Directions to Special Places Potrero / Flamingo Beach From the Liberia International Airport

You can find full Google Maps directions here:

1.  Turn Right from the airport entrance on Rt. 21 and continue South through Comunidad to Belén. The Road between the airport and Belén is well paved and passes through sugar cane farms and there are small towns along the way.  You will also pass Do It Center and some other stores in a group. You’ll find abundant places to stop for a cold drink and snacks. Caution: Costa Ricans drive like maniacs!  They also have a habit of walking along the edge of the road, so be careful! 

2.  After approx 28 km you will pass by the Belen Catholic Church on your left.  In another 400m, you will see a well-marked and busy three-way intersection. You’ll see a new commercial strip with the Belen gas station on the Southwest corner and a lot of signs indicating to turn right (onto route 155) for Tamarindo, Potrero, Huacas, Brasilito and other towns.  Take this right turn and head for Santa Ana.

3.  Turn Right and follow signs to Flamingo, Huacas and Tamarindo. You will pass through Santa Ana on your way to Huacas.  Huacas is a small commercial area at the base of a hill that has building supply stores and other businesses.  Stay right at the big “T-Intersection”, proceeding
onto Route 180.  Be careful not to take that left turn off the “T”… that’s the way to Tamarindo!  Very soon after the “T” you will see Super Compro Huacas (a big grocery store) on your right.  A few hunded meters past that you will see another large “T-Intersection”… this time it tees off to the right.  Take this right turn towards Brasilito, Westin Conchal, Flamingo, etc.

4.  On the way to Brasilito you will pass the Westin Reserva Conchal, and the road will bend to the right as you approach Brasilito.  Cross the small single-vehicle bridge into Playa Brasilito and keep the Brasilito soccer square on your left as you come to a 90 degree turn to the right.  The Tiki Restaurant is situated on this corner property and has a nice view of the ocean.  Take this right at the Tiki and stay on the main road.  In a few kms you will see a large fork in the road, with the Banco Nacional on your left.  The right fork leads to Potrero, so stay straight and make the sharp curve to the left.  Drive along the beach road with the ocean on the right.  Cross over a small bridge and the road curves to the left in front of the Mariner Inn.  Take the first street to the right (Economy Rent-a-Car) going up the hill. 

5.  Proceed up the hill for 100 meters and you will find the Special Places office on the left!
