Playa Potrero Guanacaste Region of Costa Rica

Playa Potrero is a wonderfully tranquil place for passing the day, lying on warm sand, bathing in the sun and reading in the shade of palm trees. On the beach's
north end, the small fishing village of Potrero looks to Playa Potrero and its bay. Toward the southern end, sits the chic beach community of Playa Flamingo.

Vacations in Playa Potrero




The quiet and gorgeous bay of Playa Potrero is situated in the province of Guanacaste, where visitors enjoy dreamy summer days along the numerous beaches and warm turquoise waters. The area is rich with exotic plant and wildlife, and to the east, a string of volcanic mountain ranges boarder the Province.

In the Playa Potrero area, visitors can choose from a wide variety of water sports such as Scuba Diving, snorkeling, and kayaking. They can also enjoy world-class deep-sea fishing for Marlin, Tuna and Swordfish. The Playa Flamingo community to the south, maintains a full service marina, offering boating excursions and water sport rentals.  For those wanting to get off the beach and discover the surrounding rainforest, Santa Rosa National Park and Palo Verde Natural Reserve are not far away.

To reach the small paradise of Playa Potrero, a drive from Liberia's International Airport takes 45 minutes, or it is four and a half hours from San Jose.






Comments

"We stayed in Playa Flamingo and enjoyed our walks on the beach."

"Playa Potrero was a quiet and beautiful area that was great for relaxation and exploring."

"The most beauriful, peaceful beach I've every seen. We walked down the beach one day and had a beverage in a local restaurant but other than that we didn't leave the hotel. Breakfast was included and was very good. They brought eggs and fruit plates fresh from the kitchen and there was a standard buffet to eat from until your special order arrived. The menu here was varied and satisfying. "

"We took numerous walks around town and on the beach, it was a very quaint and quiet area. We rode the city bus a couple of times and took a taxi to Conchal beach which was really pristine. "

"We only stayed one night at Hotel Bahia Esmeralda. Very nice and comfortable. Good breakfast."
