Hotel Carara, your Gateway into Carara National Park

  • En Espanol
  • Hotel Carara is a peaceful hotel located in the town of Tarcoles. We offer affordable accommodations right on the beach. Our hotel is a great stop to see the crocodiles and scarlet macaws because of our privileged location; we are so close to the Carara National Park and the Tarcoles River, the main spot for the crocodile tours.

    The hotel has a welcoming layout; the rooms are set round the pool and garden, with open corridors on both floors. The airy open-air restaurant faces the garden which leads to the beach. The garden has some almond trees and twice a day flocks of scarlet macaws pass through, snacking on almonds between destinations. You can't miss them because they announce their arrival with a noise that belies their beauty. This is the best place in the area to see scarlet macaws.Hotel Carara has an ideal position for watching the sunset, just relax at the beach.
