Private Driver and Vehicle

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 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.

Different operators use different vehicles with different capacities. Except where noted, the prices quoted below are valid for up to 6 persons. A higher price may be applicable for more than 6 persons as a larger vehicle may need to be used. Contact us for a price quote.

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?
