Reserve your stay at the Luxury Home on the Sand in Potrero, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Located in a secure, gated community nestled on a small peninsula, your Potrero residence is just a few feet from one of the most stunning volcanic beaches in Guanacaste. Due to its orientation, the beach is protected from large waves, making it the perfect place for children and adults to enjoy swimming and paddleboarding in the calm, warm water.
The Potrero home boasts 4,600 square feet of living space with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a dramatic private pool, stunning beach views, and the ideal location for sunset celebrations.
Costa Rica is rightfully renowned for its ecotourism with hiking, ziplining and rafting, but also for the quantity and quality of its surf breaks. Surfing is arguably the most popular water sport in Costa Rica. However, there are so many other ways to enjoy the water, making it a superb destination for everyone. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Paddleboarding & Jetskiing
If you’re up for the challenge, paddleboarding and jetskiing in the beautiful Potrero Bay is a great way to spend a morning or afternoon with friends and family exploring the islands right off of Playa Potrero. To enjoy these and many more water adventures that will make your heart race with excitement, contact Tour Guanacaste and get more information about available events, bookings, and rentals.
Choose from a half-day or full-day private sailing charter with Sailing Guanacaste and see the beauty of Costa Rica from the water. Each charter includes an open bar, food, and a Bluetooth music system, so you can enjoy your favorite tunes while indulging in spectacular ocean views. The full-day trip also includes a full lunch served near a secluded beach that offers an authentic Costa Rican experience.
We also recommend Costa Rica Sailing Center. You can walk to it from the Equity Residences home, as it is located straight down the beach from the residence and shares a venue with Hemingway’s.
