Playa Venao is quickly becoming one of the hottest surfing destinations in Panama. One look at the waves – which break long and smooth over a beach – and it’s no surprise why. The surf here is appropriate for both beginning and advanced surfers, but non-surfers will enjoy the area as well. The beach is wide and without huge crowds. Horseback rides can be made along the coast or in the nearby mountains, and deep-sea fishing can be done in the Pacific Ocean.
The Playa Venao Hotel Resort is modern and equipped with a range of amenities that make it easy to relax. The infinity swimming pool is massive and looks out over the coastline. Sun chairs spot the sides of the pool and are set on a deck overlooking the ocean. During the evening or after surfing, guests can warm up in the hotel’s Jacuzzi.
There is an open-air restaurant that uses quality ingredients and serves a variety of healthy food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be had here, and there is a bar where you can order beer, wine and liquor. The hotel has a gym stocked with weights, treadmills and stationary bikes, as well as a spa where you can unwind with a massage.
The hotel’s accommodations are spread across the property. There are individual, thatch-roof suites, as well as rooms that have easy access to the swimming pool. All rooms have a casual and elegant atmosphere—some have dark wooden flooring, while others have porcelain tiles. The beds are comfortable and set with fine linens and luxury mattresses. All rooms include a private bathroom, hot water shower, air conditioning, cable TV, and wireless Internet.
