Welcome to The Shack

One of the first things I did when I got to Playa Potrero, even before hitting the beach, was to visit The Shack – an open air restaurant on the main drag through town. It had great reviews online and just looked like a cool place. Guess what? It is.

Owner Jay Macy-Moore has been operating it for just a year and a half but it’s been around for more than a decade. He and his wife, Becca, found it on a scouting trip and snapped it up. It’s been his pet project and you can tell. There’s a lot of love in the little hangout.

The food’s good, the prices reasonable and the service with a smile is wonderful. There are activities to enjoy every week like the Sunday morning jazz or the monthly trivia contest, but honestly, it’s just a great place to hang out.

Great people! From the left – Dad Chris, james, Mom Justine and Sophia!

On my third visit, I met this great family on vacation from Britain. Lovely people and they were enjoying The Shack as much as I was. You’ll see business men conducting meetings, families, singles, and couples there … oh, and the occasional cow trotting by.

Walking home from The Shack I met this family, too!

I’m giving you another “must visit” if you get to this part of the world. I guarantee they’ll smile and make you feel welcome!
