Playa Carrillo is a 2 km stretch of palm tree lined beach, perfect for quiet relaxation and swimming in the reef-protected ocean. It is rated as one of the best beaches in Costa Rica. There are restaurants in Puerto Carrillo about 500 metres from the east end of the beach. Samara, 7 km west of Playa Carrillo, is a bustling village providing all modern amenities such as ATMs, internet cafés, shops, grocery stores, doctor, dentist, pharmacies, bakeries and restaurants. The beachside restaurants in Samara are the perfect place to while away an afternoon or evening swaying in a hammock and enjoying your favourite cold drink. There is usually music and casual entertainment in the evenings, especially during the high season, but it will be quieter out of season.
The Natural Centre in Samara has fitness and dance classes, as well as a basic gym. There is also an organic cafe and shop. Of course Costa Rica is famous for its ecotourism and all kinds of tours can be arranged for activities both in the area and further afield, such as turtle or bird watching, river or ocean kayaking, in-shore or deep sea fishing.
There are surf schools in Samara where you can rent equipment and take lessons.
The natural wildlife is all around, from the noisy howler monkeys to the chattering parakeets. From our house you will see butterflies, many different kinds of birds (including hummingbirds), iguanas, and occasionally monkeys.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We're Canadians transplanted from England, who fell in love with the country and the people of Costa Rica. We are now retired and split our time between Ontario and Costa Rica.
Why the Owner Chose Carrillo: We love this area because it is casual and low key. This is not a village with huge resorts, casinos or night clubs, but small restaurants and bars providing friendly service and entertainment. Beachwear, cool casual clothing and flip flops are all you will need.
Our house is a modern, open home with clean lines and no clutter.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Open air living with all the modern conveniences and close to beaches and restaurants.
