 Additional Information

this place picks up almost the same swells as Santa Catalina, so it is a very nice spot to go to if you get tired of the crowd at Santa Catalina.

Accomodation - I am planning a trip to Panama with the girlfriend and am interested in staying in or near playa venao. Where is there a good place to stay that has private rooms, A/C, and private bathrooms?

Thanks,

Alex

Venao - Was recently in Panama and went to Venao. The surf was sweet and the surf camp and Eco Lodge on the hill called "Eco Venao" was awesome and a lot of fun. $10 or so for a bunk bed and more for a double room. Also had great, very high-end accomodation. Monkeys in the trees, fires on the beach...Venao was great.

New Surf Camp - Two weeks ago I was in Playa Venao for some days. The waves were good, but sometimes - especially around noon - closeout. I stayed in a really nice hostel/surf camp up the hill called "Eco Venao". It was clean, laid back atmosphere and very friendly owners. Walk to the beach about 5 min, to the main spot about 10 min. So check it out next time.
