Andrés Madrigal / The Tico Times

In the weeks since the relaunch of The Tico Times on Sept. 1, we’ve been hard at work to reconnect with the readers and communities we serve. As part of that effort, we’re proud to bring you a special High Season Print Edition, which provides a small taste of the content available at

We’re so grateful to the freelances, sponsors and advertisers who have joined us in this new phase of The Tico Times’ 61-year life. Most of all, we’re grateful to you, our readers – and, as the first Tico Times editorial put it in 1956, “we shall welcome criticisms suggestions, news, letters, recipes and original contributions.”

Please join us: as an advertiser or sponsor, a writer, photographer, videographer or community liaison (contact us at for more information). If you’d like to be a distributor of our free High Season Print Edition, contact us at And if you’d like to pick up a copy, here is a list of the first locations around the country where you can find one. We’re distributing now, so more locations will be added in the coming days.
