Vida Verde Guesthouse is located 20 minutes of a nice walk from the beach. Avellanas, our favorite of all is a long and white sandy beach that will make any picky traveler happy. Surfers or swimmers, bath tanner and shade lovers, waves and small pools adepts, it has it all!
Guanacaste Province is the driest of Costa Rica with 100% sunshine from November to May and occasional rains from May to October. September and October being the rainiest months of the year but still very nice.
