nice walk up to the Castillo, the views are great, a nice hour or so followed by a coffee and beer down at the marina.
The only - nearly - bit of history in PB. However, a good view and photo stop - don't make the visit here specially, but do hire a bike a cycle along the promenade for a much more enjoyable half day/couple of hours. There is a bike hire in Las Coloradas at La Pueblo Shopping Centre.
Dramatic drive up the hill, stunning views of the island. But other than that, the exhibition inside is somehow disappointing, lots of pics and videos from old Spanish pirates movies. But than again, it's a museum of piracy, so why not?:)
For all the reviews that are correct in saying you can't see anything but the outside of the Castillo, it's still an impressive structure (look at the size of the outer wall bricks!). However, to get the most out of a visit here you need to explore a little further. Walk out beyond the Castillo and head down the cliff.... More
We were there October 2009. Nice walk on the evening but not breathtaking expierience.... Good access for all folks with walk difficulties tho...
don't expect anything grand here,you can walk right up to the front door but you wont be getting a peek inside, well and truly locked but the walk and views of the coastline and marina are superb
The "Castillo" is right beside a lovely walkway from the marina to Papagayo beaches. The walk is well paved,pushchair friendly and fairly level with a bit of a climb from the marina.
Really enjoyed walk from Marina Rubicon to this Castillo and then onwards to Papaygo beaches. Its a beautiful spot with a little tower. Its worth a visit just for the the beautiful views of the sea. You can walk right down to rocks and look across at the papaygo beaches. Lovely walk!
Castillo de las Calorades is in a great location on a cliff top promentory, overlooking Marina Rubicon. However, don't expect to see a magnificent castle. It looks very much like the Martello towers to be seen on the English Channel coast. Steps lead up to the door, but the door is well and truly locked. There is no information available.... More
