The Herrera Brothers: Alex & Francisco

Raised in downtown Barva in the province of Heredia, Alex and Francisco Herrera are top senior travel advisors for Costa Rica. In the early 80’s, Alex went on a high school student exchange program to the State of Oregon. A few years later his younger brother Francisco did the same. Upon their return to Costa Rica, both started working on the very young Eco-Tourism Industry of the country, which was only beginning to thrive…

Over twenty five years later and having each worked for the biggest companies in the industry, the two brothers decided to come together and build a team. Tachiz Travel Costa Rica is the result of Alex and Francisco’s work of lifetime. A local travel agency with dedicated, unique and personalized 24/7 travel service. Tachiz Travel’s Headquarters are located in Barva, hometown of the Herrera brothers. It is also one of the most ancient human settlements of Costa Rica, established long before the Columbian expeditions. Here is a 90 second video on why travel with us

Why Travel with us?

What we do & how we do it

The Herrera brothers worked for the pioneers of Eco-Tourism in truly all capacities before starting their own passionate Tachiz Travel Costa Rica in 2002. Through the decades, they have prepared vacations for both the general and the special interest visitors, in groups of all size. Both Alex and Francisco have earned their degrees in Business Administration. More importantly, they enjoy  authentic personal connections with most of the current managers and owners of the hotels, tourism suppliers and communities’ members who are all key in our tailored unique itineraries. As you would imagine, this is a natural consequence of working A to Z in the industry for so many years. At Tachiz Travel we love to make each adventure a wonderful experience for the visitor and for the visited. Please watch the short video on what we do.

What we do & how we do it

Of course we also worked in the world renowned Specialty Coffee Industry of Costa Rica back in the day. After that, we traveled throughout the world to promote Costa Rica. We advised travel consultants on how to recommend it as the special interest destination it definitely is. We conducted and ran successful reengineering processes for the best known, longest standing DMC’s in Costa Rica. Including the most expensive one and also the largest one by far; not necessarily the most dedicated nor reasonably priced ones. Notably, we both had the opportunity of hiring, training and leading teams. Some of them continue to contribute to the inbound tourism industry of Costa Rica to this day.

What is “Tachiz™”

To us at Team Tachiz™, the right attitude has proven to be more important than even service itself when hosting visitors from abroad. Our “campesinos” (Farm workers of Costa Rica) and their attitude of genuine honest service and work ethics, inspired our logo, mission and vision. Francisco “Tachiz” Herrera sir -Alex and Francisco’s father- was a campesino himself and his nickname gives name to our company. To us, it defines our principles and direction.

Tachiz Travel™ is a small and very dedicated family owned business devoted to providing excellent services and the best value to the global high-end discerning communities. Furthermore, Tachiz Travel Costa Rica is:

      ° Certified by the ICT (Costa Rican Tourism Board).

      ° A member of CANATUR (Costa Rica’s National Chamber of Tourism).

      ° Proud member #498 of ACOPROT (Costa Rica’s Association of Professionals in Tourism).

      ° A member of Amigos de los Parque Nacionales (Friends of the National Parks of Costa Rica).

We hope you will give us the chance to live up to our mission and provide you with our superb attitude and value. That is, to serve you and host you here in Costa Rica from A to Z.
