Las Brisas Restaurante y Bar, the only beach-front restaurant or bar in Potrero. Great seafood and a great view.

Abriendo Mentes  is a US 501(c)3 non profit organization with an office and classroom space in Playa Potrero. The organization is primarily dedicated to teaching English and technology skills to youth and adults in the area. Additional activities are provided weekly for children, including art, sports, dance, and music activities. Another focus of Abriendo Mentes is community engagement, which includes a women's microenterprise initiative called Mujeres Activas de Potrero (MAP). MAP consists of a group of local women who sew handbags, yoga bags, wristlets, and do other sewing repairs or custom-made products. They sell their wares in The Shop, in the office next to Abriendo Mentes. Volunteer and internship opportunities are available year round; minimum commitment is usually 3 months.
