As a historic sport fishing community, Playa Potrero has gotten its claim to fame from avid anglers that cast a line in the waters just off shore each year. After all, the region is known as the sailfish capital of the world. Fisherman reel in record-sized fish in nearly every category, so it’s no surprise that sport fishing is the No. 1 activity in the area. Travelers can head out on a half or full-day excursion on the open sea with local charters.
