About Playa Avellanas

About AvellanasAvellanas is located 20minutes south of Tamarindo, so while town and its attractions are accessible throughout your stay, we are also a bit away (20min by car) in a remote residential beach area, so make sure this is the experience you are looking for and not shops and restaurants in walking distance from your hotel. Our village is predominantly for surfers and individual Travelers, looking to get away from the touristy areas and log time in nature not in traffic.In the North Pacific part of Costa Rica you drive a lot over graveled roads, wich are not always in the best conditions, but a 4WD is not necessary.If you arrive at night you might get scared of the howl of a howler monkey and think it is a 1 ton Gorilla, yes it can happen but the next morning you'd wake up at the sound of countless birds (and monkeys) not to be found in New York, Roma, Vancouver, Mexico City or Rio de Janeiro. The villas are located aprox. 800mts (15 minutes walking) close to the beach. The beachwalk leads through a magnific mangroove and ends at the beach with the famous Rivermouth (Estero) next to Little Hawaii and the beachbreaks of Avellanas, perfect spots for surfing or just to enjoy the crystal clear pacific ocean.Since the mangroove is a protected area, you will find no buildings at the whole beach. Therefore Playa Avellanas is truly one of the most beautiful and relaxed beaches of Costa Rica.We are blessed to swim along with turtles in the River Mouth at any given day of the year, or witness the migration of the seasonal humpback whales from the beach… Every Villa in the Resort has free Wireless-Internet and a equipped kitchen with a fridge in order to prepare your desired meals together with family and friends. We also have in our community an Organic Farm where you can get really fresh tasty organic vegetables, fruits, lettuce etc., to complete your nature experience.If one day, you should not feel like cooking, you find 2 good restaurants in Avellanas itself and more within a short drive (10 min) to Playa Negra. On the other hand you are just 20 minutes away from the famous Tamarindo (Movie Endless Summer II). Here you can find more good restaurants, nightlife and convenient services (supermarkets, banks, farmacies, shops, dentists, etc.).
