TICO has seen an increase in Special Interest Travel organized by individuals or businesses whose primary purpose is not selling travel and for that reason are not registered with TICO. These individuals or businesses sometimes engage in activities that may fall under the Act and require registration. These guidelines are designed to assist those engaging in Special Interest Travel to better understand when registration is required under the Act.  Examples include a yoga studio that offers a tour/retreat that includes transportation and/or accommodation or a photographer who runs a workshop to teach photography and the workshop includes transportation and/or accommodation.
