SURFING 

surf_08

Surfing "low-down" from the Owner:    There is a great spot for beginners called "Left Overs,” which has a sandy bottom with consistent mild lefts.  For intermediate surfers, there is a really nice beach break sandy bottom with lefts and rights.  For advanced surfers, there is the famous point break, which is rocky—no coral but not for beginners nonetheless.  For those wanting to venture to the famous point break, the Castillo’s staff pro is more than willing to go out with them and teach them the break to avoid safety concerns.

Detailed Surfing Reviews / Descriptions from LEUX

“Costa Rica has become the darling of the Central American surf scene by providing consistent, fun, small to medium-sized beach and reefbreaks, but only one wave has stood head and shoulders above the rest. Pavones is the most awe-inspiring wave in the country and one of the longest lefts in the world. Perfect, ruler-edged, freight-train fast envelopes spinning down a benign cobble and sand point deep in the jungle. The Golfo Dulce (Sweet Gulf) provides a watery divide between Pavone’s lefts and Matapalo’s rights over on the Osa Peninsula, whilst the surrounding lush curtain of rainforest hides many other spots…”  Read More

HORSEBACK RIDING

Tiskita Biological Reserve

The horseback trail that loops through Tiskita Biological Reserve takes about three hours. Most of the trail is in the rainforest, and Tiskita’s horseback riding guide Paulo usually spots monkeys, sloths, macaws, or other wildlife along the way. When the tide is right, a section of beach can be included on the way back.

Beach Ride

The most popular beach ride we offer is to Rio Coco. Rio Coco is a coconut-fringed river that flows out of a rainforest valley, into the ocean. The river marks more or less the start of the Conte Burica Indigenous Reserve. It takes about an hour and a half to get there, and it is a great place for a swim.

The paradise-like beach is typically very quiet, you may be the only person there.

Ride to Pavones

Another beach ride is to go to Pavones, the small surf town a few kilometers north from Tiskita. Along this beach ride you may see the locals fishing and surfing. When there is a good swell in Pavones, you can watch surfers from all over the world ride the famous wave. Pavones also has some small restaurants and shops.

Conte Burica Indigenous Reserve

This five hour ride starts out like the ride to Rio Coco (see above). From Rio Coco the trail cuts right through the rainforest (for the experienced or adventurous rider only), after which it winds through a mix of rainforest and pasture with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and the Golfo Dulce.


Waterfall Tour

P1020123-768x1024

There are spectacular waterfalls in and around Pavones. On this guided tour, your guide will take you to all of the must see sites. Experience the the incredible rush of fresh water as it cascades from the mountains above. This is an unforgettable experience!

GUIDED 2-3 HOUR NATURE HIKE

img_010

There are many options for guided walks. An easily accessible trail is “the stream trail”, a trail that follows a small creek through the rainforest. A longer and tougher hike is “the back trail”, a trail that loops around the reserve.

Sport Fishing / Deep Sea Excursion

The Castillo de Pavones faces the Gulfo Dulce, a large fjord. Here’s a summary about the Golfo Dulce by George W. Bassel: “The Golfo Dulce in Costa Rica is one of three tropical fjords in the world. This unique aquatic habitat is home to a great diversity of marine life including dolphins, sea turtles, tropical fish, and is an important place for humpback whales and whale sharks to both breed and give birth. The beaches surrounding the Golfo Dulce also serve as a major nesting ground for hawksbill, Olive Ridley and leatherback ocean turtles.” It is possible to go fishing with a local fisherman for Red Snapper, Yellowfin Tuna, Roosterfish, Kingfish, Dorado, Mackerel, and more.  Read More
