It was an exciting evening for Nazareth Cascante Madrigal who after all was said and done was crowned Miss Costa Rica 2012, destined to fill some important shoes with the end of reign for Miss Costa Rica 2011, Johanna Solano.

The event, held at Teletica’s studio, http://www.misscostarica.com saw the winner lead in all of the events during the pageant. It seemed that this 5’9″ beauty was destined to become the winner from the being. The annual event, now in its 59th year was filled with anticipation in terms of who would replaced the current reigning Miss Costa Rica, Johanna Solano whose reign took her to runner up in the Miss Universe 2011 pageant.

Miss Solano, Miss Costa Rica 2011, was a popular figure amongst the pageant circuit and around the world. Considered to be one of the hardest working beauty queens for Costa Rica, her focus included elder issues and social outreach programs. The new Miss Costa Rica 2012 will have to make her own mark on the position although it will be difficult for many to forget Solano’s contribution to the position.
