I had an amazing time in Costa Rica. We went without booking a tour beforehand. However, when we arrived at the hotel, they were very helpful and put us in contact with Tico Tours. They helped us on the spot. 30 minutes later we were on the minivan waiting for our adventure to start. Once we got in the minivan,... More

My husband and I can't say enough good things about our tour. We did the Boringquen Adventure-Canopy Tour which we highly recommend. We rode horses up the mountain, went on 10 zip lines, and saw gorgeous waterfall. Following that we had a wonderful buffet lunch in the park. There also was a mud bath, steam room and hot springs. We... More

Tico Tours provided airport transportation both ways and took us on the Palo Verde Jungle River Boat and the Miravialles Volcano.

This was probably the best tour guide experience I have ever had. I could not recommend them more highly. Every single thing was amazing, ran so smoothly and the service was perfect.

After one week, three tours and airport transfers, the guys at Tico Tours seemed as much like family as tour-guides. We had a great time with Marco and Hansel on the Horseback/Zip Line, Jungle River Boat, and the Beach tour.

My wife and I have made several visits to Costa Rica, and, in our slightly younger days, taken a number of active adventure trips, zip lining, repelling, riding horses up the side of volcanoes.
