Everyone else said how wonderful Tico Tours was. Bernal, Juan Carlos and Jose were walking encyclopedias that became part of our family. Costa Rica is great but it is a lot more ( Pura Vida)they showed us and explained. "My Amigos" mada CR a unbelievably vacation, we would have never seen or done half as much in CR thank you.

“Grand day out...”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We had a great time with our visit to Palo Verde National Park and boat trip on the Tempisque River. Juan Carlos, Jose and Justino were fabulous guides, pointing out things we wouldn't have noticed, and explaining things we did. Really informative and fun trip, well worth it.

“Unforgettable memories!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

This review is very late, but we will never forget our time with Bernal, Jonathan, and Marco. My wife and I went to Costa Rica for our Honeymoon in July '12. Bernal and his team picked us up from the airport and took care of our every need when we went on excursions with them. We did a zip lining tour, horseback riding, and mud bathes. Bernal and crew speak fluent English and they are very knowledgeable about Costa Rican history as well as the local surroundings.

While we were there, Bernal's younger sister was on a little break from school, so Bernal brought her along with our tour group. She was scared to do the zip lines and we all encouraged her to take the "leap of faith." It was so great to see that Bernal takes the time to take care of you the way he takes care of his own family. A big plus in our book.

We will never forget our time in Playa Hermosa, and Bernal's team is a big part of that.
