We stayed there for one week. And I would recommend this place to everyone who likes some quite time in a modern home. The villas are nicely set up. Kitchen with everything you need for cooking (a small supermarket just around the corner) and a small couch to read a book. There's a spacious seperate bedroom and also a big... More

Dear Knut, we are very sorry, that you booked your trip to Avellanas in the driest and hottest time of the year . Yes you are right that our nature is suffering from not having rain and it looks now different than in other parts of the country. The north of Guanacaste is the driest part of Costa Rica and...
