Spend a day paying tribute to the diversity of this nations spirit.
Celebrate the Tico Farmers & Cattle Ranchers as they share their stories through traditional dance, folklore and cuisine.
It’s the dust, the mud, the man and the bull. It’s the roar of the crowd, the rhythm of a culture, music in the wind.
It’s the white of his knuckle in the mist. It’s a feeling, it’s a knowing that each man is good in the sight of a great spirit.
But, don’t mess with the bull!
The origins of some of the greatest traditions of Costa Rica were born amongst the tico ranchers. Today, as one of the locals, get ready to party at a traditional “fiesta”!

“My wife and I wanted to travel through Chile, Bolivia and Peru and were slightly daunted by the logistics of organising such a varied trip.John Resse, USA
Chris was incredibly helpful not only mapping out the most exciting and engaging trip, but also using his extensive personal knowledge of the best things to do. They were reassuringly efficient in organising the trip, monitoring how we were doing during the trip and making adjustments to improve the trip.Tracy Williams, UK
Chris’s passion and enthusiasm encouraged us to do things we wouldn't have thought to do, which gave us fantastic memories of the trip of a lifetime.”Tony Thomas, USA
