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, but the restaurant serves good food. We were there on a Friday night, and we didn´t know there would be a DJ. We thought that a place that´s basically in the jungle wouldn´t be a place that would blast really loud music until 4:00 am. But they did. The music was actually quite nice, but it was hard to sleep because it was soooo loud. If you want to sleep, keep it to a weeknight.

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 "El Panama" was just great! the attention, the food, everything. Definitively a place to return.

Room Tip: renting the guesthouses is recommended if you are looking for privacy or going in group.

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 birds was amazing.
We used the guest kitchen, wich was ok, the laundery service, wich was superb, the horse backride, great, and the restaurant-bar... well, the restaurant would deserv an individual post... great food, nice and eficient guys serving and very beautiful.
I dont't think that fotos can show you how cool and amazing EcoVenao is...

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 place for an adult family to get together for a fun weekend. The property affords total privacy and if you prefer you won't have to see another person for your entire stay. Not being a surfer I can't wax eloquently about the surfing properties of the beach but the people we encountered appeared to be enjoying it. We just enjoyed the beach by playing in the waves and relaxing on some supplied beach chairs.

But the best part of our stay was enjoying the excellent food offered in the restaurant located in the central area of the property. I certainly did not anticipate the quality of the food nor the first class service we received. As an example lunch one day consisted of a home made chicken soup, salad, rice and beans and a very delicious cut of beef steak. How they can offer this for $5.00 is beyond me. The food alone is worth the long ride to get there.

There were a few bugs to deal with but for a Floridian like me it was really nothing we couldn't handle. After all you are in a jungle on the ocean. The howling monkeys and red land crabs simply completed the atmosphere. Anyone looking for a unique experience is certainly encouraged to give this place a try, I promise you will return.
