This is a good bakery. Lots of options. However, as a North American, don't order a pre-made meat sandwich like I did before an early morning dive trip. It's not like a sub sandwich we're used to; it was an odd "meat spread" or meat...More

All I heard everyday, "Can we go to Tico's?" Stopped almost daily on our way to the beach for some goodies and then usually on our way for fresh bread and pastries for breakfast. Nice staff, great prices and amazing chicken empanadas. Would definitely recommend...More

This place isn't fancy at all, and it's always hot. But, I can't seem to go wrong with the family by stopping by there. Nothing extra fancy, but donuts, breads, and other items that seem to make people happy.

A very nice variety of pastries and breads. Open early and easy access. You have to know enough Spanish to converse with them though.

The bread culture in Costa Rica is so pour but the Tico's bakery is probably the best traditional bakery in Coco. There are some good pastries and good cakes.

A small pastry shop in Playa del Coco. We were looking for a coffee and pastry and this little shop was fine. Not a huge selection but our pastries were fresh and tasty. Good coffee, inexpensive.

We bought many items here, all fresh cooked daily that we took on our day trips and for snacks for our room. Great coconut and banana bread. Also they open at 4:30 am for breakfast. Don't let the outside fool you. A great bakery +

Good variety of great bakery items. Coffee machine for a "gas station latte" or a traditional coffee pot for black coffee. Would rate it over 5 if we could.
