Costa Rica Vacation Information: Explore Playa Flamingo
One of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica.
It is a pristine location, with crystal clear waters and unspoiled beach and a dazzling array of marine life. A variety of water sports can be found here, including deep sea sport fishing, scuba
diving, and surfing. It also has a full service marina. There are hotels, condos (for extended stays) and private houses along the coast.
A fabulous holiday location!
Obviously, this is the main attraction of this upscale resort area offering calm waters which are great for swimming.
Take a short drive south to Playa Conchal for a look at the relaxing waters and white sand/shell beach of Conchal.
There are some incredible tours that operate out of Conchal and Flamingo, including sportfishing, surfing, diving, and sailing on the Maratonga.
Restaurant Estero Azul
Restaurant Estero Azul is located near Flamingo on your way to Potrero. Before you turn right at the beach at Restaurant Plemar keep on going straight all way to the
back of the road (about 100m). You'll find a fisherman's house with a small eating place next to the beach. Here they'll serve you the catch of the day without paying Flamingo prices.
The restaurant at the Flamingo Marina Resort serves beautiful and substantial tican (Costa Rican) and gringo (American) dishes. And the bartender makes a mean margarita."
