People from costa rica.
female costarican="tica"
male costarican="tico"
Plural="ticos".

"Costa Ricans are called "ticos" because they add this word as a suffix in order to create a diminutive. In other words, instead of saying "blanquito" (small, white), they might say "blanquitico" or "blanquititico", which means the same thing"
