Very pleased that Mr. Tico was able to accommodate and change a tour on last minute notice without any additional fees. We had private drivers for most of our trip. The drivers were all polite and punctual.”

“2 out of 3 accommodations were OK. 3rd accommodation in Manuel Antonio was not satisfactory but upon reclamation, it was improved with a switch to another room. Thank you. All guides were excellent, very knowledgeable and professional. Generally speaking everything went well and we had a very good experience with MrTico. We will recommend to others.”
Danny T., Virginia, USA
“The customer care and response time was impeccable. The itinerary could not have been better- gave us all the information we required and more. The accommodations were fantastic. From the really chilled out Shawandha Lodge and fabins at Finca Exotica to the luxurious Springs & Spa Resort and the Tree House Boutique Hotel, the variation in accommodations was vast but the quality remained fantastic throughout. The activities and guides were set out and run very professionally. The fun-loving positive attitude of the guides was addictive. The arranged transportation was clean, courteous, efficient, and on-time. Impeccable.
This experience goes down as one of the best vacations we have had to date. Vince and Matias ensured we wanted for nothing throughout the stay and kept us informed of upcoming details to the events planned throughout our 17 day stay in beautiful costa Rica. From conception to delivery the service was outstanding. I would highly recommend their services to anyone pondering on visiting this wonderful country.”
Adrian R., London, UK
“The support of the staff was very cordial and informative. Especially, when our arrival flight was delayed which caused us to miss our connecting flight to San Jose. Arrangements were made to transport us to our hotel in the early morning hours.The hotels that were chosen were excellent and the daily excursions, with knowledgeable, extremely friendly and helpful guides, were fun and exciting. All drivers were excellent and again very knowledgeable and informative on the different areas of the country that we passed through. Our experience with the service and assistance of the Mr. Tico staff was excellent. I would have no problem recommending Mr. Tico to any friend who would be interested in travelling to Costa Rica.”
Joe & Debra C., Connecticut, USA
“I had a great time in Costa Rica, thanks in great part to Mr. Tico. Their services exceeded expectations, their guidance and advice was very helpful, and the activities they planned were excellent. Since I had such a great time, and the country is so beautiful, I will definitely go back to Costa Rica and would use Mr. Tico again to plan my itinerary. I would also recommend them to anyone visiting the country. Gracias Mr. Tico!!”

“I was very pleased with my experience!! Vince was very helpful, our guides were friendly and fun. We went horseback riding with Hymie. He was very good!! Even when I had a panic attack and had to get off my horse. The snorkel guides were the best!! They brought up puffer fish and star fish for us to see. Overall a great experience and I will use Mr. Tico again!!”

“I’m really glad we went with MrTico; they were brilliant. Not only did they put together the package we requested, but they did so within the framework of our budget. They have excellent contacts with hotels, tour operators, and guides. We were very pleased with our vacation, and really feel that MrTico did a wonderful job in providing the Costa Rica trip we always wanted. Thanks Vince and Matías!”
Christina T., Colorado, USA
“The hosts at hotel Vista Pacifico were very friendly and accomodating, Costa Verde was a very nice hotel and its restaurant was great. The tours were professional and enjoyable and all drivers were courteous and on time. Especially the first driver to Jaco and showed us many interesting sites. Our Mr. Tico experience and vacation was perfect, very professional and reliable. You can use my email for referrals.”
Lewis D., Iowa, USA
“I was very impressed other than a few glitches. All transportation was great. The only problem was the flight into Punta Islita was canceled and the drive was terrible. We drove through a washed out road where the current was pushing the vehicle. All activities were perfect and the hotels were amazing.”
Nicole L., Virginia, USA
“Cliff and I wanted to thank you guys for setting everything up for us. We had a wonderful time in Costa Rica. We were very pleased with our hotels, the activities were awesome (especially the zip lining). Not one driver was late, all of them came on time on the dot. We would definitely recommend MrTico to anyone going to Costa Rica.”
Mike S., California, USA
[…]overall the trip was very pleasant, we had a really great time. I wish there was more cultural and historical artifacts, buildings, churches, etc. in Costa Rica, however, the real draw of the country is the natural scenery which is amazing. Matias was a great guide and showed us things that we would have never seen on a group tour or by ourselves[…]
Seth Z. J., Florida, USA
“Matias and I worked very well together; he was adaptive, precise with our goals, and consistently helpful. Our itinerary was terrific- we were very satisfied. The transportation throughout the trip was great! Thank you for your help!”
Matthew L., Washington D.C, USA
“Your office team is very helpful, knowledgable and fast responding. Our vacation and overall experience with MrTico was great and therefore we higly recommend MrTico to anyone planning to visit Costa Rica!”
Somkiat P., Oregan, USA
“[…]the guides were very knowledgeable and the tour provided our family opportunities to see different parts of Costa Rica and the culture. We enjoyed the entire trip[…]”
Norma B., Texas, USA
“All of the people who transported us, and who helped us in the scheduled activities at the resort were great. All cheerful, engaging, and exemplary of Pura Vida. All private drivers were friendly and efficient. The one from the Liberia Hitlon to Potrero (I think his name was Paul) was hilarious! Really great.
I hope we get to return to see more of Costa Rica, and we will happily use Mr. Tico again.”
