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.

Not really much to see as an attraction but you do get some great views and some lovely photos from this point.

This was on the coastal walk from Papagayo to Playa Blanca and a wonderful pit-stop to sit, take in the views and take some lovely photos. Not worth a separate trip out I'd say but great if you are going to do the walk anyway.

We walked past this 'castle' on the way down to Playa Blanca. It's very unusual - big and round and of no obvious function. I guess it was a lookout at one time because it has a very commanding view of the whole coast. Not sure if you can actually get in - we did not try. It is perched... More
