Car: Not Necessary

I have driven from California all the way to Costa Rica and seen many beaches....Potrero beach is the best. We are right on the warm blue Pacific ocean with lots of activites immediately at hand. Whether you are a water person: swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, sailing, jet-ski; or an adventure person: quads, horseback riding, zip-lining, river rafting; or a nature person: volcanos, waterfalls, hiking, bird watching......Potrero beach is surrounded by it all. We can help you do any or all of the activities above. We are experts at helping clients with their itinerariesr . There are side-trips to Monteverde cloud forest, Arenal and Rincoln de la Vieja volcanos, Palo Verde national park with a river boat excursion to see crocodiles on the Tempisque river, zip-lining on the Canopy Tour, or even a 1 or 2 day trip to Granada, Nicaragua......we want your trip to Costa Rica to be one of the best ever!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My name is Mike Hopkins. I am a retired school teacher, contractor, tour operator and zoo director. Yes, zoo director. I built the zoo in my home town of Bakersfield, California. When I traveled the world looking for a perfect place to live that combined the best of a healthy lifestyle and a dedication to preserving nature, Costa Rica topped the list! My wife, Irma is Costa Rican and we enjoy sharing this wonderful country with others, especially new-comers to the tropics. We invite you to come stay with us, and promise to do our best to make your vacation to Costa Rica a great one.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Potrero:
Actually I built the six condominiums here on Potrero Beach, called Twin Dolphins. We live in one of the the two Penthouses that occupy the third and fourth floors. We have two bedrooms in our Penthouse condo on the third floor that we rent, with Breakfast included. I actually drove from California to Costa Rica, visiting many of the beautiful cities and beaches in Mexico and all the Central American countries. When I got to Potrero Beach, Costa Rica I realized that I found the perfect spot, with beautiful beaches all around, jungle and mountains behind, parrots and monkeys everywhere, schools, restaurants, shopping and amenities close by.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Poterero is a safe and secure beach. It is ideal for swimming, snorkeling and taking fabulous beach walks in a quiet community setting. If you want a loud, disco, late-night partying atmosphere, you are in the wrong place. Our guests like to relax and rejuvenate....with peaceful walks and beautiful sunsets. Our days come complete with laying in a hammock with gentle ocean breezes or taking a dip in our sparkling pool, or hiking and reconnecting with nature. I feel like I have added a year to my life for every year I have lived in Costa Rica. I moved permanently in 2001 and my only regret is that I did not do it sooner.
