While walking along the walk ways around Playa Blanca you are likely to come across this structure, it's a historically interesting part of the island and the views are also beautiful. Something to visit and to pass the time, worth a look.

The best thing about visiting here, after walking up through the top side of the Marina Rubicon, were the views. The Castle is nothing spectacular but the landscape is very rugged and interesting, don't think we will return if ever in Playa Blanca again and would not suggest to anyone with walking difficulties, it can also get quite windy here...

Lovely pretty walk along the coast on good paths from centre of Playa Blanca. You go through the marina which is also worth a visit. Continue past the castle and you can walk all the way to Papagayo beaches. If you go here it is definitely worth walking along the coastal path near here for 10 minutes as the geology... More

We decided to walk up here after visiting the marina for the markets. There's not much there but it is a nice walk up, and then you do almost feel like you are walking out to the sea. You can walk right to the end, and I sat down at the end. It is very peaceful just looking out to... More

We visited the Castillo on Segways (see moving segways review). It is off the main promenade past the Rubicon Marina. Whilst we wouldn't have made a special trip there it was interesting to see all the more so as we had a guide with us telling us the history of the Castillo. If you're passing have a look at it...

Very picturesque, we visited through the day but i imagine this would be a lovely vantage point to watch a sunset.

I would suggest its not worth going out of your way to visit but as it was on our walk route between hotel and playa blanca we stopped to have a look. You can't access inside so you are literally walking around the edge. Got some nice pictures from the location

Tables available in side and out. Excellent food, well presented and served. Romantic atmosphere, leading to marriage proposals for some. A complete delight

A walk from the marina to get a close up is a nice way to pass a bit of time and to get to see some nice views. Once there, there is nothing much to do but take photos and walk back, so the children found it quite dull, but the views at sunset and sunrise are really pretty.

Really nice place to sit down and have a look at, nothing there other than this but the scenery is really nice! If you are in the area it is worth a look.
