One of the most famous destinations on the beach in Costa Rica, Playa Flamingo came to prominence in the 70s when the rich and famous built homes on the South and North Points that cap the ends of one of the prettiest white sand beaches in the country.
Many of the homes in Flamingo have incredible views of the Pacific Ocean from either point, both of which rise dramatically from the ocean and Potrero Bay.
In addition to a gorgeous beach, Flamingo has some great restaurants such as Angelina’s, Marie’s and Pleamar as well as some small shops.
For fisherman, the area is ideal as many of the sport fishing boats moor in Potrero Bay, just to the north. There are also many monohull and catamaran sail boats that offer snorkeling, surf trips to Witch’s Rock and booze cruises.
Flamingo is home to lovely mansion style vacation rentals as well as many condominiums in the various resorts that offer amenities such as pools, restaurants, and tennis courts.
