Geocaching Favorites

The Geocaching Favorites feature calls attention to exceptional geocaches hidden around the world. Premium Members award Favorite Points to the caches they enjoyed most. The points reward the person who hid the cache as well as help others to discover great caches. A blue ribbon on cache pages and in the search results list displays the number of Favorite Points a cache has received. Since Favorites was added to the Geocaching.com website, more than 2.6 million Favorite Points have been awarded.

While a quality geocache may earn a few Favorite Points, some amazing geocaches have earned hundreds of points. One traditional geocache, about a ghost haunting the woods of Germany, earned more than one thousand Favorite points.

In addition to awarding Favorite Points, Premium Members can sort the search results to display the caches with the most Favorite Points at the top of the list. This helps you easily identify the best caches in an area.
