Playa Avellanas

Getting Here and Around

You have to drive inland from Tamarindo to Villa Real, where you turn right for the 13-km (8-miles) trip down a very bumpy road to reach Playa Avellanas. It takes about half an hour. There are rivers to cross in rainy season, when you may want to drive via Paraíso and Playa Negra.

Tamarindo Shuttle. If you're without a car, take the Tamarindo Shuttle van; call for current rates. 2653–2626.
