The Castillo de Pavones is a brand new hotel, elegantly perched on a mountainside with a direct view of the famous Pavones point break, and the surfers riding the longest left wave in the world. From the windows and balconies, you can look down on the canopy which slopes to form the Rio Claro River and valley, and witness the birds soaring below over the canopy treetop.

Imagine awakening in a beautiful garden, to the surrounding sight andsounds of monkeys, toucans, and scarlet macaws. Wander out your glassdoor to your private balcony and have your morning Costa Rican coffeewith our resident mama sloth and her new baby, who stare at you while hanging upside-down from a nearby tree. Every sunrise at the Castillo de Pavones brings you a new awakening of orange treetop landscape, and its inhabiting exotic creatures.


Castillo de Pavones is a jungle castle with 5-star amenities. They offer massive 750 sq. ft. suites, all of which have spectacular ocean views. Here, you can enjoy fantastic ocean views fro your 2-person jacuzzi tub and king size orthopedic bed. Enjoy our glass-enclosed restaurant and lounge, offering world cuisine restaurant/room service. At night, bask in the imported fine linens while watching the satellite TVs.

A five-minute walk down the hill brings you to the ocean, river, and directly in front of the beginning of the famous point break wave. A ten-minute walk brings you to the center of town. The hotel can book your boat trip to Matapalo for

" This was by far my favourite stop in the whole of Costa Rica last summer. Aaron and Jaime who run the Castille are some of the friendliest, most hospitable people I have ever met and have truly built the dream for both themselves and their guests.
The location is idyllic and the food is out of this world in both variety and quality. Apart from the wave itself, (which is best described as perfection), one of my favourite memories of the trip was walking back up to the castille after sunset with the fields alight with hundreds of fireflies. Truly magical.
Aaron even let me borrow one of his own boards which I stupidly managed to ding. However, he was so nice about it and reacted like it was no big thing. A great guy who deserves everything he's achieved.
I'm counting down the days until I can return!
All the best guys, Pura Vida and see you soon!

"Aaron and Jaime are two of the nicest and hospitable people you will ever meet. The hotel is unique with every room being different and the food is to die for. The best food in or around the whole southern pacific portion of CR.

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at the castle with the view of the surf and the rum drinks after surfing watching the sunset.

I would recommend the castle to anyone and we will be back later this year."

"A place mostly known by surfers...,
a jungle with a beautiful "Castle" where you never expect it..., a charming unconventional
world-class-cook with his incredible food... :

Traveling a lot around the world, this is one of the most impressive places we ever found. If you tavel Costa Rica without visiting the "Castillo de Pavones", you will miss one of its main attractions!

Do not forget to ask for his famous Wasabi-Tuna!"

"Castillo de Pavones is one of the best places to stay in all of Costa Rica. I travel to Costa Rica frequently and these accommodations are top notch. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about surfing, fishing, and other activities in the area. The breakfast that is included with the room is made to order and is amazing. The restaurant located upstairs can only be described as a swanky California style lounge with great music and incredible views of Pavones. The food surpassed my expectations with creative international dishes (the pumpkin lasagna was my fav) that included filet mignon and fresh sea food. The suites were clean, tastefully decorated and had beautiful stonework throughout. This is the only place I will stay upon my return to Pavones! "

"The view is out of this world, look down on people surfing the famous point and walk 3 minutes from the doorstep of the Castillo to the start of the point break and ocean. The architecture and design is magical. The restaurant is the best food I have had in Central America, all fresh grilled seafood, grilled meats Brazilian style skewers, homemade sides, lots of vegetarian dishes, full bar w a 360 degree view of the open ocean, the bay the jungle tree tops. They have a little white face monkey that lives right there and a sloth in the tree next to the Castillo...the place is sick! "
