Eco Venao is constantly evolving, but its essence remains the same - to be a place for guests and residents alike to relax and enjoy themselves, maintaining a deep respect for their surroundings. We firmly believe in having 'serious fun'. With this in mind we offer our guests a varied range of activities.

If you find that simply relaxing in a hammock is what suits you best there are several options. For more privacy and outstanding views we suggest El Ranchito by the campsite - also a favorite for yogis. For a more social location just head over to the Paragua next to the Lodge, you might even find that dancing is more appropriate than lying in the hammock. Right on the beach you can lounge in the shade of the 'Hammockarium' after an invigorating swim in the ocean.

For those that seek more active entertainment…

- Surfing on Panama's most famous beach break. You can get rental boards at Mano Surf Community, only a 30-minute drive away in Pedasí.
- You can rent horses and get a tour of the reforestation project, or go for an exhilarating gallop on the beach.
- Rent kayaks and venture out in Playa Venao bay - not for the meek.
- Rent snorkeling equipment and discover the local underwater flora and fauna.
- Go for a hike up Las Escobas Creek to the quaint waterfall for a refreshing dip.
- Take advantage of the sandy volleyball court right next to the Paragua to play some ball, by day or by night.
- Games Room with darts, table tennis, and table football!
 

Located Near


Eco Venao's most obvious attraction is Playa Venao and its famous beach surf break. However, if you fancy venturing a little further away, there are great sites worthy of a visit.

Other Surf Breaks
There are other great surf breaks in the area, such as Madroño Beach, which is the next beach over from Venao. If you're feeling very motivated, find transportation out to Guanico or Cambutal - a couple of hours' drive away, but well worth it once you are there. La Garita and Playa El Toro in Pedasí are especially popular with body boarders.

Achotines Bay
For those who prefer calm waters to the surfer-friendly waves of Playa Venao, La Playita is a perfect option, only a few kilometers up the road towards Pedasí. Protected by a rocky island formation at its seaward entrance, its an ideal place for swimming and frolicking in the water. Snorkeling is fun here, and the white sandy beach certainly fits the bill of what most people consider a tropical paradise.

Isla Iguana
This idyllic island was declared a nature reserve in 1981, and is a favorite with scientists, biologists, and Panamanian and international visitors alike. The island has a surface of 53 hectares (130 acres), and includes two stunning white sand beaches. Isla Iguana is home to many seabirds and marine species, and is an important nesting ground for many species of sea turtles. The surrounding waters are also visited every year by two species of whales that migrate from the cold polar waters to warmer waters in the tropics to mate. It is an ideal place for snorkeling and diving, as wildily colored tropical coral fish abound! It is also a very popular bird watching location.

Isla Cañas
This long narrow island is separated from the mainland by barely 300 meters of swampy estuary and in 1994 it was declared a Wildlife Refuge. The Isla Canas area has a very high ecological value due to its variety and extension of mangrove. However, for many people its main attraction is the 10 kilometer sandy beach that faces out to sea, where over thirty thousand turtles arrive each year to lay their eggs. Five out of the six Pacific Ocean marine turtle species come to Isla Cañas. The highest concentration of turtles arrives between September and November, but turtles continue to arrive throughout the year. It is the most important nesting site for sea turtles on Panama's Pacific coast. Island locals have traditionally harvested and sold turtle eggs as a way of earning a living. Recent campaigns have tried to promote tourism as a more turtle-friendly way of earning an income. Locals now work together with the National Environmental Authority (ANAM) to protect the turtles and their eggs. We can happily help arrange evening visitis to Isla Cañas.

Sports Fishing
The coastal area is becoming an increasingly popular sports fishing location as the sea becomes very deep close to shore. This allows the amateur fisherman to catch BIG fish without much trouble at all. Tuna, sail fish, wahoo and marlin are all out there for the taking.

Pedasí
Perhaps the most charming town in Panama, Pedasí is certainly worth a visit. With a number of good places to eat and its nearby beaches there is usually a good excuse to make the 30 minutes journey by car or bus.
