I have lived in Casta for over 35 yrs. and have loved every minute. There are lot of activites to do and many clubs to join. It is the perfect environment for the retired person.
Casta is close to everything...a golf course, shopping centers and hospitals.
The environment is quiet, clean and very beautiful. Everything is very well maintained and lovely.
I would truly recommend Casta to anyone who would enjoy a peaceful, healthy life style.
