First, welcome and thanks for visiting our site. We're all pretty excited here at MrTico HQ to have celebrated our 5th Anniversary.
So you'd like to know more about MrTico and why we're here?
MrTico Costa Rica Travel Specialist is a professional high performance travel company-- that’s our generic pitch anyways.
The company was started in early 2007 by Costa Rica adventure travel professionals and founders Vince Lamain and Matias Flores. Since that beginning we have been working, researching, designing, operating and overseeing Costa Rica trips to make sure that we bring you what we feel are the most memorable Costa Rica travel experiences at the most competitive prices on the market.
The motivation for MrTico grew over the last few years. The Costa Rica travel industry started to be overwhelmed by large corporate
companies and travel professionals were having a hard time getting their ideas heard and it seemed like the industry was more about making money than it was about listening, designing and innovating great trips.
Our goal is to remain a small, grass roots company. A company capable of listening to the travelers and taking their dreams of what they would like to see and experience on their trips and making them a reality, and to help bring back that sense of personalized service; and in return provide us with sense of professional accomplishment.
We're not in it for the money, status, or market domination; we're simply here for you, our fellow adventure spirited people and to do all we can to make your time in Costa Rica as fun as possible.
5 Year Anniversary
We're proud to say that over the past five years Mr. Tico has grown to a respectable business within the Costa Rican travel community. We've served many travellers, and will continue serving with the utmost care and dedication to have you experience the best Costa Rica has to offer.

We keep all costs as low as possible without jeopardizing your safety and the degree of excitement and service. We are proud to say we are one of the most, if not the most affordable travel agencies in Costa Rica, offering a high standard of service and many years of experience.

How it all came about
MrTico is the creation of a couple of adventure travel enthusiasts who love Costa Rica and who wish to share their love and respect for this unique country. We are a simple, down to earth, small company with a very valuable asset: firsthand knowledge of Costa Rica.
Having worked as naturalist and adventure travel guides in the Costa Rican tourism field for over 20 years combined, we know the routes, we have slept in the hotel beds, eaten in the restaurants, descended the canyons, navigated the rapids, biked the trails and much, much more. Our biggest asset is our education, which includes professional training in tourism and leisure management, environmental sustainability, business, first aid, vertical rescue, swift water rescue, naturalism and more.
Above anything MrTico is about building good relationships with our clients and by addressing their concerns and providing them with amazing travel experiences at great value for their money, in turn allowing us to work and play in this amazing land, continuously gaining first hand knowledge of Costa Rica.
We hope you enjoy surfing our website and we wish you the best, unique Costa Rica experience on your future trip!
