The Costa Rica Star will blur the line between Tico and foreigner, and bring everyone interested in Costa Rica together to empower and educate in a transparent fashion, through the digital publication of English news media.


The Costa Rica Star publishes news articles across 10 categories, mainly focusing on Costa Rica local news with occasional content from Latin America and World News.

We are listed in Google News globally and thus receive thousands of daily website hits from all nations of the world who have interest in Costa Rica.


The Costa Rica Star was founded in December 2011 by a Canadian Citizen who now lives in Costa Rica as a permanent full-time resident. Graduating from Highschool at the American International School of Heredia Costa Rica as well as attending the University of Victoria in BC Canada for Business Studies, and acquiring a professional website development diploma from the Institute of Advanced Media, now called Van Arts, our founder is well versed in the needs of English news media here in Costa Rica.


The Costa Rica Star is located in the Forum 1 office buildings of Santa Ana Costa Rica. We have satellite offices around Costa Rica, but that is where our main office and administration is located. We sublease office space from another business who leases there. In the near future we may move to another location in Costa Rica which allows for a better quality of life for our main employees, but at this current time Forum 1 is centrally located for our business needs.


Why should YOU read and subscribe to The Costa Rica Star? Because you will come away empowered and educated on not only the current events in Costa Rica, but you will get a chance to shape English news media here through your feedback.

We work closely within our social media channels to ensure that we are providing the news content you want to read and answering your questions openly on the mediums of communication that you use most.
