          One of the best places we have stayed in. The rooms are very well presented and clean, and the view over the river is sublime. A lovely breakfast, super friendly and helpful owner, and homely atmosphere make this a superlative option for El Castillo.

          What is the best way to get there from San Juan Del Sur? Thank you.

          Sorry for my late reaction. We came from Granada by car, but from San Juan Del Sur I think you can only come there via Managua and then to San Carlos, and from San Carlos you have to take a boat to El Castillo.
