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!
