Sailing the Papagayo Winds with the Costa Rica Sailing Center

“As soon as we jumped on the little boat it took off like a rocket. I mean, it just flew! We basically tacked and zigzagged all the way up and through Potrero Bay and back to the sailing center.”


Over the last few months, visitors to the 360 project have spent their time exploring what Flamingo Beach offers. From sports fishing to paddle boarding, penthouse owners and their guests have been doing what they do best: exploring and enjoying Flamingo.


Having visitors to the project has been an opportunity for 360 Flamingo to scope out the activities that most appeal to house owners and their guests.


Most recently, a group of five went sailing with the Costa Rica Sailing Center, located just across the bay from the 360 Splendor del Pacifico Residences.


“It was perfect! Perfect! It lasted about an hour and twenty minutes. We had perfect wind, with the five of us on the Hobie, it was just cozy with perfect company.”


Relaxing on a boat with a few friends and some drinks is one of the most popular pastimes of locals and visitors alike. Especially along Costa Rica’s North Pacific ‘Gold Coast’ that includes the 360 Splendor del Pacifico Residences. A day out along the coast boasts sunny days, warm blue waters, deserted beaches and laid back beach life.

About the Costa Rica Sailing Center


Having opened in 2014, the Costa Rica Sailing Center has been a hub for sunset drinks, relaxed nightlife and a place for children in the expat community to pick up and refine their sailing skills.


With flat waters and a steady 10 to 15 knots of wind, the Potrero Bay that the 360 Splendor del Pacifico overlooks, offers one the best sailing bays in all Central America.

“It was relaxing. The instructor who took us out wanted us to take turns at steering the boat, but we were having so much fun just relaxing and talking, we just decided to sit there and enjoy the sights, scoot along the waves and just have fun. We didn’t want to work. It was our free complimentary sail that comes when you become a member at the sailing center, and we just wanted to relax.”


With the Splendor del Pacifico Residences aimed to be open at the end of this year, homeowners, their friends and the rental management company at 360 are scoping out the activities that condo owners and weekly renters will enjoy the most.



Bespoke arrangements and packages negotiated for the patrons of the Splendor del Pacifico Residences will come into effect later this year following the soft launch of the 36O Flamingo project.


If homeowners elect to have a membership with the Costa Rica Sailing Center, they would be entitled to complimentary sailing lessons and trips.


Anyone that rents their condos and penthouses will have access to discounted rentals on Hobie Catamarans, kayaks and stand-up paddleboard rentals.


During the peak months from November through to April, Sailing is a great activity to enjoy in the Flamingo area. That time of the year, when the Papagayo winds are a bit too strong for other activities, they are ideal for sailing in the Potrero Bay.
