Unsure as we stayed in a condo close to this cafe. JW is far outside the other side of Tamarindo. If they have a shuttle to Tamarindo every place is in walking distance once you're there

.Cafe Tico is many things: it's a confortable place to sit and enjoy a rich cup of coffee on our shaded patio, or take it to go.Cafe Tico is also a gift shop, we offer a selection of gurmet coffee from small coffee farmers, honeys, jams and hot sauce made in Costa Rica. We home made bread and pastries, all the milk yogurt , butter and cheese that we use are from local farmers.
