ITA Alumni Event-Castillo Country Club in San Rafael de Heredia

Hey Alumni!

We are planning another ITA Alumni Event!  We will be taking a day trip to Castillo Country Club in San Rafael de Heredia! 

When:  Friday, August 23rd

Leaving:  From the school in Barva at 10:30 am (With a pickup in Heredia at 10:45 am in Central Park, if requested)

How much:  9,000 colones

The trip includes:

  • Transportation from Barva (or Heredia) to the country club

  • Entrance to the country club and access to all areas including covered swimming pools, jacuzzi, and sauna


Castillo Country Club offers many outdoor activities like mini golf, bocce ball, and badmitten, and there are lots of open areas for playing soccer, football or throwing around a frisbee.  There is also an indoor ice rink for skating, if you are interested!  This would be an additional cost of about 10 USD!

The club has restaurants and snack bars but we will be reserving a rancho to BBQ, so you can bring your own meat to grill and anything you’d like to drink or snack on during the day. We might even share a beer or two with you!  

The bus will be leaving the club to come back to Barva & Heredia at 5:30pm.

Please let Luke ( know as soon as possible if you are interested in going, as we need to make reservations with the transportation. It will be a great time catching up and meeting some new people!

Pay your 9,000 colones at the school in Barva and ask Karen to put your name on the list! If you can't make it to Barva, please send it with someone else or make your deposit or transfer to the following bank account:
