A very enjoyable day out with Bernal: we enjoyed the lunch at the old hacienda (and having the chance to make our own corn tortillas). The river tour was wonderful. We saw many kinds of birds (never knew that Costa Rica has more than 800 species), big American crocodiles and a troupe of white-faced capuchin monkeys. The lunch and snacks... More

The tour to Miravalles was not very far from our location. Only about 1 hour drive. Our guide, Marco, spoke excellent English. The hike up the dormant volcano was pleasant. A few in our group were nervous about the suspension bridges, but no worries. Lunch was a choice of fish, chicken, or pork. Lovely mountainside for lunch. Then an afternoon... More

We booked two excursions on Tico Tours. The first was a combination horseback, zip line, hot springs tour. Mario was not only our concierge, but went with us on the excursion. Each segment was well coordinated and we had a blast. Mario answered our questions, made jokes, and was fun to be around. This is where Mario went above and... More

The day trip to Nicaragua was amazing Juan Carlos and Camel were the best. Anytime I come back I am requesting them. Camelo was amazing, best guide ever. He kept it interesting and took great care of us. Two thumbs up

We did 3 all with Tico because their staff really personalized the tours. They were small and very unique. My wife and I speak very little spanish and that was never a problem. This company is great!!!

I booked Tico Tours prior to arriving in Costa Rica. I do not like booking thru a large tour company in a large resort due to the fact that you don't receive a great overall experience.

Bernal has a very excellent tour company. Each driver for airport transfers, the ride to Playa del Coco, the Buggy adventure, and Jes, our driver to Borinquen, were all so professional and also very friendly and helpful.
