Beach and resort lovers.

Just like lots of beaches in this region of Guanacaste’s coast, Flamingo Beach boasts a great deal of natural beauty. You will find extensive mangroves in the area and a lovely view of both Potrero and Brasilito Bays from Salinas Point.

Flamingo also offers numerous entertainment and dining options. There are several bars and restaurants from which to choose from, ranging from budget eateries to fine dining. The night life around Flamingo is particularly good around New Year’s, when an annual party is held at one of the local clubs.

Its location is also convenient for exploring the surrounding area. Not far from Flamingo you will find Las Baulas Marine National Park, an area that protects a large portion of mangrove and coastline. It is also an important nesting site for the endangered leatherback turtle (its nesting season is from November to April). The beautiful Conchal Beach and lively Tamarindo are also close by, as is Palo Verde National Park.

Among some of the activities you can enjoy around Flamingo are canopy tours, ATV outings, horseback riding, nature walks, nocturnal turtle watching tours, golf, sports fishing, and much more. There is enough variety here to make you think twice about leaving!
