Drift Away Eco Lodge


Situated in a quiet town of Playa Avellanas, Drift Away Eco Lodge offers a perfect setting to relax, unwind, and connect with nature. The lodge is located in close proximity to some of Guanacaste’s most beautiful beaches known for great swimming and excellent surfing.

The grounds offer a lush green escape and feature lots of great facilities that guests can enjoy during their stay.


Accommodation options include rooms and villas, suitable for couples, families, and friends traveling together. All of the rooms/villas have private bathrooms, dining tables, and are outfitted with locally made furniture, accented with touches of driftwood decor.


At Drift Away Eco Lodge we care about the environment and strive to make a positive impact on the local community of Playa Avellanas and Playa Negra. We aim to adhere to high sustainability standards in our day to day operations.




Cool off in our beautiful pool, a favourite feature of the lodge. Guests love hanging out by the pool with a coconut in hand, and enjoying its cool waters on a hot day. Families and kids in particular love our kid-friendly shallow end!


Grab a freshly squeezed juice, sample our local brews, and share your Costa Rica adventures with fellow travelers. Our open air Juice Bar is an ideal setting for a refreshing afternoon drink or a healthy snack. During events and retreats, the Juice Bar can serve as an ideal setting for a reception or cocktails.

Open Air Restaurant

Start your day at our open air Breakfast Bar where our delicious locally sourced breakfast is served daily from 7am-9am.  The space is breezy and cool, even in the heat of the day and stays opened for use until late in the evening. During events and retreats, the restaurant is also used for dinners, meetings, and celebrations.


Our newly built Yoga Shala is a beautiful large space for yoga, meditation and other fitness or group activities. Relax as you lookout onto thick layers of deep green jungle as the sounds of geckos and birds punctuate the silence.
Build to accommodate up to 30 people, this screened space is used for our daily on-site Yoga Classes and encourages a healthy daily conscious practice.


Our screened pavillion space is an ideal spot to hang in the evenings or on rainy days. This games room is home to our poll and table tennis tables and is stocked withbooks, board games, and comfy lounge chairs. It’s a perfect spot for those wanting to unwind after a busy day.

During retreats the pavillion can be converted into a space ideal for meetings, ceremonies, and breakout sessions.


Our garden is a perfect space to relax in the afternoon. Read a book in a hammock or hang out at one of our picnic tables tucked away from the sun rays. During retreats, this outdoor space can also be used for casual networking or breakout sessions.

Surrounding Area

Drift Away Eco Lodge is located in a quiet area of Playa Avellanas, about 20 kms south of Tamarindo, in Costa Rica’s Guanacaste Province. The lodge is off the beaten path, just up the road from a small beach known locally as Playa Lagartillo.

There are dirt roads all around us, some monkeys, some lizards, and the area is known mostly for great surfing, yoga and laid beach lifestyle. Despite being remote, we are lucky to be in close proximity to some of Costa Rica’s best beaches for swimming, surfing, and catching the sun rays!
