Playa Carrillo

Curving around a bay to form a perfect wineglass shape, the low-key destination of Playa Carrillo remains one of Costa Rica's hidden coastal gems. The beach has retained its laidback atmosphere, with only a handful of pleasant hotels and locally owned restaurants forming the backbone of Playa Carrillo tourism. Swimming, fishing, and boat excursions serve as some of the most popular things to do in Playa Carrillo, while those who want to relax can simply kick back on the soft sand and enjoy the sun's rays. For those wanting a bit more action, the more developed town of Samara offers additional options just 4 km (2.5 mi) away. Playa Carrillo is in Province of Guanacaste.
