Getting to Playa Avellanas

If your trip is starting from the International Airport, you need to follow the signs to Santa Ana and Escazu. On the main highway to Santa Ana and Escazu (Prospero Fernandez) you will have to continue driving on the highway # 27 with direction to Caldera. From Caldera/Barranca you will have to continue going on North direction and follow the signs to Liberia. You will need to make a left turn at the sign for Puente (Bridge) La Amistad. Follow that road, cross the bridge and head towards Nicoya and Santa Cruz which is 1 hour away.
