My first time in Costa Rica and it was a pleasure. Russell, Scott, John and everyone at El Castillo were amazing. We spent Thanksgiving here and absolutely everything was wonderful. It was one of the best vacations that I have taken in a very long time. Waking up to toucans in the morning and coffee by the infinity pool overlooking the pacific is absolutely breath taking. We took their recommendations for the masage therapist, local places to eat, zip lining ..... you name it, you cant go wrong.. This is exactly the type of boutique environment that I love and they made our vacation special. The people of Costa Rica are very kind and genuine. We will definately be back and will bring friends to El Castillo. Thank you guys for a wonderful experience!!
