Sunset for the Tico Times print edition
It succumbed to the economic challenges that have faced many newspapers around the world. More and more people are getting their news on line, and the costs of printing and distributing the traditional newspaper are too much in an era of declining advertising and subscription revenues. Hopefully, the newspaper will find enough revenue sources from its on-line edition to continue to support its excellent reporting.
The Tico Times is an English language publication. It has broken many stories over the years and is an excellent way for people like me, who spend time in Costa Rica and love the country, but do not live there all the time, to keep in touch with local and regional news while we are away. Sadly and shamefully, I do not speak Spanish, so it is a critical news source for me as reading the Spanish language papers on line would not keep me informed, until I finally learn Spanish, as I am committed to do when I retire.
Here is a link to the website for the Tico Times.
This week we are showing photos of the Khmer jungle temples of Cambodia on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.
