The Costa Rican nationals are affectionately known as Ticos. As a follow up to the 7 Types of Gringos you meet in Costa Rica, we present the Tico version.

1. The Fake Rasta

Screen Shot 2016-07-15 at 8.38.37 AMThere’s a difference between being homeless and being a rasta. Unfortunately he hasn’t distinguished the two!

2. The San Jose Baller

Screen Shot 2016-07-15 at 8.40.13 AMThis is when you discover that not everybody drives a 4×4 here. She can usually be seen rolling in her BMW and letting the colones flow at the bar.

3. The Surf Instructor

Screen Shot 2016-07-15 at 8.41.03 AMHe has you surfing like a pro in less than 30 minutes. If only your junior high football coach could see you now.

4. The Salsa Master

Screen Shot 2016-07-15 at 8.41.56 AMPretty sure this Tico came into the world dancing. Relax, stay loose, keep drinking and they’ll make you look like a star on the dance floor even if you have 2 left feet.

5. The Perfect English Speaker

Screen Shot 2016-07-15 at 8.43.31 AMThey told you everybody here speaks English, but they didn’t warn you some of the Ticos speak it better than you do!
