Pensar, the Spanish-language skeptics magazine launched in 2004, has suspended publication as of 2009. The magazine covered many topics, including global warming, AIDS denial, miracles, and ghosts, as well as lesser-known regional topics specific to Latin America.

According to Editor Alejandro Borgo, though Pensar was well-received during its five-year run, the magazine was unable to achieve the subscription and distribution levels needed to maintain publication. The rising cost of paper, printing, and postage—combined with the global economic recession—finally made Pensar too costly to maintain in its current form. The Pensar editorial staff and writers expressed their appreciation to readers for their support and are looking for ways to keep some of the material in circulation.
