Playa Carrillo steep hill


Going to Playa Carrillo in 2 weeks. I was enticed by the reviews I read on Tripadvisor. Can anyone give me an idea how steep the hill is from the road where the hotels are to get to the beach?

Thank you.

You're welcome @Btravelfood and don't worry it's not that bad....I was trying to be funny with the skateboard comment.

@CanaTico - El Establo was sort of the Monteverde "Riu" 15 years ago. There were a lot of people who'd lived there for a long time who didn't want that sort of development but it's done now and they're getting close on having the road paved too. The changes that brings will make a few hundred resort style rooms on the hillside look like nothing.
