Just wondering if the border dispute with Nicaragua has affected anybody involved in TEFL in Costa Rica?

Has there been much concern among students and the "man on the street"?

I have friends and family down there (and was recently down there myself for a year) and have not heard anything. There's always going to be some tension between Nicaragua and Costa Rica since CR annexed Guanacaste in the 1800s and Nicaragua invaded (or tried to invade) CR in the 1800s as well. This doesn't look like a serious issue and with the increased U.S. presence in CR, Nicaragua would be foolish to try anything more than "strong" rhetoric.
