Had an adventure at Borinquen Resort via Tico Tours. They will pick you up, take you to your destination and give you lots of information about Costa Rica.
Thank you Bernall and Marcos at Tico Tours.
See you next year!

We just wanted to say thank you again for making our trip to Costa Rica so fantastic. We had an excellent time on both the Borinquen canopy tour and the Tenorio rafting trip. Bernal (the owner) and JC were outstanding guides and took excellent care of us and the driver, Jose, was dependable and friendly. Both tours were the highlight of our trip and the warm and knowledgeable service matched our experience at The Four Seasons Hotel. Everyone we know who is planning a trip to Costa Rica will get our recommendation for Tico Tours. Thank you again.

Perfecto..Tico Tours blew away my expectations. The first tour we did was the Arenal tour. Our guides were Juan Carlos and Jose. They were excellent..from the introduction  we knew we were in good hands. They treated us like family which made the tour even more memorable. When they picked us up, the informed us of the agenda and if we were ok with it. Throughout the drive they kept asking us if we needed to stop for restroom breaks as we also stopped when they had a secret spots to see howler monkeys, sloth's or other animals during the drive. We would often see other tour buses driving by missing the bonus stops. They knew a lot about the area and what we were seeing during the drive. When we got to Arenal Juan Carlos was our guide. He knew an incredible amount about the area's animals, insects and plant life. Juan Carlos and Jose made sure we wee having a good time. They provide laughter and treated us as someone should be treat, as family. Juan Carlos and Jose made it a point that it was our tour and they were not going home until we were happy.  Thank you Juan Carlos and Jose for making our trip more enjoyable. Mucho Gusto y Muchas Gracias.

Our other tour was to Nicaragua with Eric and Luis. Again perfecto! Like our Arenal tour Eric and Luis kept us informed and made every attempt to make us happy. Pulling over of any picture was not a problem with them. The tour evolved a smoking volcano, cruise through Granada city and a boat ride through the the water ways in a federal parks. Along the way were a couple of secrets which I won't share. But the secrets were amazing. As we entered Nicaragua were learned about the history of the country as well as present stuff.  Erica and Luis were excellent. They showed us a good time and again like the other team treated us like family and not tourists. They were fun and opened up to us as people.  Tico Tours kept the tour group small so we were able to move at our groups pace and got that one on one attention.

Thank you Tico Tours for a great time.

I would first like to say what a great time we had in the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica. One of the things that made it so good was Tico Tours Guanacaste. Bernal, Lillian, Joseph and especially Marcos, made our trip the best. We did three tours, and used them for transportation to and from the airport. We did the beach ATV trip with Bernal and we received great service, a wonderful ride and a really great pineapple for a snack along the way. Marcos took us on our Borinquen Extreme Adventure. Marcos also took us on our Tenorio Rafting adventure and lunch which was out of this world. If we asked to stop at a store, they were more than happy to do that for us. They always had cool drinks in the transport vehicles, juice, water, and beer. Kudos to the entire staff at Tico Tours!!!!
