Why doesn't Costa Rica use real addresses? by Alejandro Zúñiga (The Costa Rica Daily: Costa Rica News & Travel)
Costa Rica uses an idiosyncratic system of addresses that relies on landmarks, history and quite a bit of guesswork. My apartment, for instance, is three houses down from the local high school. The high school’s official address is 300 meters east of the elementary school. The elementary school’s address is across the street from the church — or next to the bar, depending on your piety.
