Thanks to the generous donations received!

Thanks to the generous donations received from followers of Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica Destination Guide and Gecko Trail Costa Rica we received during the last week, Gecko was able to organize distribution of 30 food packages and clothes to the victims of the recent flood in the canton of Talamanca in Costa Rica.

We decided to support older people and single mums in the communities of Sixaola and Gandoca. We have reliable contacts there who helped us handing over the packages to the right people. In pouring rain, Tamara from the Gecko sales team, together with Manuel, Gecko Trail guide and driver, handed out the packages directly to the affected families. Thank you so much to everybody who supported us by donating and make it possible to help those 30 families.

We keep collecting money, clothes, blankets, sheets etc. as the damages are bad and several families will need further help in order to be able to go back to a normal life. If you like to make a donation via Paypal, please send money to or at the Puerto Viejo donation page. For bank transfers or donations of cash or items, please contact us via messenger, e-mail ( or visit us in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca at the Mulitcentro, inside the Pleasure Ride office.
