We booked the horseback riding, zip lining and white water rafting through Tico Tours before arriving in Costa Rica. Juan Carlos and Marcos arrived on time and were very pleasant.. the van was super clean and comfortable! We spent the entire day with them and couldn't have felt more comfortable and welcomed! The next day we went with another tour company (to remain anonymous) and let's just say we less impressed. We wanted to do one more tour before we left and since Juan Carlos and Marcos recommended the ATV tour of the 5 beaches that's what we went with and we were lucky enough to have them as our guides again. We had a great day and are very happy about our experience. On top of it all they offered to take us souvenir shopping at their friend's shop because it was more reasonable then other places- they weren't lying, we stocked up on gifts. If I go back I will most definitely use Tico Tours again!

Tico Tours is like Disneyworld. Everybody tells you how great it is and it lives up to the reputation. Bernal and Tico Tours lived up to all these wonderful reviews. As one reviewer put it, he became part of our family. From the moment Bernal picked us up from the airport, we felt like we were getting the best CR had to offer. He got us hooked up with a great captain and crew for fishing and showed us some great lesser known restaurants. It never mattered what time or what stupid request we had, Bernal and his team delivered.

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.

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.

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.
