quite impressed. There is no way i would be able to experience the things i experienced if it wasnt for this tour.

    It's hard to have it feel rushed , when there's so much to do.! Must note the quality of the food was fantastic. Though I never experienced any seafood and we on the water...?
