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 âRoad 150â³ from Nicoya through SÃ¡mara 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 Joseâs Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO) and under 2 hours from Liberiaâs Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR).
Public buses operate between nearby SÃ¡mara and Nicoya several times a day; express buses operated by Empresa Alfaro also connect SÃ¡mara with San JosÃ© usually twice a day (except weekends). Air service is provided by Sansa Airlines to the adjacent to the Islita Airport.
