Eco Venao is set within a 140 hectare (346 acre) reforestation project. With a choice of low impact accommodations to suit every guest’s needs, Eco Venao promises the luxury traveler, eco tourist or surfer a wonderful experience. Located where the rolling hills of the Azuero Peninsula meet the rolling waves of Playa Venao, it is nothing less than a surfer’s paradise.

Indulge yourself by staying in one of the luxurious guesthouses located inside the reforestation project, where the surrounding trees give you a feeling of absolute privacy without obstructing your view of the ocean, which are also perfect for families or small groups. Fully equipped with kitchens, modern bathroom and generous living areas, these guesthouses leave nothing to be desired. Or go all-the-way natural with one of the traditional stilted cabañas, made from local cane and comfortably fitted with fans, mosquito nettings, and double beds. The composting toilets and semi-outdoor showers help you stay nice and clean while keeping the environment the same. To keep the ecosystem undisturbed, there is a strict policy not to feed the wildlife, especially the monkeys, who live around.

During the day, make use of a variety of activities. Rent snorkeling equipment, a surfboard or a kayak, enjoy the beach volleyball court, the games room, the forest and the beach, refresh yourself under the little waterfall on the property or take a horseback ride. Alternatively, you can of course always find yourself a quite spot to contemplate nature, read a good book, or just daydream…And when the evening draws up meet fellow travelers in the communal kitchen where you can exchange cooking recipes, stories, and a sense of belonging.

Whatever you are looking for, community, peace, adventure or relaxation, be sure to find it here.
