Costa Rica Newspapers Media Guide
..learn how to choose the right one for you

The Costa Rica Newspapers come in a wide variety of presentations, most of them in Spanish and any cost less than $1.

The newspapers in Costa Rica are majorly sold in the streets and supermarkets but they are also pretty easy to find in ' Pulperias ' (convenience store) and I think people buy them according to the following circumstances.

1- Jobs in Costa Rica: buy ‘La Nacion’ on Sundays but preferably Mondays, there is a big employment section, buy it just during these 2 days because the rest of the week is not that good, this newspaper is the most respectable in the country; the Sunday edition is bigger and more expensive.

Google Maps shows Costa Rica's coordenades as 9.748917,-83.753428

2- Sports fan: without any doubt buy 'periodico Al dia'. This one gives high importance to the sports in Costa Rica, however keep in main that since soccer is the #1 sport here most of the information will be about it.

3- Accidents, Murders and Crime in Costa Rica: easy, buy ' Diario Extra '. I do not know how, but their journalist are always the first ones on the ‘scene’, so they get the first shots, usually real but cruel pictures are shown in their editions; however a lot of Costa Ricans consider their approach sometimes disrespectful, I agree too !

Watch out with 'La Teja' !

4- Looking for Costa Rica Business or Costa Rica Real Estate Investments: here I can recommend you two options: ‘ La Republica ’ and ‘ El Financiero ’; definitely these are not the best sellers but they have great information about the economy of Costa Rica, specially for investors.

5- Costa Rican Girls: if you are on a serious relationship, have a jealous girlfriend or a really violent wife never buy ' La Teja ', here is why..

'La Teja' is the cheapest newspaper, it has daily pictures of hot girls from Costa Rica in the back side plus a couple of questions for the model. Note: Costa Rican ladies do not believe that we we buy it because of the low price; it’s just 100 colones = 1 Teja, you see, we protect the economy.

A couple of Costa Rica Newspapers in English..

Before jumping into the English Newspapers let me tell you that there is another really important in spanish; it’s called ‘La Gaceta’ and it’s highly use by The Costa Rica Government. The main purpose is to release important country announcements like laws, international trades or agreements; the most common usage is to announce gasoline prices raises. - Find the best hotel deals!

In Costa Rica the first language is the Spanish and for that reason the English newspapers are not common here, however there are a couple of good options, number one is ‘The Tico Times’ and number two ‘The Journal’. I was forced (when studying English) to read the Tico Times and really like it, it has a format similar to ‘La Nacion’ and really it is well respected too, The Tico Times is mostly sold in the supermarket chains.
