Carrillo

Although Carrillo doesn't regularly grace the covers of glossy travel magazines, this North Pacific Coast destination is well worth a visit!

Carrillo Vacation Packages

From Carrillo, San Jose is 95 miles to the east, while Cartago is around 110 miles to the east.

Sit back and relax while taking in the scenery at a local beach. Jaco Beach, 60 miles to the east, and Herradura Beach, 55 miles to the east, are two great picks.

Make sure that your stay is a memorable one by exploring the nearby natural attractions. Barra Honda National Park, located just 25 miles away, is highly recommended.

Don't forget to visit Carrillo Beach. Also consider La Selva.

Head over to Islita, 5 miles from Carrillo. It's the home of Jungle Butterfly Farm and The ARA Project. Buena Vista Beach is another interesting option. It's 7 miles away, and is home to Samara Beach and Garza Beach.

Don't forget to see Nosara. It's approximately 15 miles northwest of Carrillo and it features some excellent visitor attractions, including Safari Surf School, Nosara Beach and Frog Pad. Nosara Wildlife Rescue and Ostional National Wildlife Refuge are some more sites that are worth a visit.

Most often, a destination's cultural heritage can be discovered in its simmering pots and pans.

Travelers will no doubt notice an abundance of pork and chicken, a couple of characteristic regional ingredients.

Some popular dishes you might like trying are casado and arroz con pollo (rice and chicken).

No meal can come to an end until you've had dessert. Tres leches (custard flan) is bound to do the job.

Satisfy your thirst with a round of cold, crisp beer. Bavaria is a good choice.

Not in the mood for alcohol? Fresco de frutas (fruit shake), is a nice alternative.

You're likely to see some locals savoring a glass of Ron Centenario, a much-loved liquor here.

Perhaps one of the most practical gestures you can present to the locals you meet on your travels is to put in the effort to familiarize yourself with a little of their language. ¡Buena suerte! is the Spanish way to say good luck. ¡Feliz cumpleaños! (happy birthday) is also helpful.

See how the locals have a good time at Independence Day, a national day of festivities which takes place on the 15th of September.

Time to say "Adiós" to Carrillo? Pick up some mementos with the last of your colones to ensure you never forget your terrific trip.

Daniel Oduber International Airport is your most convenient airport at 50 miles to the north, so be sure to leave plenty of time.
