Blue Zone Resort


Situated in a quiet town of Playa Avellanas, Blue Zone Resort and Retreats 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.

Health and safety is our number one priority. We maintain the highest standards of cleanliness and meet or exceed all recommended guidelines.

The grounds offer a lush green escape, plenty of space, and feature great facilities that guests can safely 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. Rooms are cleaned to the highest standards.


At Blue Zone Resort and Retreats 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 favorite 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! There is plenty of space for social distancing.


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 7 am-9 am.  The space is breezy and cool, even in the heat of the day, and stays open for use until late in the evening. There is plenty of space for social distancing. 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 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

Blue Zone Resort 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!
