We spend a wonderful 6 days at Castara Retreats in Hummingbird 1 and the studio and both apartments can be very much recommended. The rooms were tastefully furnished and entirely made out of wood. They fitted in very nicely with the surrounding nature. For people who like to have an ac at night the studio would be the choice. Views from Hummingbird 1 are unbeatable though. Dinner is exellent too, we particularly enjoyed the BBQ night (every Friday). Cocktails menu could be expanded and improved. However the Pina Colada was delicious.
Castara is a beautiful fishermen's village and tourism is luckily a secondary bussiness only. Ice-cream at the COFFEE SHOP (CHENO'S) by the river is very good.
