Summary

We are located aprox. 800mts (10-15 minutes walking) close to Playa Avellanas.
The beachwalk leads through a magnific mangroove and ends at 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 also organize your boattrip to the most famous waves Witches Rock and Ollies Point. Ask us, we can tell you when to go. With us you also get the best rates & the best captains.
A good Yoga Studio is only 500m away at the beach. Other nearby options are in Tamarindo and Playa Negra (ask the owner).

ABOUT THE SURF CAMP


LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS



In Playa Avellanas, there are 6 different peaks close to each other  with sand or lava reef seabed. They work with S, SW, W or N swells. Both the beachbreaks and the reefbreaks are pretty good. The waves are playful most of the time and you will have great fun riding them. Ideal for manouvers or getting barreled in relatively mellow tubes. The sensacion of being inside the tube with warm and crystal clear water and seeing the beautiful beach makes Avellanas the place you will never forget and the one you will always want to come back.

There are good waves in the area all year round. You have 6 very consistent surfbreaks in Playa Avellanas plus the nearby spots Playa Negra, Tamarindo and Playa Grande. Other options include a boattrip to Witches Rock and Ollies Point or explore the beaches 1 hour to the south.



CAMP CHARACTER



Avellanas is a quiet pueblo with very good waves at the beach and has around 50 inhabitants. If you arrive at night you might get scared of the howl of a howler monkey and you'd think 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, Munich, Mexico City or Rio de Janeiro.
Las Avellanas complex has only five equipped villas and is personally run by its owners. Our vision combines the simple beach life with the comforts of everyday life. Each villa is a 50-square meter dwelling of balanced construction - inner gardens and outdoor hammocks.

Designed by one of Costa Rica's most recognized architects, Victor Cañas, Las Avellanas Villas again displays Cañas unmistakable integration of inner spaces with outdoor spaces, making nature a part of every villa's spirit.

Built with materials such as reforested wood, cement, and glass, each villa is a small oasis where every detail was planned to provide tranquility for the guests... from the family-sized bedroom with a queen size bed and a bunk bed (that sleeps four), an open-sky bathroom, and teak terrace with hammocks, a equipped kitchen (fridge, coffeemaker, toast oven, hot plate, the basic stuff to cook with) with floor & ceiling fans and interior surfboard racks, private bathrooms with hot water.

This reviewer told us :

I recently stayed for a week at the Las Avellanas Villas. It was my second trip to Costa Rica, returning after three years to purely stay at the Las Avellanas Villas and soak up the surf, sun and natural beauty of the area. I really can recommend staying at the Las Avellanas Villas with its relaxed atmosphere and its luxury comfort. Easy to walk to the secluded beaches or hang out at lolas beach bar for a cold beer and great food. Once again thanks for a great stay Las Avellanas - I'll be back!

Surfing:

Very good individual surf lessons

Other (e.g. Surroundings, Nightlife, etc.):

Bars and clubs 20 min. away by car in Tamarindo. Good italian restaurant in 5 min. walking distance around the corner.
