I booked an ATV beach hoping tour and it didn't disappoint in the beach hoping aspect. I do have to warn people though if you are looking for an Adrenaline filled ATV tour this is not the tour for you. The ATVs are manual so the guide leading the pack holds his fingers up depending on what gear he wants... More

A great guide made this day trip totally worth it. Atel, our guide, was funny, informative, helpful and thoughful. Jes was the driver, and did a great job driving through the wet, winding mountain roads with no guardrails. We did the Vandara tour, and it was great fun horesback riding, ziplining (9 lines through the jungle), watersliding, and then hot... More

We worked with Mario to schedule an ATV beach hopping tour for our family (including our kids, ages 11 and 6) during our visit to Playa Conchal last week. He made sure everything was lined up, and we walked out of our hotel Saturday morning to find our ATVs lined up and waiting. We had a great time with our... More

Very pleased with Tico Tours. Marco, our guide/driver was very friendly and funny and he made us feel very comfortable around him. He provided so much insight to Costa Rican culture and provided so much details of our excursion. This Tour company is very well organized, on time and professional. We felt safe in their care and they provided great... More

My family and I just got back from an unbelievable vacation to Costa Rica and Tico Tours was a huge part of our fantastic experience. Several months before our trip, I was emailing back and forth with Mario regarding all of the different type of tours that would be good for a family of 7 with 5 teenage children. He... More

We did the Vandara private tour June 22nd. Eittel was our guide and promptly picked us up at Hotel Mangaby for our adventure. On the way to our destination Eittel would explain to us the trees, birds, volcanos and a great little history lesson. The tour was amazing, zip lines galore. The hot spring pool was so relaxing and the... More

Small group tours...pay a little more but to go to Nicaragua, it was worth it. The guide was certified and very professional. Breakfast was not that good, but the lunch was very good. Saw a lot of places in one day, no need to go back again. Stood on the edge of a active volcano, a once in a life... More

Marco Elizonda was the best guide ever!!!!! My husband and I were here on our honeymoon and Marco gave us the most wonderful day. It started off with horseback riding, zip lining, hot springs and mud bath. Then we went to the famous gift shop and coffee center. Best day of my life! Elizonda was extremely accommodating and nice, really... More

Had a great time with the side x side 2 hour tour! We went through a village and across the tops of 2 mountains. Saw amazing wildlife and totally exceeded my expectations. The guides were fun and the charge was well worth it! HIGHLY recommended.
