Destination guide

Surfs up! Fun in the sun with a day at the beach

Playa Avellana offers miles of white sand beaches along the sparkling blue-green waters of the Pacific Ocean. Surfers from all over the world come to Costa Rica's famed Golden Coast region to hang ten and ride the enormous waves, some of which reach up to 20 feet high. Set in Guanacaste, a province in northwestern Costa Rica, your Playa Avellana vacation rental provides easy access to a host of nearby nature preserves and national parks. Take a break from the surf and spend your days exploring lush green space teeming with wildlife.

Things to do

Nightclubs to national parks— fun lurks around every corner

Your Playa Avellana vacation rental is just a 30-minute drive from the popular beach town of Tamarindo. The laid-back spot is dotted with charming restaurants, boutique shops, and spas. In the evening, Tamarindo comes alive as nightclubs and bars bustle with patrons dancing to Latin music. Looking to get lost in nature? Playa Avellana is just a 40-minute drive from Las Baulas National Marine Park, known for its huge population of leatherback sea turtles. Crowds line the beach every year from April to September, when hundreds of baby turtles hatch and make a break for the water.


All's swell that ends swell—surfing safari adventures

Catch the massive swells that make Playa Avellana a year-round surfing hotspot. If you're not sure you can hang with the pros, sign up for a surf lesson. Charter boats are also available for deep sea fishing, scuba diving, or snorkeling excursions. If you prefer your adventures to be on dry land, take a horseback ride along the beach, or play 18 holes at a nearby golf course. Or enjoy a leisurely afternoon at the beach as you soak up some rays and curl up with a book. Later on, sip a drink in a waterfront bar and watch as the sun dips into the ocean.


Sunny skies and warm waters—the beach beckons year round

Playa Avellana offers ideal beach weather, with high temperatures, sunny skies, and warm waters throughout most of the year. Sun seekers fill the beaches from January through April when it's dry, and daytime highs climb to the low 90s. Playa Avellana has heavy rainfall from May through December, and daytime highs dip slightly into the low 80s. July through October are particularly wet periods so make sure you bring an umbrella. Evenings are lovely practically year-round in this tropical setting, with lows rarely falling below 70 degrees.
