We had a group of 12 and went on two separate tours; the Palo Verde Jungle Tour, and the Rio Perdido and Aerial Canyon Adventure. Tico Tours also shuttled our group to and from the airport. They were very accommodating and made the trip very special.

We had such wonderful experiences with Tico Tours! We went with a small wedding party (8 somewhat dissipated and enthusiastic adults in our 30’s-40’s) to Playa Hermosa and did three different tours with Tico Tours during our week: Palo Verde, Sailboat & Snorkeling, & Adventure Day. Firstly, I so much appreciated their quick, thorough, and detailed emails beforehand. They explained... More

We did not do any tours with Tico, but we did get transport from the airport. They arrived on time, with a sign and even brought a car seat for my daughter (we didn't even request this)! Great service. Certainly not the cheapest, but it seems to be the going rate.

The jungle boat and cultural tours was one of the best tours we have ever taken! The guide was a rated bird watcher and was able to identify not only numerous different types of birds but he was also very knowledge about other wildlife but also very lighthearted and entertaining. Cultural tour took us to a beautiful old hilltop ranch.... More

We used Tico Tours for transfers to and from the airport and two excursions--The Rio Perdido Canyon Adventure and the Palo Verde River Boat. The drivers and guides were very helpful and courteous. It was important to them that we had a good time. The guides were full of fun information about Costa Rica and the specific tours. The drivers... More

On our recent trip to Costa Rica, we were very fortunate to have met Bernal Mata and experience 3 excursions with his company Tico Tours. We found him and his staff to be extremely fun, professional and knowledgable. We have never commented on a tour company before, but these guys blew us away and are definitely worth recommending. Our favourite... More

My family has used Bernal and his company since 2006 and we are never disappointed. Whether we have Bernal or one of his guides, we always have a good time. They are well informed, friendly, funny and delightful. I recommend Tico Tours without hesitation.
