Is "tico" or "tica" a shortened version of "simpático" or "simpática"? Or am I making that up completely? smile

slang for people from Costa Rica. Maybe it originated from "simpático".

It's also a Brazilian Portuguese slang for the male appendage. So if any Costa Ricans out there plan to visit Brazil, please be careful, hehe. - Eddy, OCT 13, 2009

Both are correct.

Simpático is the masculine form and simpática is the feminine form.

Please review in the dictionary the differents meanings of this word.
