Sort by Favorite Points


There’s a one-click solution to discovering some of the most interesting geocaches anywhere in the world. Premium Members can click the blue ribbon on their search results page and presto magic, the search results are sorted by Favorite Points! This is an easy way to instantly see which geocaches leave your fellow geocachers in awe. The one thing you can say for certain is that the quality of the caching experience is likely to be far above average.

Geocaches might earn a Favorite Point if the location is really interesting or the container and hiding place impress cachers with their originality. Some geocaches have racked up hundreds of Favorite Points (some have even earned more than a thousand). Searching by Favorite Points also offers a big time-saving advantage, since you won’t have to sort through page after page of search results to find the best caches in an area.

Premium Members earn one Favorite Point for every ten geocaches that are found. They can reward their points to any cache they have logged as found. Basic Members who upgrade to Premium Membership receive Favorite Points accordingly to their past finds.

To start earning, rewarding, and sorting by Favorite Points, upgrade to Premium Membership for as little as $2.50 per month!
