Guanamar - Hotel and sport fishing resort

Guanamar is located in Playa Carrillo on the Mid-Pacific coast of Costa Rica.  Playa Carrillo is one the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches in Costa Rica, where the exotic fauna and flora remain untouched. Sitting in the hotel's bar, you have a great view of spectacular sunsets and smooth waves washing up on the white sand beach.


Hotel Guanamar offers 41 spacious and comfortable rooms which include: air conditioning, hot water, satellite tv, telephone, safety deposit box, coffee maker, and balcony or terrace.


The hotel's open-terrace Bar and Restaurant offers one of the most memorable views of Carrillo bay and beach. Sitting comfortably about 50 feet above sea level, the cool ocean breeze will awaken your appetite for the local specialties, such as the hotel's famous seafood salad, jumbo shrimp and fresh lobster. The restaurant offers a wide variety of dishes from pastas, to salads and favorite cuts of meat.


Guanamar is the ideal base for world-class sport fishing. The bay provides safe harbor for all types of yachts and fishing boats, many of which offer their services with expert crews at very competitive prices. The Continental Shelf lies only 10 miles offshore, a pleasant 30 to 45 minute boat ride to beep blue waters and great fishing. Marlin, Sailfish, Roosterfish, Giant Tuna, Yellow-finned Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Dorado make up part of the challenge that these waters offer to those who come for an unforgettable fishing adventure.


Plunge into a sunny variety of resort activities: horseback riding through dry tropical forests, boat excursions to uninhabited islands, nature walks alive with monkeys and exotic birds, tanning on the generous deck of the outdoor swimming pool, or trying your luck at the casino.


Just a stroll away discover the Costa Rican paradise of your dreams, Carrillo Beach! A picturesque white sand beach tailor-made for surfing, snorkeling, catching rays, building sand castles, and taking romantic sunset walks.
