The Tico Times is an English-language media organization based in Costa Rica. Established in May 1956, it closed its print edition in 2012 and became an online-only publication; in 2017, it began publishing special print editions with highlights from its daily online coverage. The Tico Times was founded in 1956 as a student newspaper under the guidance of Elisabeth "Betty" Dyer at the Lincoln School in San José, Costa Rica's capital. The print edition "reached its heyday between 2005 and 2007, flush with real-estate advertisements aimed at foreign tourists during the U.S. housing boom". But after 56 years as a print weekly the newspaper became an "unlikely casualty" of the collapse of the housing bubble, and, on September 28, 2012, it announced on its website that it would no longer publish print editions. It laid off its entire 16-person staff, who worked for free as volunteers while the business was being restructured as an online-only publication. The online incarnation of The Tico Times went live in January 2014. More information...
