COSTA RICA NEWS AND MEDIA
Costa Rica enjoys a vibrant media scene, with ten major newspapers, private and public TV stations and a very busy FM radio dial. Cable TV has been widely available, but it does take time to get it ... last we heard, about 2-4 months.
With a literary percentage of over 95%, Costa Ricans rank the highest in all of the Central and South American countries. Fact remains, Costa Rica's like to read and know what is going on. It is very common to see crowed bus stops and cafes with people glued to a newspaper ... just about every street corner there is a newspaper stand
Many press groups like, "Reporters Without Borders" describes the country's media as "fairly free". Libel laws and a law which ensures the right of reply for individuals criticised in reports are in force. Much of the daily news covers, world and local news, tourism, sports, government, crime, current events, agricuture, boating, retirement issues, weather and travel.
Places like Tico Times and AM Costa Rica have extensive archive of past articles and photographs.
