You can also order treats to go. We named our shop after a native plant locally called Gavilana, famous for its abilities to cure the upset stomach and more, which we make tinctures from. You will also find here homemade hot sauces, relishes, vinegars and hot oils, as well as colorful paintings and a wonderful space to create and share music. We operate as a tour office as well, and are excited to introduce our newest most adventurous tour: The Big Forest Hike, a two day hike through the mountain forests of the continental divide, dinner and an overnight stay in a farmhouse followed by breakfast and the hike back. Check it out on airbnb by searching for El Castillo, Alajuela, Costa Rica and clicking the 'shared room' box at the top of the page. Also come visit us to find out more! less
