Playa Avellanas

Located in Guanacaste’s Golden Coast, Playa Avellana boasts world-class waves and relaxing shores that make for a surfer’s heaven. Locals even call it “little Hawaii,” since the offshore breakers reach up to 5.5 meters, attracting seasoned surfers from around the world.

In this beach town, you’ll likely meet “Lolita,” the 400-kilogram pig – a local celebrity – who wanders casually around the beach to bathe in the sun.

A tranquil Playa Avellanas offers white sand beaches and turquoise waters.
