Today we release a new country/regional souvenir for Costa Rica! If you have found a geocache in Costa Rica, you automatically receive the souvenir on your profile.
Costa Rica is often said to be one of the happiest countries in the world. Known for their outstanding democracy and quality of life, Costa Ricans are often said to live the Pura Vida, literally “pure life.”
Though it might be a tiny country, it has a mighty amount of flora and fauna. It represents about 5 percent of the world’s biodiversity. The Monteverde cloud forest alone hosts over 100 species of mammals, 400 species of birds, 2,500 species of plants—and of course, one Geocache of the Week!
Rainbow Valley Cache is an unassuming hide, located at the edge of the Cloud Forest. IT’s a classic container with room for plenty of swag that will leave both you and any young geocacher you bring with smiles upon your logs and your faces.
Take a hike over a vibrant blue suspension bridge or celebrate your find with a cool drink in a treehouse bar as you explore the astounding surroundings.
And of course, check out the wildlife teeming in the area.
Speaking of wildlife, when you find the cache, don’t forget to camouflage it appropriately or, as the cache page warns, the “monkeys will steal it!”
