the street to lola's is a pain but once you arrived, you will be rewarded with a nice beach, great food and an awesome atmosphere, uncomparable to playa tamarindo. Definitely worth the bumpy drive! The restaurant is rather expensive but you pay for the location...More

Very nice place perfect to eat and stay cool. The food and drinks are good. Go see the huge pig is a must. Lots of people gather there.

Took the shuttle from Neptune's Deli tamarindo to avellanas. $12 round trip, bumpy ride but worth it. You can walk the beaches all the way back to tamarindo if you like 5 miles maybe and a river crossing at Langosta Occidental. (Watch tides and current...More

Drove over before heading to the Marriott. The road in is terrible, even with a 4x4, and Lola's staff said to get all the bags out of our car as there is theft there sometimes. The place itself is great - on the beach with...More

Walked to Lola's from the Marriott Resort. Beautiful beach, great surf, awesome atmosphere, good food, good drinks. Tables and hammocks under the palm trees. A local spot where locals surf and hang out. Don't miss it! Be sure to say Hi to Lolita.

There's a great shuttle Avellanas Express three times a day (10, 2 and 5), nicer than most taxis, very reliable and inexpensive ($12 round trip).
