I certainly enjoy reading your daily news and I also want to extend personal thanks to Jay Brodell on some advice he gave me when I was trying to mail a package to San Jose.  Happy Birthday and may you enjoy many more.

Happy birthday and congratulations on successfully operating an online English newspaper from Costa Rica for a whole year!! I am one of those  “wanabies” who wanna be in Costa Rica now, but looks like it will be a few more months before the permanent move. So, my daily morning reading always starts out with amcostarica to try to keep up with whats going on and also the classified adds on house rentals and sales. Originally heard about amcostarica from the costa rica bulletin board about 6 months ago and have been very pleased with your subject matter. So keep up the good work, its good to see Costa Rica’s continuing effort on keeping up with the technology. See you all soon!

Happy Birthday AM Costa Rica!  I love opening my mail every morning and seeing your message (I'm in Oregon for the summer).

Congratulations on a wonderful and successful first year! 

For the past year, my husband and I have been planning our move to Costa Rica. I have been researching and researching, reading, Internet chatting, then researching some more.

Every morning when I sign into my computer at work, there is my message from Jay telling me about today’s edition, giving me the link to their website. I think, that poor man has been up all night writing and gathering stories for the paper, in an effort to keep everyone informed about what is going on in C.R.

Every Friday I sign onto my computer, excited to see what Jo Stuart has to say for the week. I love reading her short stories. I cried with her when her laptop was stolen and I laughed with her when she reminisced about her Mother. I even wonder what is going on with her theater group!!

This newspaper has been so useful to me. I have learned so much. I feel that I have the power of knowledge behind me. I have met so many wonderful people. 

Through my reading this paper I have gotten so excited to move to Costa Rica and start my new life.

Thank you Jay and all of your staff. Thank you for your hard work and your long hours of dedication! Best Wishes for many more years of success!!

I first visited Costa Rica this past May and have decided to move for a long stay starting in September.  I read you on a daily basis and found the news coverage and other articles informative and interesting, especially since my decision to return.  Keep up the good work.

It's time to toot your horn! 

Congratulations on completing your first year of AM Costa Rica -- a great addition to the  net. 

Thanks for the daily news updates and other services you provide.

Thank you for a wonderful year of daily news about Costa Rica, Central America, The US and the world.  Since I'm not able to be in Costa Rica year around I appreciate the opportunity you provide to know what's going on.  You cover the hard news, human interest stories and, my personal favorite, Jo Stuart's column.  Keep up the good work and many happy returns!

My cup of coffee!

A huge thank you to the entire staff at AM Costa Rica!  Thank you for putting a great little newspaper on the doorstop of my computer each weekday morning.  You provide me with important news of our new-found home, of Central America and the world and I love having my first cup of coffee with you each weekday morning.  Happy Birthday, and many more!

Every morning I wake up, brew up a pot of Costa Rican coffee, turn on my computer and read my AM Costa Rica!  You make me feel close to Ticoland, even though I'm in California.  I've gotten so much great info and so many contacts from you.  Thank you for being there for the CR lovers out there, and a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!

I live on the Arkansas River about 50 miles south of Little Rock. 
My morning routine is:
1. Make coffee
2. Carry out trash and bring in     newspaper. 
3. Turn on computer, drink coffee, read newspaper. 
4. Dial up inbox and read what is going on in Costa Rica. 
It is an important part of my day and I want to thank you for your hard work, interesting articles.  Where else do I get something valuable for free?  Keep up the good work.

As a frequent visitor to the country, what a pleasure it is for me to read the "news from Costa Rica" every morning.  Your diligence in staying on top of happenings there is most appreciated.  Happy Birthday!

My wife, my daughter and I are planning a move to Costa Rica in the next year and a half or so.  Your daily online publication has been invaluable in educating us about our future home.  You provide a wonderful resource of information.  Keep it up and Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday, you guys! I'm certainly not 'afraid' to say so. I read your daily newsbriefs even before I open the NY Times. 

You are not long-winded and you keep the ugliest aspects to a minimum. (I did not mind one bit, the dead monkey photo, as I was blissfully unaware that there was a problem for the monkies of the area, or that their corriders were disrupted. That certainly drove the point home.) 

I particularly like Jay Brodell's informative, rare editorials, and I always read Jo Stuart, and as many of the letters as I can stand. 

If it were not for y'all, I would not be learning the Tango — one of my life-long ambitions. One of my favorite things about living in C.R. is the quality of the close-knit communities and friendships. AMCR feels like that. 

With no television or radio, AMCR is my CNN view of the world and I find it covers most of what I need to know, without being too pompous or slanted and without the smokescreen so prevalent in the heavily censored U.S. media. 

I look forward to seeing you grow and thrive. Keep up the good work and printing the truth. 

Best wishes,

Right on, you've made it a year! And (according to your article on readership statistics) it looks like things are going pretty well. If it keeps up, you'll be printing money in no time.

I enjoyed the "beer reports" - made me really want a Bavaria Negra though.... It's amazing how much Donna & I miss CR. 

Our friend Dave is living in San Jose now, and has been talking about the earthquakes quite a bit. Sounds kind of fun to me. The rain though, I'm glad I'm missing.

To the tune of "Happy Birthday to You"....

  Happy birthday to you!

  You live in a warm place,
  Oh, How I wish I did too!!!

AM Costa Rica is very dangerous [g] it is habit forming. I find that every morning I MUST go to site and see what is happening. Keep up the good work. AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

I wish you well on your second year in publishing a newsletter on Costa Rica.  You are a breath of fresh air compared to the biased, slanted views I get from Tico Times. Keep up the good work.

A.M. Costa Rica is the best source of news and information for English speakers interested in Costa Rica. No other media source provides the kind of daily news that A.M. Costa Rica has been offering. You have seen a huge news hole left by the Tico Times and worked honorably to fill it. Keep up the good work! We love keeping up on what is happening in Costa Rica by reading amcostarica.com every chance we get.

It's such a pleasure every morning to read your intelligent, witty and informative newspaper. You provide such a gracious way for me to keep up with events in my future home.

Thank you for the superb job you're doing. Keep up the great work, and enjoy many, many more birthdays!

I have only been reading your daily updates for the last two months, but I am already hooked.  I was researching Costa Rica for some friends who will be driving from Indiana to Paraguay in a month or so and stumbled across your site.  I was immediately hooked and learned a lot about Costa Rica.  I had never been interested before.

Your combination of local humor and flavor and interesting news is refreshing. It reminds me of a time when I lived abroad and looked for information and news from the English speaking community in a foreign country.  I love that.

Thanks for providing this top-rate service!
