female costarican="tica"
male costarican="tico"
Plural="ticos".

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."

Is the most sexy guy 😍 you will ever meet. He is loyal and kind. Cares for the ones nearest to him. He is understanding and patient. The most loving man ever. Has a big heart ❤. Tico is the husband material 🤵🏽💍. If you are lucky enough to get his attention keep him forever. He is one of a kind. Is very funny in his strange lame humor which only makes him cuter. Tico is the kind of man that you always want to have by your side. He knows how to cheer you up and put a smile on your face 😊. He is the kind that always tries to make your life less complicated by helping you out in any way he can. Tico is the perfect man.
Wow that Tico guy is so fine.
