    Nice comfortable beach for most part. We decided to pay $30 to have an umbrella and 2 lounge chairs and drink/ snack service from Jeffrey from Lolas
    Beach has a big hidden rocky area that can make it tricky to walk into water. Surf school hut available
    Water was comfortably warm. Not crowded. It’s about halfway between Playa Negra and a tamarindo

    Hands down the best horse "tour" I've ever been on. The guides are great, they give you a lot of freedom based on your comfort level, and the tour lasts a long time! We had young children with us, and the guides kept them safe and comfortable.

    We booked with a group of 10 people, $20 deposit was given via Paypal beforehand, and the remaining balance was due at the end of the tour. We wish we knew that we would be expected to pay the rest of the money in cash, we would have been more prepared...

    Learning how to surf with Avellanas Soul Surf School has been one of the best experiences of my live and that has been largely thanks to Julio. His expertise and training helped me to understand the basics of surf (as I was a beginner) and left me hunger of learning more about this life style.
    Every lesson was a new challenge and a new chance to improve but he also made sure that we had a lot of fun!!
    I can’t wait to go back!

    LOVED surfing with those people! More progress every day. Enjoyed every moment with them!! I can't stop smiling about this adventure. Such good memories. Dreaming about a new trip..I'm so thankful for the pictures they made. Gracias Gustavo and Paulo! The most importent thing is safety and having fun. They know exactly how to accommodate the different skill levels of the folks they are teaching. The waves are great. It was a Wonderfull time, and I wanna strongly recommend Gustavos surf school!

    Laura went above and beyond all expectations! She picked me up and dropped me off because I was the only one in my group going. Very nice. In the water she sees everything and makes sure to point it out for you. I've never seen an octopus and she found one! She offered to help with any needs we had for our trip.

    Outstanding skilled instructors got both my son and husband from barely surfing to becoming obsessed with the sport! We always felt safe in the water while learning valuable seasons. Loved it so much that we ended up booking sessions for the whole week. Highly recommend it was so much fun!

    We joined Andrea and his father for an afternoon beach ride which turned out to be better than one could have hoped for! Their horses were lovely, soft in the mouth, well mannered, and easy to move on. Our group was of mixed experience, ranging from first timers through to an experienced rider. Despite this we all had a great time with plenty of canters along the beaches.
    A well deserved five stars!

    Fressie is an awesome instructor and the space is absolutely stunning- a breeze-filled workout in the Avellanas treetops. The classes are super fun and accompanied with great music. Fressie keeps the energy high and the vibes are all-around great. You’ll also leave having had an amazing workout! I definitely recommend checking these classes out.

    Great outdoor hangout spot with a food court , bar , kids play area and vendors. A huge matalpo tree is at the center , the warm lighting creates a very nice ambience for people to get together. There is space for live music , look forward to catching a show sometime. Really nice addition to Playa Avellanas for community building and for visitors to stop by after a day of surfing.

    This tour is a must do! Danielle, Andrey, and their father took great care of us and we had an amazing time. I went on this tour with my brothers and it was a blast. The views were wonderful and we got to run the horses on the beach:) I highly recommend this tour, so much fun!
