Costa Rica introduces postal address system
Costa Rica has begun to reform its postal address system, which uses landmarks and directions instead of street names and numbers.
According to a study from the Inter-American Development Bank, the country loses an estimated $720m (£440m) a year in revenue associated with lost and undelivered mail.
The current system also causes problems for delivery workers, as Wendy Urquhart reports.
