It’s a beautiful #TravelTuesday here at Secrets® Resorts & Spas, and this week we’re going to take you on a journey through Costa Rica! Costa Rica’s motto, pura vida, is a way of life that has the country ranked as one of the happiest and the greenest countries in the world. Tucked between Nicaragua and Panama, and the Caribbean and Pacific Oceans, Costa Rica is a land of incredible beauty and biodiversity.
Each year the world anxiously awaits the Miss Universe Pageant and here at Secrets Resorts & Spas we get especially excited for the event! We love cheering on Miss Mexico, Miss Jamaica and Miss Dominican Republic – who each represent a country that is home to our beautiful resorts.
The final five contestants of the 2010 Miss Universe Pageant came down to Miss Mexico, Miss Australia, Miss Jamaica, Miss Ukraine and Miss Philippines. Needless to say, we were on the edge of our seats waiting for the results!
When asked their final questions, Miss Mexico and Miss Jamaica answered with ease. In the end, Miss Mexico, Jimena Navarrete, was crowned Miss Universe 2010 and Miss Jamaica, Yendi Phillipps, was named first runner-up. We couldn’t be more proud!
Here’s a look at the final few moments of the competition and Miss Mexico receiving her crown. Congratulations again from all of the staff at Secrets Resorts & Spas!
