Hi there

How can I help you?




After years of anticipation, the most exciting part of the growth in the Flamingo Beach area of Guanacaste is the resurgence and re-launch of the full-service Marina in Playa Flamingo. Final approvals have been stamped and development of the Flamingo Marina has begun.  A Costa Rican Coast Guard station is already in place in Flamingo along with other marine services. The new Marina at Playa Flamingo, Costa Rica, will be a huge boost to local real estate investment opportunities and tourism business in the area.


Projected to be home for 180 boat slips, including slips for luxury yachts.   The docks will range from 45 to 125 feet in length.  Current plans call for commercial buildings that will have 6-8 restaurants and local shops featuring local wares and delicacies.  Plans also include condominiums on top of the commercial space that will be for rent only.   The Flamingo Marina is an exciting addition to this popular area of Costa Rica.  At the new Flamingo Marina, a convention center is proposed to hold up to 800 people and a 10,000 square meter area will be set aside for restaurants, shopping, and retail shops with 300 parking spots, making it convenient and easy to enjoy the new center of excitement in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. In keeping with Costa Rica’s dedication to the environment, a thorough Impact Study was conducted, ensuring minimal impact on aquatic life.







The brand new Flamingo Marina development site is a sight to see, totaling over 150,000m2!  The site itself consists of 175 wet slips, a dry boat storage facility, fueling station, heliport, as well as two mixed-use retail and residential sites.


The development site will also feature a 6.2-acre peninsula being created for a future hotel site and to support the already existing coast guard facility. The project began in December of 2019.  Phase One is scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2023.  Phase Two completion following in 2025.  The project has already scaled to an estimated $50M, and as of May 2020, is slightly ahead of schedule!





The brand new Flamingo Marina is currently being constructed within the protected bay between the luxury and safe beach towns of Playa Flamingo and Playa Potrero. Although named “Flamingo Marina”, the marina itself is located on the western corner of Playa Potrero. On a national level, the Flamingo Marina is plotted between the already existing Costa Rican marinas. The first being the Papagayo Marina, north of Flamingo, which is home to the Four Seasons and Andaz Hotels. The second being the Los Sueños Marina, south of Flamingo, in Herradura. The geographical location of the Flamingo Marina will truly fit perfectly along the Pacific or “Golden” coastline! The Flamingo area is a very popular and well-known travel destination, and has been home to a strong boating and fish community for 30+ years now. Flamingo and Potrero have a combined 70+ boats, stationed and buoyed within the bay. With the construction of the new Flamingo Marina, and the pre-existing buoy locations, boat and yacht owners will have plenty of options for both convenience and price. The future is strong for Flamingo and Potrero, and with the Flamingo Marina on its way, the opportunity for world-class sport fishing, yachting, and luxury vacationing is more immense than ever! The Flamingo Marina, and Playa Flamingo, and Playa Potrero are located less than 1-hour drive from the Liberia International Airport (LIB).

Now is a great time to invest in Flamingo!

The Mission of Marina Flamingo Development Group is to play a foundational role in making the Guanacaste Coast into the premier ethereal coastal community in all of the Americas. Our focus is to create a synergistic relationship between the environment, people, and the local community by encouraging sustainable practices of eco-tourism. 

For the environment: Marina Flamingo is a socially and environmentally responsible project, aware of the importance of the ocean and the rich biodiversity of the Guanacaste Province.  Our focus is the promotion of local ecotourism, the encouragement of sustainable economic practices, and creating a vibrant community through proper environmental monitoring programs and social development projects. 

For Safety:  During this first phase, the initial actions that are being performed include pedestrian and traffic safety signaling, environmentally site preparation, estuary, and ocean water quality testing. The concession site perimeter will be secured and access restricted.  Our goal is to reduce human risk and accidents, avoid traffic incidents and provide a healthy ecosystem.

For the community: Marina Flamingo will be the heartbeat of the community. This development will allow our local entrepreneurs to showcase their skills, professionalism, and the “Pura Vida” lifestyle of Costa Rica. The establishment of key alliances with the government and local organizations will ensure a dynamic community.

Community Update: As of October 8th, 2019, the project is approved with all environmental and construction permits for phase 1. This phase is critical to the project as it will cover the construction of break walls and dredging of the basin. 

The construction of this first phase will require long working shifts, substantial amounts of rock & material, and the constant presence of heavy machinery. We anticipate that this first phase will take approximately two years to be completed, by that time the community of Flamingo will have a state-of-the-art fully operational marina.

Safety is our number one priority and for that, there are several precautions necessary. 

First and foremost, we will need to take full control of the working site, in order to do so we will need to have the current ramp users vacate the space by November 20th, 2019. We will begin with our on-site works shortly after the site is under full control.

After all these years we are proud to tell you that this project is now a reality.  Our visitors and clients will have a safe and memorable experience at the Marina Flamingo The socioeconomic impact to our community will bring new opportunities for all of our entrepreneurs.
