Sitting right by the river, El Castillo town is a quirky little place with its jungle-fringed wooden houses shading vehicle free lanes, all loomed over by the vast hilltop Spanish fort.
Luna del Rio is a delightful little eco-lodge is perched riverside and managed by its friendly Spanish owners.
There are five small rooms,two of them with balconies overlooking the river rapids, furnished with local handmade furniture, and essential amenities include hot water and air conditioning.
There’s a small bar and guests take breakfast on the porch right at the water’s edge. For other meals, the town’s restaurants are close-by.
