The Herrera Brothers, Alex & Francisco
The Herrera brothers: My brother Francisco (trusted Advisor & Partner) and I, as owners at Tachiz Travel in Costa Rica, are delighted with the opportunity to personally and dedicatedly help you plan, design and deliver your Adventure of a lifetime in Costa Rica. We are a dedicated, unique and personalized 24/7 travel service. We live 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. This is very important since in Costa Rica, there are over one hundred significantly different and authentic itineraries that could be created and enjoyed. Here is a 90 second video on why travel with us:
We both have served in the young Costa Rican Inbound Travel Industry since the late 80’s. We started working for the pioneers of ecotourism in Costa Rica and we worked extensively and passionately in truly all capacities and before starting our own Team Tachiz Travel Costa Rica in 2002. Through the decades, we have orchestrated vacations for the general interest visitors and for the most discerning special interest travelers and groups of all sizes. 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. As you can imagine and more importantly, 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. They understand that we love to arrange for special surprises that are very rewarding to the visitor and to the visited. Francisco and I do understand and appreciate the fact that with your visit, you are helping us to preserve nature and social peace in Costa Rica. Watch a video on what we do:
We, of course, also worked in the world renowned Specialty Coffee Industry of Costa Rica. We travelled extensively throughout the world to promote Costa Rica and to help advice travel consultants on how to recommend Costa Rica as the special interest destination it really is. We also conducted several separate reengineering processes, implemented them and run them for the current more known, longest standing inbound travel agencies of Costa Rica including the most expensive one and also the largest one by far, not necessarily the more dedicated nor the more affordable ones of course. Perhaps most importantly, we both had the chance of hiring, training and leading teams, several of which continue to contribute to make the inbound tourism industry of Costa Rica a rewarding one for both the visitors and the visited.
Alex Herrera enjoys his constant travelling in Costa Rica with his family which includes 5 sprouts and he continues to learn and practice Taoist Tai Chi Internal Arts of Health in Heredia, Costa Rica with Blanca, of course.
Francisco loves to continuously travel around Costa Rica with his daughter. He loves nature and outdoor activities, fishing in particular. Here he is at the John Day River on the highland desert of eastern Oregon, fishing for small mouth bass.
What is Tachiz™? It is an attitude. And to us at Team Tachiz™, attitude has proved to be even more important than service when hosting and assisting visitors from abroad and in dealing with the many local suppliers through the decades. Our ¨Campesinos¨, Farm workers of Costa Rica like Mr. Francisco ¨Tachiz¨ Herrera and their attitude of genuine honest service and work ethics, inspired our logo, mission and vision. To us, it defines our direction.
