Costa Rica: Layoffs at La Nación Newspaper

Costa Rica's most important newspaper La Nación is facing economic problems and recently announced that 25 employees would be laid off writes Fusil de Chispas [es]


  • A less noticed sign of media troubles in Costa Rica: A couple weeks before La Nación made its announcement, The Beach Times , an English-language weekly based in Guanacaste, shut down after five years of very solid local and national reporting. English language media, which has a long tradition in Costa Rica, is particularly vulnerable if tourism continues to drop as well.

    Does anyone know whether The Guanacaste Journal is still alive?
