Puerto Carrillo, situated along the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica's Guanacaste Province, is known for its jewel among Pacific beaches. The town itself is very small (less than 500 full-time residents) and is predominantly a fishing village. The population in Carrillo is mainly local residents and still maintains an authentically Costa Rican atmosphere.

Carrillo is located approximately 41 km (25 mi) from Nicoya, the economic and administrative hub of the region.

Access to Carrillo is via paved roads. The paving of the "Road 150" from Nicoya through Sámara to Carrillo was completed in early 2006, which greatly increased the accessibility of the region and dramatically reduced driving times. The total drive now takes about 4 hours from San Jose's Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO) and under 2 hours from Liberia's Daniel Oduber International Airport(LIR).
