There is not a bad word to be said about Verana. We had a great time. The facilities are on in a million and the staff are just fantastic. It's like a little outdoor eco retreat where you sleep in fantastically comfortable yet outdoor surroundings.
The natural sounds on the water, animals and trees lull you to sleep and wake you up every morning.
The food is amazing, the bar is great with lots of amazing tequilas. The spa is just phenomenal as well.
We didn't do many activities while we were there and yet we never got bored and enjoyed the tranquility and serenity of Verana. It is 100% magical and has to be experienced to be understood. However it is also for a specific type of person, it is set in nature so expect to become a part of it.
Can't wait to go back. (stayed in the Bungalow in March 2010) want to go back with some friends and stay in the Palapa.
