Situated along the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica’s Guanacaste Province, Puerto Carrilo is a jewel among Costa Rica’s Pacific beaches. The town itself is very small (less than 500 full-time residents) and is predominantly a sport-fishing village with a handful of nice hotels, restaurants, two small food markets, and tour operators. While there are only a limited number of hotels and places to eat in Carrillo, many options are available in the nearby town of Samara, just 4 km away. The population in Carrillo is mainly local residents and still maintains an authentically Costa Rican atmosphere. The district has a population of around 1,800 people.[4]

Puerto Carrillo is a small unobtrusive community that has been playing host to some of the most well renown sport fishing boats in the world, since its discovery as a billfish destination over 15 years ago. The tiny harbor affords protection to a small handful of charter and private boats that are here on permanent bases. The beautiful white sand beach has small waves most of the time, and is popular with swimmers and families with kids. Playa Carrillo is never crowded, and it offers nice picnic areas right on the beach. Your car will be within easy reach, wherever you decide to spend your day in the sand.

Carrillo also offers beautiful and secluded small beaches near by, El Roble is a rocky beach with its own waterfall and tide pools. Playa El Sur, beautiful medium size beach surrounded by palm trees (only accessible by boat). Playa Samara, 4 km to the north, is a much larger beach. with waves generally near knee to waist high, and is a popular place for beginning surfers and families.
