Playa Avellanas is a wonderful ocean beach. Your vacation here can be enjoyed in many different ways, horseback riding, golfing, and sun-bathing to name a few. The beach is very famous among surfers of the world, who travel from all continents to Playa Avellanas because it offers such a variety of waves. There are lefts and rights, reef-breaks and beach-breaks, and it seems you can always find good waves at high tide or low tide. Children also enjoy the little swimming pools filled with tiny tropical fish, left by the tide among the rocks. Playa Avellanas is also 5km from Playa Negra, a wave known to be one of the best in Costa Rica! Driving 20 minutes can take you to the waves (and the night-life) of Playa Tamarindo, Playa Grande and Playa Langosta.
