- THE TICORICO KNOWLEDGEBASE -

our knowledge library about

Costa Rica

Welcome to the TicoRico knowledge library around CostaRica,

WikiRico gives you in a very extensive way an insight into the life of the plants and tree world and of course the animal world.

Our goal is to create a knowledge database for all nature enthusiasts, travelers and generally for young and old.
“together we learn, we discover the nature of CostaRica”.

But it is not only about knowledge per se, we are mainly interested in learning how to interact with nature and its diversity. Every day we learn something new from nature and with nature. Therefore WikiRico will be developed in perspective as a very important educational tool for local schools and associations to share this information and especially to bring it closer to children.

Knowledge must be available for everyone
