This place is a great spot. It is the only calm beach in Playa venao in which you can swim so if you got little children or just wanna relax at the beach and not play in the waves, this is the spot to be. After a dirt road (when it rains it may be hard to reach with a... More

We paid US 5 per person, its ok the price because we had place for seat, everything was clean and we had access to showers and... More

We went to this beach just for one day. We paid 5 dollar entry each and had the beautiful beach just for ourselfs. There are many animals around which is lovely. Only the hammocks could be replaced for newer ones :)

We visited Pedasi this weekend and was looking for a calm beach. Being in the pacific coast we had little expectations. After a search online we discovered Playita Venao. It's infront of the La Playita Resort. There is another access lower down the road but we didn't use. Seems off the beaten track. We paid $5 per adult to enter.... More

We enjoyed a day visit here. You pay $5 per adult, $2 per child to use their beach. The beach is beautiful and safe for swimming. It is sheltered from the waves that make for good surfing at other nearby beaches. There are two palm-covered shelters with hammocks and picnic tables. We were able to have one to ourselves. On...

This place is one of kind, a piece of art. Great beach, food was good and reasonably priced. Lester the owner is great! Get an oceanview room if possible, #6 is amazing! The best part are the animals. Many many monkeys. Also deer, emu (I think. looks like a small osterich), many more. Highly recommended place!

This is not your usual resort. It has been a creation of love; for nature, wildlife and architecture. It’s historically Panamanian with a modern twist. I highly recommend you give it a try with no preconceived notions. Accept it for its unique characteristics. There is no pool, but you are on the ocean. They serve meals, not high end, but... More

I visited this place in carnivals which means it was very full. The beach was very beautiful and my family really enjoyed the animals over there. It would be better if they would clean up better the bathrooms. I think if I visit in another season when its less full it would be cleaner. I find the entrance kind of... More

We stopped by for lunch and a beach stroll. The$5.00 entry fee was voided because we were going to have a late lunch. We had fresh fish and a shrimp plate. The fresh right off the boat fish was cooked to perfection. The shrimp were large, spiced perfectly. The bottle of wine chosen for us was very good. As you... More
