As a historic sportfishing community, Playa Potrero has gotten its claim to fame from avid anglers that cast a line in the waters just off shore each year. After all, the region is known as the sailfish capital of the world. Fisherman reel in record-sized fish in nearly every category, so it’s no surprise that sportfising is the No. 1 activity in the area. Travelers can head out on a half or full-day excursion on the open sea with local charters.

Scuba diving

There are several top diving spots located just off the shore of Potrero, including the chain known as the Catalinas. These small islands were formed by volcanic pinnacles, and have, over time, become one of the best locations from which to view marine life. Divers can find eagle rays, whale sharks, black tip sharks, humpbacks and manta rays underneath the waters depending on the season.

Horseback riding

As a former cowboy region, Playa Potrero is filled with equestrian activities led by experienced instructors. Whether you want to trot down the shoreline of the beach during low tide or traverse through the mountains, horseback riding is a great way to get the lay of the land. Tours typically last two to three hours and provide visitors with a unique vantage point of area wildlife and the stunning landscape. Horseback riding is ideal for beginners and experienced riders. There are several tour companies to choose from in Potrero and neighboring towns.
