Carrillo has a superb coral reef. It's popular with swimmers and windsurfers, and it's an ideal beach for your kids.

Carrillo is not only a charming beach resort, with a wide choice of friendly and attractive hotels, restaurants, bars and discos, but, unlike other Pacific Ocean resorts, it is also a thriving fishing and farming community.

There are cowboys and cattle drives, fishing boats returning at sunset, exotic fruit harvests, specialty and organic farming, tree  nurseries and reforestation projects and many other authentic and vital Carrillo activities. There are unusual plant and animal species, ancient Indian sites, underwater caves and coastal and mountain nature trails.

Guitar, Spanish, aerobic and dancing lessons and massages are available.
