Great views of the Atlantic, nice drinks at the museum, facilities a little lacking. But a great place to visit, great photos to be taken and it's free too... BUT: Don't walk alone or even in a pair (unless you are both pretty tough looking!)...More

We were going to Puerto Velero and stopped to see the castle. Nice views of the ocean and its cliffs.
