Go Tico! Costa Rica is a small, Madison, Wisconsin-based organization directed by two Costa Rica-loving Midwesterners (one by chance, one by choice). Go Tico! provides coordination and hosting of small-group travel to incredible, off-the-beaten-path locations in Costa Rica. We coordinate a variety of travel experiences to Costa Rica, including student educational trips, Spanish and cultural immersion, family vacations, international service trips, professional retreats, English as a second language travel retreats (yes, you read that right - with our English-speaking family and certified English Instructor co-director!), and customized travel opportunities to this amazing country.
We want all travelers with Go Tico! to become part of our family: we keep our travel groups small and we design our trip with specific objectives from Spanish immersion to biodiversity exploration. As co-owners, we get to know each and every one of our travelers, as we coordinate your trip details ourselves and often do the hosting and if need be, translating as well, from airport pickup to all your site visits. For school and small-group travel, we'll often meet families and travelers ahead of time at in-person informational and pre-departure meetings. We truly love Costa Rica and are thrilled to be able to share our love of the country with you!
Go Tico! believes that the best way to explore Costa Rica is to truly live it. We have deep connections in the country and are excited to engage you in those wonderful and welcoming areas we love. Let us be your local connection, both in the states and abroad that takes you on the Costa Rican adventure you have been waiting for:
