Just six miles south of the popular tourist beach town of Tamarindo in Costa Rica, is a pristine beach loved by locals…and the tourists who can find it.
Playa Avellanas is an oasis at the end of a long warren of dusty, bumpy dirt roads. There are no souvenir shops here, no high-rise hotels, not even a village.
I tried surfing here for the first time, with my two teenagers. How can one experience be humiliating (me) and at the same time amusing (them)?
