We booked a 2 hour side-by-side ATV tour with the Tico Tours rep that was onsite at Casa Conde del Mar (super convenient)! They brought the buggy right to the front of our hotel and the trails were really close. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was actual off-roading that required a bit of skill and the need...

There was a variety of sights to be seen on the one day trip to Nicaragua. The scenery was amazing, customs on the way in was seamless, the trip to the volcano was a unique experience for us. A wonderful lunch was provided, there was time to walk around Granada, and the speedboat / monkey tour was more fun than... More

Booked the 2 hour ATV tour. Yesler was a great guide with lots of information and a little comic too, which made the day fun. The views were amazing and the private beach was absolutely beautiful! Fun tour! Did not have advance reservations. Called in the morning and they were very accommodating by taking us on a private afternoon tour.... More

We contacted Tico Tours when we were staying at Ocotal Beach in Costa Rica. We knew we could see sites near Rincon de la Vieja on our own, but a week's experience also taught us that it can be very difficult to find your way to what you ae looking for in the Guanacaste region. Our guides, Hansel and Barry... More

We loved this excursion! The tour bus picked up our party of 9 right on time from our rented villa. The ride from Playa Panama was a little over an hour, with a nice stop for bakery on the way. The horseback ride was excellent, the horses all very well trained. The zipline was amazing- very high up but felt... More

This excursion was absolutely wonderful from beginning to end. Our guide - Hansel - was extremely knowledgeable and fun. From visiting a beautiful waterfall to the drive through the countryside to our hike at the volcano and across hanging bridges, the entire day was exciting. The lunch provided at the volcano was delicious. The bridges were amazing and gave you... More

The Miravalles tour with Tico Tours, which we did from Hermosa, was the most challenging we did on our Costa Rican holiday. We are active over-sixties and managed the tour without too much difficulty. The first part of the tour is the volcano hike. In order to reach the starting point, you are pulled in a open-sided carriage by tractor... More

Joel in our hotel was the most helpful, charming, agent in Casa Conde Resort who took care of everything and went above and beyond to ensure we had taken precautions to have safe, fun adventures. Our guide for the riverboat tour, Hansel, was the best! His knowledge of the area, the wildlife and his expertise in bird watching was paramount!... More

Myself and two friends recently stayed at the Casa Conde Beach Front Hotel, where there is a Tico tours desk. We approached Joel to help us with booking some tours and he was amazingly helpful, very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. We initially booked one tour, but after going on the first one we booked another. Joel... More
