          Hello. I was looking at purchasing the Groupon for this trip. The reviews and price looks great to me. I wanted to know what airport people flew into, how far is it from this hotel and what methods of travel did people take? I see that one airport is 3.5 hour away. Did anyone drive that distance or was it better to get shuttle/car service? I was planning on going in August or September.

          Yes there are. There is a very good teacher in Uvita just a few kilometers north of Castillo. Plus there are individual teachers that can come to the hotel.

          Are there zip lining and other adventure tours near by? We much prefer this hotel to the ones we have found near Tamarindo, but want to make sure that we can enjoy the activities that we want this far south.
