The Best Diving in Costa Rica



Potrero Beach also lies in Flamingo and is often mistaken for Flamingo Beach as it is home to the new Flamingo Marina Development and the first beach you see when entering the area. Potrero Beach is a Dark Grey Volcanic Beach and on the left side close to Marina it is littered with Fishing Boats, Catamaran's and Dive Boats. The majority of the beach and to the right is sparse with a few Residences, Hotels and Restaurants fringing the back of the beach. The most popular facility on this beach is the Costa Rica Sailing Center & Hemingway's Restaurant. Here you can rent Paddle Boards, Kayaks, various sail boats and they offer sailing lessons and have a large fun group of members. This is also the focal point of Potrero's social and Live Music scene. If you are looking for a quiet local dining experience, then you should check outEstero Azul closer to the boat mooring area. We highly recommend this hidden gem during the day. You will only find local food and drinks here.

Good for Boogie Boarding but take your own as there are no Surfing Rentals on this beach.
