had a wonderful stay in the dorm at EcoVenao, dorms are basic but you can also have a lux. cabin, loved this place, clean, close to a surfing beach and nature ...gonna be back as soon as I can, hopefully the wonderful Playa Venao is not developing too much in the next years.

Everything about Eco Venao was amazing. The owner is kind and fair, the staff was fabulous, and the food was excellent. We spent so much time relaxing, eating, surfing, and watching the monkeys swing through the trees. The hostel was very clean. We spent two nights in a small, private room with bathrooms and showers nearby. The rest of our... More

Eco venao is a great place to visit when you tour through Panama. With a car it is a long, but quite scenic route, however public transport-wise it is pretty difficult to access. The lodge is located close to the beach (only cross a small road) and posses multiple wooden cabins, ranging from luxurious to budget. A definite recommender is... More

We had a very nice time staying in the dorms at EcoVenao. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and there were no problems with bugs. EcoVenao is just a minute walk to the beach through land which they also own, and there are also some trails to walk on. The public-use kitchen could use some updating and cleaning,... More

Excellent to disconnect from everything & rest + is pet friendly! We stayed at La Casona & it's very pretty & cozy, equiped with everything you need for a pleasant stay. Lot of things to do from resting in a hammock to walk to a tiny waterfall in the property & of course visiting Venao beach & surrounds. The restaurant... More

Being at EcoVenao is like being at Home. Not home, but Home! We schedule for 6 nights and i thought that it would be too much... 6 days later we couldn't believe all those days had gone. We stayed at "la casita", wich was perfect for the two of us, and we had a very relaxed time. The sound of... More

We stayed in a house with three bedrooms, three baths a stand alone kitchen and dining room located across a covered outdoor patio area. Having traveled far and wide I have to say this was one of my most memorable experiences. The house would easily have accommodated three couples and hopefully on my next trip it will. What a great...
