About
We will drive through back roads, sugar cane fields, local towns, see the locals digging up the sand used for the concrete… An unforgettable cultural experience. Next stop we will visit an elderly “Casona" a beautiful old house that belonged to 3 former presidents of Costa Rica… This venerable construction will tell the story of the Guanacaste cowboys or "sabaneros" who lived way before cars, cell phones or internet by the midst of the 1800s in a faraway era of colonial Costa Rica. We will then get in a covered motor boat through the Tempisque River and will cruise Palo Verde National Park looking for wildlife such as monkeys, crocodiles, iguanas, all kind of exotic birds, bats. Enjoy of some of our most precious traditions such as the “oxoperated sugar mill” (trapiche) where they grind the cane with oxen. Freshly cane juice will be offered to you to taste.

The hacienda and the river
Jun 2021
Tico Tours Guanacaste's Cultural & Safari Boat is a half day treat. Our very educated guide picked us up in the morning and made us feel happy and relaxed immediately. We drove past Filadelfia and learnt about this city's history and relationship to the Tempisque River. On your way to the 100+ year old hacienda, stopping for a picture at the Space Radar is a must. Costa Rica is a delightful mixture of hight tech and nature conservancy. We felt at home enjoying the coffee, rum, sugar cane and tortillas cultural experience. The church owl was the cherry on top. On the boat safari the exuberant vegetation and peace of the Tempisque River would have been enough treat and we saw monkeys, birds, basilisks, crocodiles in many stages of life and even bats! Back at the hacienda for lunch we had traditional costarrican casado with beans made with love and sweet ripe plantains that melt in your mouth...

What a fun trip! We got to see the 'natural' side of Costa Rica traveling through the sugar cane fields and small villages. Trip down the Tempisque was awesome, teeming with wildlife (unnerving if you don't like crocodiles as there were A LOT of crocodiles). But our boat captain, Manual had it all under control and was able to get us around and helped point out a number of different types of birds, monkeys , bats etc. Then it was off to lunch at the Coyote Ranch which was awesome. Good food and atmosphere. Got lessons on local pottery and the extraction of sugar cane juice! Our driver, Christian was excellent. Strongly recommend.

Excellent tour of the culture and the Tempisque river that flows through Palo Verde. The tour was longer than expected and our guide was warm, patient and friendly and very knowledgeable especially about the wildlife on the river. A great way to spend 6 hours!

We can not emphasize enough how great our experience with this organization has been right from the start. We have done four tours so far and look forward to having Luigi customize another great trip before we leave. Special thanks to Marco, Big Marco, Mario, Yuon Carlos and all the special people who have shared your country’s history with generosity and laughter. Luigi again you’re the best. There is not a tour that will disappoint.

This trip was really good because Marco our guide was very kind and funny. He was also very good at explaining things such as the sugarcane factories or how they grow cantaloupes. Once we were on the river we got onto some decently sized boats and left for the river. We saw all kinds of beautiful creatures such as a white faced monkey dip it’s tail in the water it was amazing.
