San Carlos Things to Do

    The trips we booked through Gary's Dive shop were our favorite. We started the day with a 5 hour fishing/snorkeling trip. We cought tons of fish which they fileted on the boat and made the best fresh fish tacos. We were lucky to see the whales and sea lions. That same evening we took Gary's sunset Margarita cruise. It's a two hour trip where we saw the school of dolphins living in the bay. The crew running the trips were great.

    We ate breakfast there twice. Very very good. Everyone loves this place.

    Favorite Dish: French Toast was good, Breakfast burritos, Eggs w/ Chorizo. It's all good. Get a glass of the fresh orange juice. You'll go back - it's that good.

    An upscale restaurant with excellent food; the best in San Carlos. We heard about an "off the menu" steak, shrimp and lobster dinner here which we both tried and it was very good. It's a little more expensive than the reqular menu items, but we thought it was worth it.

San Carlos Shopping

    It's not a touristy farmers market. This is the "people's" market where the locals do their shopping for food, clothes etc.

    It's a collection of tiendas inside a huge building. You can find gorgeous cut flowers, great "french" bread, liquados (fruit juice bars). The market sells meat, vegetables, cheese etc. You can find things like huayaberas (shirts), hammocks, blankets and the like. But, remember this is the local's shop - some tourists won't like it.
