5 nights in playa carillo

Hello, this is my first time in this area. I have been to Santa Teresa before. Are there bike rentals and atv rentals in Carillo? Also any recommendations of places to see wildlife would be great!

The beach at Playa Carrillo is completely undeveloped and the town of Carrillo is up a steep hill at the far end of the beach. You can rent bikes in nearby Samara and explore the area. For wildlife hikes check out Samara Trails up in the hills overlooking the coast. http://samaratrails.com/ For lots more info on the Samara/Carrillo area check out the Samara Info Center at http://www.samarainfocenter.com/

Carrillo has a couple of really great restaurants like the Colibri Steakhouse and Hula Jungla for burgers and pizza, Samara has more options because it is a larger town.

I just toured a brand new property in Carrillo called Nammbu and it is beautiful. The restaurant has amazing views of the beach and sunset and is already getting great reviews.

Carillo beach is beautiful and often nearly deserted.

The town also has this very nice restaurant: tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g1096296-d19427…
