We did the Nicaragua tour with Juan Carlos and Eric and the Palo Verde tour with Marco. I cannot say enough good things. They were on time (which has not always happened with other tour companies we've worked with here) and made the tours seem so seamless, even though I know it can't be easy to coordinate all of this....

We hired Tico Tours for airport/resort transport and a couple of day trips (Nicaragua, volcanoes, boating, rain forest, zip lines, horseback riding, mud baths, hot springs, etc). I can't say enough about their staff, wonderful people. Carlos, Eric and Marco quickly became like extended family and we loved spending time with them! They were all so much fun, knowledgeable and... More

We took the Zipline Borinquen Canopy Tour, Catamaran snorkel tours and ground transportation though their company. The attention to detail, even meeting us at the tour bus in Coco Beach after the catamaran tour was so very thoughtful. The hurricane scuttled our Palo Verde tour, but that couldn't be helped, and our safety was their main concern.

After some technical difficulties online we were able to connect with Tico Tours by phone and schedule two tours, the 4-hour side-by-side 4-seaters tour and the all day Nicaragua tour. Both tours were amazing. Our drivers and tour guides were fun and friendly, happy to answer questions and share information with us. The vans showed up on-time to take us... More

We went with Tico Tours to horseback ride, zip line, volcanic mud bath and hot springs and LOVED every minute of it. Marco was the BEST! He was our guide and was very professional and made our tour great. His English and Spanish are perfect so we understood everything. He and Kenneth, our driver, were more than happy to stop... More

We just got back from Playa Hermosa. Marco and Yes from Tico Tours were our guides for the Arenal Volcano excursion. Because it was in the slow season, they were our private tour guides. We had so much fun. They were knowledgeable and entertaining and we enjoyed everything about the day. We would definitely recommend booking excursions with Tico Tours.... More

Tico Tours arranged our transportation from and to the Liberia airport. We had reserved the jungle tour and the all day Tico Tour for our first two days in Costa Rica. Our tour guides were awesome and talked about the area, people, tours, etc the entire trip. Very educational as well as having fun on the tours. The jungle tour... More

I had used Tico Tours before and had such a good time I thought I would try them again. Once again Bernal exceeded my expectations. We took the side by side four wheeler tour and had a blast. Bernal filled us in with facts about Costa Rica, had an ice chest with drinks and fruit along. He took us up... More
