Yes, you can install a GUI on your CentOS droplet and access it remotely. Take a look at the following tutorial:

VNC or Virtual Network Computing is a platform-independent protocol that enables users to connect to a remote computer system and use its resources from a Graphical User Interface (GUI). It's like remote controlling an application: the client computer's keystrokes or mouse clicks are transmitted over the network to the remote computer. VNC also allows clipboard sharing between both computers. This tutorial covers remote access to a GNOME desktop for two users.
