Geckoes Lodge Review

Impeccable service gives this place an edge among the area's handful of set-back-in-the-woods lodgings. The engaging British-Dutch couple who owns the property took care to limit the impact of constructing two secluded hardwood guesthouses on this onetime cacao plantation. One house has one bedroom, the second has two bedrooms to accommodate four people; both have a full living room and kitchen Wi-Fi, and a private plunge pool and barbecue round out the offerings, all unexpected touches in a setting such as this. The owners are onsite if you need them, yet are far enough away, as is the other house, such that your closest neighbors are the agoutis, monkeys, and toucans that populate the property.
