Four of us stayed at the Mot Mot apt at Hidden Cottage Castara this summer and had a wonderful time. The cottage is clean and spacious, with a well-stocked kitchen and a huge porch perfect for watching birds, playing cards, and relaxing. The pool is nice for cooling off in on those hot hot August afternoons. Castara is small and peaceful with a beautiful beach and plenty of friendly people. The folks who look after the house were very helpful in setting up for us whatever activities we wanted to do. They arranged for someone to drive us to Sunday School in Buckoo Bay (a great sunday evening street festival), to the rainforest, and to take us out fishing one day. (We considered renting a car, but the tiny curvy roads and the left-side-of-the-street driving scared off us Americans.) Everyone was super friendly and we had a lot of fun. There's a newly opened grocery store on the beach in Castara. It's small but had everything we needed for our week-long stay. All-in-all this is a great place for a restful and fun vacation.
