If you’re looking for a more local Costa Rican experience surrounded by nature.. then El Gecko is the perfect spot. The owners were VERY wonderful and helpful. The accomodation here is simple yet beautiful. We did the bioluminescence tour and it was well worth the money. From the accomodation you can do a 1 hour walk that leads to a totally secluded and magical beach. 2 nights was perfect for us! I would 100% stay again!
