Potrero, Costa Rica

Another great destination in Guanacaste, Potrero is a small fishing village with a neighboring beach, Playa Potrero, where lush mountains cascade down to tranquil palm-lined beaches.  The area is full of exotic flora and fauna and flanked by a range of volcanoes.

Water activities in Playa Potrero include scuba diving, snorkeling, and fishing for marlin, swordfish, and tuna.  The town is adjacent to the more populated Playa Flamingo, which has a full service marina that offers excursions and rentals.

On land, there’s the Santa Rosa National Park, as well as the Palo Verde Natural Reserve.  Potrero is conveniently located only a 45 minutes drive from Liberia’s International Airport.
