About The Tico Times

The Tico Times is a source of independent, unique and quality journalism in Costa Rica and Central America. We connect communities and cultures throughout Costa Rica, as well as people around the world who are interested in our country and region. We are working to build a sustainable, ethical and environmentally responsible media organization.

We do this by:
  • Training the next generation of fact-driven journalists in Costa Rica
  • Documenting Costa Rican cultures and history with an eye on the future
  • Promoting and showcasing solutions to Costa Rica’s challenges
  • Serving as a meeting place for Central American and international journalists
  • Amplifying the voices of outstanding journalists throughout Central America
Your support makes all that possible.

It also moves us toward our goal of enlisting 5 percent of our readers as subscribers in 2021. This would make us a fully reader-funded newspaper and allow us to do much more of the work you love.

In case you missed them, you funded some amazing stories and videos. Check them out here:



And if you're hungry for more news throughout the week, stay up to date with our weekly news roundup, The Tico Times Weekly Digest.  
Thank you for being a part of our mission and please spread the word. We need to reach 5,000 subscribers to meet our 5 Percent goal in 2021, so please tell friends who love Costa Rica, great journalism or adorable sloth videos to join the club!

Monthly donations are most helpful for us since it supports our monthly planning, but one-time donations are greatly appreciated as well!
Goals
$220.54 of $10,000 per month
When we reach $10,000 per month, we will achieve a fully reader-funded newsroom and be able to provide sustainable, consistent support and training to our outstanding team of young Central American journalists.
