Our Name

Where did we get our name from? Californica is the Latin word used to describe many native Californian plants. Our favorite is Eschscholzia californica, our state flower the poppy. This species of flowering plant in the Papaveraceae family, native to the California and Mexico, much like Costa Californica's founders.
