Six friends had a blast in Costa Rica. I booked Tico Rides with Louis. Not to be confused with the other company Tico Ride. Tico Rides was prompt and easy to get in touch with using the what’s App. I could chat with Louis and he was always quick to respond. We had Tico Rides pick us up at San Jose hotel and take us to Dominical. The driver took us to a fruit stand on the way as well as Jaco beach where we could have lunch or just a beer on the way. Comfortable Mercedes travel van, lots of space and large windows for site seeing. Tico Rides also picked us up in La Fortuna and brought us back to San Jose. Louis was very informative and stopped often to explain things we were seeing. He was fun and gave us a great tour back to San Jose. Stopped to let us shop etc. Price for the day was only $200 for six people. Very reasonable. I highly recommend Tico Rides. Very dependable, quick to respond, very accommodating and on time.

Because we couldn't get a flight closer to Ojochal we had to take a taxi from San Jose airport to Ojochal which is about 3 1/2 hours away. Luis was very easy to talk to through WhatsApp while we were planning in the states. When we arrived Raphael was waiting for us at the airport. It was a great ride! The vehicle was roomy and comfortable. Raphael was very informative and taught us many things about the area. We stopped at a great place for lunch that had awesome local cuisine and a great gift shop. He also stopped at the crocodile river for us to take pictures. We were kind of nervous going into a foreign country not speaking the language and not knowing if we would make it to our destination but Raphael spoke English very well and took us right to the house. You can't go wrong with them! Thanks again Luis and Raphael!!

Luis Diego and his family are very professional and helpful.
We were picked up at the airport in a very comfortable van and taken to the Airbnb right at their house a very nice apartment.

They showed us Manuel Antonio Park and the beaches along the Pacific Ocean.
We tried the typical dishes and stopped along the way to buy local fruits. They are very professional and courteous.
I will definitely use their service again.

Our driver was very helpful in navigating the border crossing to Panama. Door-to-door service to anywhere along the Pacific Coastal road.

WOW!!! Just WOW. I have been on tours, but this was an exceptional tour. I traveled from Playa Flamingo, Guanacaste Costa Rica to San Jose, Costa Rica to take a tour with a couple of friends to Panama City, Panama. I found this tour company, TicoRides, on Facebook and wasn't sure about it, but the reviews were great. There are no words to describe how GREAT this tour was. It was a feeling of being with the family members you want to travel with. Luis Diago and his driver were outstanding. The attention to detail was second to none. There was a tour agenda, but it was flexible enough that when we wanted to make a slight detour, Luis was able to make it happen. Our tour was small enough that he was able to make the changes and we were able to go on a coffee tour in Boquete, Panama. What a gem to visit. This was not on the original tour, but Luis made it happen because we requested it. So when he says he customizes his tours, this is a great example of it. I highly recommend booking ANY tour this company offers. I will be on others with him for sure. Just a little funny side note....the age-old question, "are we there yet?" was asked many times on this trip. With a smile on his face, Luis would say, "we are closer." Indeed we were always closer than we had been. We learned to just enjoy the ride and the spectacular views knowing we were closer. ;-)

Luis & his team (including his daughter Sharon) were the best choice ever to go on trip to Panama... we got through customs seamlessly, sailed down expansive highways in comfort and style and stopped at the perfect time for stretch and snack breaks along the way! His smile is as big as his heart and his passion for culture and architecture took us to some really great spots. And he has an eye for “must take picture” spots, we actually think he likes taking selfies more than us! Our pics captured our trip wonderfully and we’ll have found memories of asking, “are we there yet?!” and his classic response with a sly smile, “we’re close...” spoken like a true parent and experienced touring professional! Pura Vida Tico Rides, I’ll for sure travel with you again!
