San José, Costa Rica, since 1956

Dear Readers: Welcome to the Expanded Nica Times

We are happy to present our first eight-page publication of The Nica Times, featuring expanded coverage of Nicaragua plus new community pages to keep you abreast of what’s going on in this growing and lively country. And we’re doing so just as all eyes turn to Nicaragua for the upcoming Nov. 5 elections.

Since our modest beginnings back in March 2004 as a one-page “Nicaragua News” page in The Tico Times, we have strived to inform readers about important events and issues in this complex and fascinating part of the world.

In January 2005, The Nica Times officially launched as a four-page weekly supplement to The Tico Times, and in doing so announced that we plan to be here for the long haul. Since then, we have become the leading source of in-depth, English-language news coverage on Nicaragua for the informed reader here and abroad.

Our exclusive interviews with top political, business and tourism leaders of Nicaragua, plus special reports from across the country, have filled our little publication with insider information not found in any other English-language news source.

Our international readership and in-country newsstand sales have grown consistently and substantially since we began.

Now we’ve outgrown our baby shoes, so we’re going up a size to take bigger and more confident steps into the future.

In addition to expanded coverage of business, real estate, tourism and “Exploring Nicaragua” stories, the expanded Nica Times will feature a new “Community Connection” page each week for Calendar events, photos and news from readers throughout Nicaragua.We also are including a page for letters, Perspective articles and – eventually – feature columns.

We invite all readers to start sending us your letters now; let us know what your thoughts are on the elections, investment climate, current events or Nicaragua life in general. And tell us about upcoming events so we can include them on the Calendar page.

The community pages will be as good as its contributions; so please help us to make it great.

Our decision to increase is a sign of The Nica Times’ commitment to Nicaragua, and our confidence in its future.

The Nica Times would like to thank our readers, advertisers and others who have supported us thus far.We look forward to continuing to be a part of the community!
