San Carlos Information and Highlights

Named after its initial developer, Carlos Tavares, San Carlos is an upscale upper-middle-class suburb in the eastern are of San Diego.

The San Carlos region borders some of San Diego’s most prominent neighborhoods; Del Cerro, Tierrasanta, Allied Gardens, the city of La Mesa, and the Mission Trails Regional Park.

The area is mostly defined by its geographical landmarks, the man-made reservoir Lake Murray and, what the citizens closely hold dear to their heart, what they define as their crowning jewel, The Cowles Mountain (the highness summit in the San Diego region. Formed during the Jurassic and early Cretaceous period, this mountain range is mostly formed from indigenous rocks and metavolcanos).

The San Carlos shrugs of the veil of big cityscapes and curtains of huge buildings for low level single family homes.

The San Carlos area is loved by its many residents of account of its family friendly amenities, its clean facade and, above all, its walkability.


San Carlos is part of East San Diego's environment. A meteorological system that has been described as a semi-arid microclimate. No matter the season, this particular area has mild and dry weather. Almost all the annual precipitation occurs between the months of November and March. Summers are mostly cool and brisk, with only four days averaging over 90ºF while winters are tepid and gentle.


San Carlos is adored mostly on account of the way it costly tempts the residents to vacate their houses and experience hundreds of outdoor activities. Its many mountains and parks, not to mention its immense Mission Trails Regional Park, eternal sources of fun and joy.

And, for those that love a good golf game every Sunday morning, San Carlos Golf Course awaits your tee and clubs.
