This is situated just past the marina and if you enjoy history it is worth visiting and reading the background.

Wouldn't go out of your way to visit. Good photo point and that's about it. Just off the pathway if your taking a stroll.

If youre at the Rubicon marina then you might as well pop up to the castle. The history of it is quite interesting but theres not much to look at. That said the views from here are quite extensive. One way over to the lighthouse...More

This fortification is built on the end of a rocky headland and you can read about the history of it. If you walk out onto the headland, there are panoramic views across the Marina and over to Papagayo beach.

Saw the castle on the walk from rubicon marina to Papygaya beach didn't realise its age or history. Wouldn't go just to see it however it was a by product of a nice walk.

Castillo has historic interest but not a lot to look at - just a round brick turret however when you walk behind the Castillo you can venture onto the rocks to get stunning views of Papaygo beach.

Not much else though. Ok for a stroll and to take some pics. Managed to pick my way down the rocks to the sea. But there's nothing to do down there either. So scrambled back (challenging in flip flops).

A beautiful area. Great for a leisurely stroll in the evening before dinner on the marina. Beautiful views although don't go if it's very windy!

Not a bad little thing, but not very exciting. Go see it if you're around and have nothing else to do, but you won't get much more from it than you see in the pictures.
