Happy Birthday, A.M. Costa Rica!
Even more wishes from our loyal readers ...
I enjoy your site and the local news there, as my daughter, with a group of Stoughtonites, continue a long-running church-mission program to Costa Rica these two weeks.  Looks beautiful, looks inviting, and the real estate looks affordable!!  Can you get the Green Bay Packer games on TV there?

Thanks again for your news and sharing.

Well, I for one think you're doing a great job, and hope to be able to wish 'Happy Birthday' many more times. When I turn on my computer at 6
AM, first checking for mail, then my next move is clicking on to 'amcostarica'. Originally from Britain, then 30 years in Nelson, B.C. we came to Costa Rica 1 3/4 years ago. Now living just outside Turrialba, we have a Coffee Farm

Both my husband and I enjoy your web-site very much.

Happy Birthday. You all are doing a great job and we look forward to reading your news daily. As we travel around the country and there you are covering the news. The 4th of July in Guanacaste was a great celebration, which you covered. Thank you for all you do.

On the occasion of the http://www.AMCostaRica.com first Birthday, I wish to congratulate you all on your efforts and the refinements your publication has taken over the past year!  It has improved my enjoyment of life, and that of others, I know!  I have disseminated your Web address to friends on both coasts of North America, as well as the Mississippi delta and northern Europe.  The usual response has been "Thanks, Bob!  I have added it to my list of 'Favorites'!"  I wish to echo those sentiments, and wish you many more successful years! Your loyal and appreciative reader,

Long live A.M. Costa Rica.  I am not a clairvoyant but I can predict that A.M. Costa Rica will keep us up to speed with the Costa Rican and world news for many years to come.  Quality work and integrity go a long way!

Congratulations to yourself and your dynamic team and many thanks!

Birthing a new business is always tough. Far tougher in Costa Rica, than most would imagine. I know because I have started two successfully in the past 7 years.

You truly identified the need and filled it for me, with A.M. Costa Rica. I hope you are making some money, because you deserve to.

The chance discovery of A.M. Costa Rica, nearly 10 months ago, has brought this reader many a heart-felt thank yous for the wonderful and continuing effort that Jay Brodell at A.M. Costa Rica has made in bringing us clear and concise information regarding news, events, and viewpoints from the perspective of Costa Rica.

A happy first, and wishes for many, many more!

From the province of Chiriqui, Panama, where we winter, and from San Antonio, Texas, where our work is, ... Happy Birthday!

We travel to Costa Rica regularly, and even do a little business there from time to time.  Your news keeps us abreast of the pulse of the country.  Thank you!  Have dozens more!

All of us at The Travel Store want to wish you and your staff a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY and wish you continued success in the future!!!

As a travel agency specializing in ''Gringo" travel it is interesting to note how our clients — probably 6 months ago only a few mentioned the name AMCOSTARICA. Now it is almost the way most clients start a conversations start, "Did you read it on AMCOSTARICA?????"

BEST WISHES for continued success!!

Happy Birthday to the Costa Rican Web News Pioneers and hopefully it is the first in a long history. 

My wife Cecs and I think you are great and we start our day with a cup of coffee and amcostarica.com.

I have added amcostarica.com as a link in our new website www.puntacoral.com.

Happy Birthday, AMCostaRica!  It's good to have an English daily here. I wish you many happy returns of this day.

We here at Géminis del Pacifico wish you the very best in your celebration of your one year anniversary. Though it took us until December to find you, we have enjoyed your English online news of Costa Rica ever since then. It has kept us informed of the daily news in Costa Rica both during the times we were in our home in Costa Rica and when we  were at our old place back in the EE.UU.

I am part owner of a couple of small weekly papers in Chicago so I know how much work you do. And, you do it five times per week! Great job. May your venture be a long, happy and prosperous one. One that many of us can enjoy for a long time to come.

I discovered you just a few months ago through the CRLiving group.

Congratulations on a year of hard work.  I enjoy checking on the news every morning and I think you do a great service.  I have family there and we are moving there next year so this is a way to keep in touch.  Once again thank you all. Keep up the good work.

Thank you for providing daily news of Costa Rica, Central and South America this past year. Your reporting is the kind we need while living in Costa Rica.  It allows us to feel that we at least understand a part of what is happening here.  I have given your web site to several people in the U.S. who are interested in Costa Rica and all agree, it is great!  Keep up the good work.

I only recently learned of your site (service).  As a long-time resident of Costa Rica (now living in the U.S.)  I certainly appreciate the news.  I wish you success. Buena Suerte.

Happy birthday. Your honesty in reporting difficult news stories is greatly appreciated.

Congratulations on the 1st anniversary of AM Costa Rica!

Well, of *course* AM CR is valued!  Obviously it had an impact - Tico Times had to come up with a Daily News section to counter it!  Competition always benefits the consumer and, in this case, it was lucky us, the readers.  Here is a birthday song.  You guess which language.

  Du skan nog leva
  Du skan nog leva 
  Du skan nog leva
  överhundra år.
  Och vist ska du leva
  Och vist ska du leva
  Och vist ska du leva
  över hundra år.
  Hurra!  Hurra!  Hurra!  Hurra!

My first trip to Costa Rica was 8 years ago. I fell in love with the people and the country during my first week. I've returned yearly and sometimes more so since.

I found AM Costa Rica about 6 months ago and now look forward to my daily dose of news from my "second" homeland. 

I am happy to say I've returned 3 times this year and have enjoyed the new train service to the beach on weekends...

Although I have not been reading your publication for the whole year, it is probably one of the best things that has happened on the Internet, lately! A good friend of mine from Jacó turned me on to you and reading your articles has turned into a morning ritual for me. The reporting seems to get better every week, it's factual and mostly objectively neutral.

Keep up the good work!

CONGRATULATIONS... on a great start and completing a great first year!

GOD'S SPEED... during your second year, as you continue to grow and provide the best English news coverage in the country.  You are totally dependable in your Monday thru Friday web publication, plus objective in your coverage, unlike the "other source" that we have. 

I know the free daily news cannot last forever... and I think most of your subscribers will be happy to pay a reasonable subscription charge for the excellent journalism, when that day comes.

I look forward to a clearing house, and not just a directory, for services to the English-speaking population that can be relied upon.  I know this takes time, but would be of benefit to all of us... avoiding the rip-off's that we encounter frequently.

Best wishes as you embark on your second year.

Dave Cameron

Editor's Note: We hope the free news lasts forever.
