Costa Rica’s Address System

I wanted to start 2014 off on a fun note and what better way to do just that than to talk about Costa Rica’s address system.  I know I’ve already written about this early on in the blog but it always makes me giggle, every time I either see an address or have to try to give my address to someone.

Here are two of my favorite addresses that I’ve come across:

100 metros este de Ferreteria Fertama, Edificio color verde #6 (100 meters east of the Fertama Hardware Store, Green Color Building, #6).  At some point, they may change the color of the building…but the address will stay the same

200 mtrs norte de Pizza Hut Paseo Colon (200 meters north of the Pizza Hut on Paseo Colon)

Oh and in case you were wondering, yes we do have Christmas trees in Costa Rica…and somehow, even with all the crazy addresses, Santa is able to find his way here.

Happy 2014!

Pura vida…Chrissy
