I know nothing about the organized tours. But we easily went to Potosi on our own by bus. And once there, we could pick and choose restaurants, activities, etc. For the record, the journey was safe and fun and everyone we encountered was friendly &...More
About 45 minutes south of the Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo resort is this wonderful beach area. As the river meets the Pacific Ocean, you have a tranquil fishing village, that welcomes tourists and locals alike, to enjoy the many restaurants and the "endless beach"....! After a bite to...More
We had a wonderful day in Barra de Potosi. Our host at our accommodation had recommended going down to this wee village south of Zihuatanejo, and because we had a car, we did so.
There were 4 adults and 2 children and we thoroughly enjoyed...More
We spent half a day at Barra de Potosi. It's a sleepy fishing village, that apparently is like Zihuatanejo was 60-70 years ago. When I say sleepy, I mean SLEEPY. Not much going on there at all. We had some drinks and snacks at a...More
Depending on when you visit Barra de Potosi, a tiny fishing village at the end of the road you can find hundreds of birds, whales jumping off shore, amazing surf fishing and miles of beach to wander...or you can find a few beach side restaurants...More
500 pesos plus tips for a one hour tour in a panga to see a dozen birds at most. Nothing like others have claimed to see. One pelican close up, a cormorant, and an egret were all our guide could find. I was much more...More
We took a tour here and honestly, it was disappointing. Yes, it's a lovely mangrove swamp, but the waters were low and there was virtually no wildlife; comparing it to the laguna in Acapulco which teems with birds it's very disappointing. The shanty restaurants are...More

When we visited Potosi in September 2017 there were very few boats at all in the area. The river mouth opens and closes to the ocean by sedimentation & currents at certain times of the year so there is not a good natural harbor for boats in Potosi.
There certainly are no boats that most vacationers would think of as "charters"... meaning nice, good-sized, modern, well-equipped, comfortable day or half-day hires. No docks. No marinas. No support businesses. Those types of vessels and services can be found easily in nearby Zihuatanejo.
In Potosi there were a few small, bare-bones Panga boats which could likely be hired... but these appear to be mostly used by a handful of locals to supply the beachfront seafood restaurants at certain times of year... or for a pleasure cruise or to shuttle people across the river to the peninsula/island.
Perhaps things change slightly at other times of the year, but I'm confidant saying anyone looking for charter fishing trips would be better off making the short trip to Zihuatanejo where there are always tourist focused charters available.
