Tico Times #TBT: The one millionth Tico

October 4, 2018

Last month, Costa Rica welcomed the five millionth Tico, so this Thursday in our #TBT we’re looking back at two other landmarks captured in the pages of The Tico Times. The year of our founding, 1956, Costa Rica welcomed the millionth Costa Rican – Elver Núñez Artavia – and in 2000, our photographer was there when the country welcomed its millionth tourist.

Read more about these stories and other moments from Tico Times and Costa Rican history in our 50th anniversary special, published in 2006.
