Miss Costa Rica 2015 pageant has been rescheduled and will now be held on August 7’ 2015 at Marco Picado Study. Karina Ramos, the reigning Miss Costa Rica will crown her successor at the end of the coronation night. Karina represented Costa Rica at the Miss Universe 2014 pageant, however was unplaced.

However, few days ago, the organisers of Miss Costa Rica announced that the winner of Miss Costa Rica will not compete at the Miss Universe pageant because of the remarks made by Donald trump about Mexican immigrants. All the contestants of Miss Costa Rica support thee decision and the organisers have announced that they will change the ddecision only if Mr. Trump apologizes and retracts his statements, or if he dissociates himself from the pageant. “The opinions of this man, Donald Trump, are completely conrary to the most basic principles of Costa Rican nationality – principles that also guide the daily work of every one of us.” , said the organisers.

The organisers are very strict about the reputation of their contestants and makes it clear that there should be no pictures or videos that can spoil the image of the future Miss Costa Rica.  Failure to comply with this leads to automatic elimination from the competition.

Costa Rica has had a decent placement at the Miss Universe pageant so far - 2013, 2011, 2004 and 1954. However, th higest placements were in the year 2004 & 2011 when Miss Costa Rica representatives were among the Top 10 Finalists.
