Welcome to Muelle de San Carlos

This small crossroads village – locally called Muelle – was once an important dock (hence the name) as it’s the most inland spot from which the Río San Carlos is navigable. These days it is sugarcane country and it serves as a rest stop for truckers and travelers. It’s also only 27km east of La Fortuna. If you have your own wheels, Muelle can be a quaint, quiet base for visiting Arenal and environs
