Carilo sits in a man-made forest on the waterfront. It is more than your typical beach town, though for those who are looking for a luxurious resort-like experience, this city is an ideal choice. The sand dunes are one of the biggest attractions here because they provide ample opportunity for four-wheeling and off-roading. What else will you find to do here?

Enjoy a Cabin Stay

One of the best reasons to visit is for your ability to unplug and unwind here. This happens in the cabins that are widely booked as one of the most popular forms of accommodations from travelers. While you will find prestigious hotels and various other lodging options, these cabins, often tucked into the forested areas or near the beach, are simply the best option for relaxation and traditional, local living. Take a step back and relax by booking a cabin stay.
