Nice history and looks good from the outside. Just wish we could have got inside as I am sure they could make a great display

Yes this was an important building in the islands history, situated at the edge of the cliffs with spectacular scenery, just up from Rubicon marina. But it is locked and there is no way to even see inside .It can be accessed via the promenade walk, but, personally, unless you are really into old locked buildings, give it a miss

Couldn't get in and not very large (sighted on the cliffs just above Rubicon Marina). Nearly 300 years old and it would have been nice to be able to have a look inside (although there probably wouldn't have been much to see

It's a Castillo, not much to see. There's no entrance inside. The views from the point are nice in each direction around the bay. If you enjoy walking then go see it but I probably wouldn't recommend going out of your way other than for the nice walk along the promenade.

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.
