If you are looking to experience the natural beauty of the shores of the pacific coast in Panama, this is the place to go. Seriously.

Ride through sleepy towns into the rolling hills of the southern tip of the Peninsula of Azuero. Take a curvy road past cowboys and rice-fields, down to one of Panama's most stunning beaches facing the big blue pacific ocean  - Playa Venao!

Hostel Venao Cove is located at the tip of the bay overlooking all of Venao Beach. We take big pride in the property and like to think that it shows. We are a family-run- and owned venue, and we think you can feel it. With its lush vegetation and numberless singing birds this tropical paradise is waiting for you to come linger in one of our hammocks, letting time take a slower pace.

Venao Cove has rooms spread out on a generous 5 hectares of beachfront paradise, with plenty of options regarding accommodations. The main-cabin accommodates two private rooms that sleep up to three guests each, as well as two dormitories with eight beds each. High velocity-ceiling-fans, plenty of windows and high ceilings make for cool and comfortable rooms.

At the main-cabin you will find the social common-area and garden terrace, eqipped with lots of comfortable furniture, as well as a BBQ-shack with a hand-made pizza oven, where we have frequent nightly bon-fires under the stars. Here guests from all the accommodations, dorms, private rooms and private houses, come together to meet and mingle.

All of our kitchens, communal and private ones, are well equipped and always kept clean and tidy by our wonderful staff.

All of our beds  - in the private rooms as well as in the dorms - are custom built and sturdy and the mattresses of good quality.

We like to call Venao Cove "the quiet end of the beach", as people come here to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet, however, restaurants and bars are within walking-distance.

Venao Cove is more than a hostel: It is really like a tiny village that has slowly grown into what it looks like today- with several cabanas here and there, nothing to intrusive, with a small footprint. That's why we still get plenty of wildlife visiting us – wake up to the sounds of the howler monkeys, listen to the songs of countless singing-birds and go to sleep with the hypnostising sound of the ocean rolling onto shore right out front.
