Playa Potrero

The Community

Nestled next to Playa Flamingo in the quiet fishing village of Potrero, Playa Potrero is tranquil and serene. This beach is located along the northwest Pacific coast of Guanacaste, surrounded by rolling hills, tropical vegetation and diverse wildlife. Visitors look out onto the gorgeous turquoise waters that stretch over the white sand beaches of the bay area. This beach community is ideal for watching the sunset in all its glory. Travelers who want to get away from all the hustle and bustle of modern life will find Playa Potrero to be the perfect destination. Potrero Costa Rica real estate is growing due to the small beach town appeal with the Pura Vida lifestyle.

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.
