Geocache Name: A Moagem (GC4QYFG) [translated from Portuguese: The Grind] Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 1.5/1 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: Geocaches take on many forms: some are cool containers, some are in interesting places and some are mind-bending puzzles. This week’s Geocache of the Week is a combination of all three. The geocache itself is an incredibly well-made, large cryptex. Geocachers have to use the clues in the description to decipher the code, then line up the different wheels in the right spot to release the geocache. The place where this geocache resides is also interesting. “A Moagem” in Portuguese [...]
Geocache Name: The Meeting of Waters (GC3XGGT) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 2/2 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: With much of the world in the grips of World Cup fever (Go USA!), we thought it would be a great time to show off some of the cool geocaches in Brazil. This week, we’re near the city of Manaus, where the soccer/football matches between England & Italy, Cameroon & Croatia, United States & Portugal, and Honduras & Switzerland will take place.

Geocache Name: De drie hoofddeugden (GC3G6DH) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 2.5/1.5 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: Last April, the Geocaching HQ videographer, reidsomething, had the opportunity to visit Bruges and attend a Mega-Event. While she was there, she had the opportunity to meet two geocachers and explore one of their multi-caches. Check out the video above to learn more about what makes this multi-cache amazing. What the cache owner, sdw2, has to say: “The thing we mostly like [about placing geocaches] is to think about something new and to work it out in our heads. Also exploring the area and [...]
Geocache Name: Who’s there? (GC3Z1EY) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 2.5/2 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: First, check out the video up top—that should clear up most of it. This geocache shows an incredibly creative use of the Arduino computing platform. We’ve seen geocaches with pretty creative locks, but never one where you actually have to knock before it will let you in. Furthermore, this geocache, which seems like a pretty complicated device, was conceived and built by a CO with no technical background. His dedication to learning the proper way to build and program is a great example for [...]
Geocache Name: The Blue Hole – Half Moon Caye (GC2KFB8) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 1.5/4.5 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: After receiving a little more rain in Seattle, I couldn’t help but daydream of somewhere sunny, warm and tropical. I remembered a place I’ve always wanted to go scuba diving and decided to see if there was a geocache nearby—and of course, there was! The Great Blue Hole in Belize was once named one of the top 10 scuba diving sites in the world by Jacques-Yves Cousteau. The Blue Hole was formed through thousands of years of geologic processes, [...]
