1)The self appointed slang term Costaricans chose for themselves. 2)The Embodiment of latin flavor and zest for life. A "Tico" is easily the most amazing person you will ever have the astounding pleasure of meeting. They have a very care free outlook on life guided by the "Pura Vida" saying. A tico knows good food, good women, and most of all good drink. The perfect example is their local beer "Imperial". Tico's can party, they are smart, they are charming and funny. All around damn near perfect.
"Those damn tico's sure are full of themselves."

"The only way for a tico to commit suicide is to climb to the top of his ego and jump off."
