Nice place to stay with friends, for a romantic getaway in the jungle or good place to meet people if you travel alone. We stayed in the cabana for 3 nights and we really enjoyed our stay. The cabanas are quite small (bedroom and patio) but are comfortable. Bring a small padlock if you can to secure any valuables. You... More

I stayed 2 weeks in Eco Venao and loved the place, ecofriendly, in the middle of the jungle, near the beach, relaxing, with monkeys in the morning! But what made my stay even more enjoyable was meeting Guillaume, responsible of the permaculture there. He organised some walks and activities to discover more of the place and of the nature. I...

We stayed in Cabana 2 with the hope of seeing monkeys. We heard howler monkeys at dawn and were able to see them by the bus stop at the entrance to Eco Venao. It made our trip! The Cabanas are cramped - the comfortable double bed with mosquito netting takes up almost all the space in the room - but... More

I booked 2 nights in a single room in the dorms with shared bathrooms. The room is quite small. The dorms and the single rooms are built like a log hut. This means there's some small space between the wall and the ceiling. There are mosquitoscreens, but no windows. It's situated in some very lush green nature, at least during... More

After a few interesting, but hectic days in Panama City and two days in Pedasi (meh), I spent a week at Eco Venao. Everything about the place was a welcome relief. I rented a comfortable, air-conditioned Cassita at the top of a hill surrounded by beautiful vegetation, even in the dry season. The area was populated by just enough (and... More

Eco Venao is very relaxed, clean, friendly staff. I stayed in the dorm room and it was comfortable with a lot of space between beds. I was traveling solo and would go back with a friend or boyfriend to enjoy it with. Hammocks for chilling, enjoyable restaurant, smoothies at the beach surf dojo.

We stayed in Pedasi and went for a day trip to surfers' spot Venao. We ended up at Eco Venao which also has a surf spot at the beach. Rented a surfboard for a nice price and had a great time there.
