ABOUT US

Villa Ave del Paraíso is an intimate seven-bedroom bed & breakfast nestled just a leisurely three-minute stroll from the sun-kissed shores and surfing haven of Playa Avellanas. Our guest rooms are arranged in a U-shape surrounding our tranquil outdoor pool, complemented by inviting wooden lounge chairs and swaying hammocks to bask in the warmth of the Guanacaste sun.

At Villa Ave del Paraíso, we offer more than just a place to rest your head. For those seeking mindfulness and inner tranquility, our thatched yoga palapa beckons as the perfect sanctuary for your yoga practice. Our communal living room and kitchen area provide a welcoming space for forging connections with fellow travellers, or simply unwinding with a captivating book or a movie on our large TV. You'll find our fully-equipped kitchen stocked with everything you need to prepare your own lunch and dinners, as we help kickstart your days with a complimentary, hearty vegetarian breakfast.
