Several Costa Rican beaches received ecological blue flag awards on April 15, and playas Flamingo, Potrero and Conchal were among the recipients. Thank you to those who worked so hard for these important awards. According to the Ecological Blue Flag Program (PBAE) rating criteria, one star is given if the score is graded between 90 and 100 percent (Flamingo and Potrero earned one star) and two stars are given if the score is 100 percent (Conchal earned two). For two stars, a beach must also offer warning signals for national and international tourists, surveillance and first aid services during weekends and high seasons. Great job.
Our condolences to Martin, who is from Potrero, over the recent passing of his wife, Martha of Casa Sunset. Martin and Martha had a property on the main road out of the Potrero plaza, and they bought a finca in Tempate, where they lived for several years.
