My brother Alex and I are partners and owners at Tachiz Travel in Costa Rica. We are a very dedicated, unique and personalized 24/7 high-end travel service here in Costa Rica. We also constantly travel throughout the country and really do get to know and stay up to date with what only Costa Rica can offer and what it cannot offer at any given time.
Our company is focused on the high end, highly discerning, special interest, nature and adventure travelers to Costa Rica. One of the unique advantages of our small, focused, and dedicated Team Tachiz Travel here in Costa Rica is that we, the owners Alex and Francisco, will personally host you from our initial phone conversation until you leave our country after having enjoyed a life-enhancing, mutually nourishing and unique "gourmet" travel experience. We are Costa Rican born and raised in Barva, the oldest settlement of the Central Valley. We were Foreign High School Exchange Students to the State of Oregon before earning our degrees in Business Administration. Upon our return to Costa Rica, we started working for the pioneers of ecotourism in Costa Rica and we worked extensively and passionately in truly all capacities before starting our own Team Tachiz Travel Costa Rica in 2002. We both have served in the young Costa Rican Inbound Travel Industry since the late 80's.
During the course of the last 4 decades and as a natural consequence of our working A to Z in this industry, we have become friends and developed profound and authentic personal connections with most of the current managers and owners of the hotels, tourism suppliers and communities' members who are key for our crafted unique itineraries. They help us in making sure you enjoy a wonderful Costa Rica experience.
