We stayed in the Seascape apartments at Castara and can highly recommend both. Castara is a beautiful place with a friendly relaxed feel. The drive there is a little slow and windy but well worth the effort as every contour yields a fantastic view. You are also close to untrammeled beaches and beautiful rainforest. The Seascape apartments are very comfortable with a spectacular view over the beach and facing the sunset. You can walk to all amenities so a car is not strictly necessary for the village but handy if you want to explore further afield. You can hire a car for a day or so from Castara if you don’t get one from the airport/port on arrival. There is also a local bus service. There is good snorkeling off the point in front of the apartments and well-marked rain forest trails about 30 mins drive away at Gilpin Trace. If you are planning to self cater then stock up before you arrive as there is limited grocery shopping available in Castara - although you can buy fresh fruit and vegetables in the village. Makes sure you pre order bread from the ladies at the local outdoor oven on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
