Where to stay in Playa Carrillo

Budget-friendly inns and mid-range hotels make up the bulk of accommodations in Playa Carrillo. Most options hug the eastern shore of the town's small bay. Even if you stay a few streets back from the beach itself, you'll never be more than a few minutes from the shore, and you're likely to enjoy complimentary breakfast and free Wi-Fi. Just to the west, Samara offers more options suited to a range of travel types.
