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...

Eco Venao is lovely place to stay,,,5 minute walk from the Playa Venado which has some really nice waves for beginners and more advanced surfers alike. The staff is really helpful and the accommodation is excellent.. I highly recommend it and would stay here again

My girlfriend and I stayed a week in Ecovenao, which unfortunately went by so fast. A beatiful place for surfing, enjoying nature, having great food and just forgetting the time! We loved it and would recommend to stay there at least a week!

Quiet beach, great surf, good short hikes, tons of wildlife, stellar food, great service, and a lovely and clean hotel/hostel environment...we can not recommend anywhere from our two week trip to Panama more highly!

The common kitchen is a bit small for the number of guests at the hotel but there is a good restaurant on site as an alternative. It has its own private... More

Although not in the best surf season, we could surf every single day and had two perfect hollow waves. Better for right waves than left. Nice atmosphere at the pic, quite relaxed locals. Lot... More

Four days only and I may say that was an incredible experience in our life. Monkeys, geckos, surf boards and waves, and after a long and exciting day rum with cola at the porch while sitting in the rocking chair or hammock. Great atmosphere and amazing people, mostly backpackers, but very friendly. In the restaurant, the best fish we've ever... More
