Playa Venao Surf is a regional classic. This place was discovered in the 60´s and since then it has attracted mayor surfers from around the world, like Tom Curren, Matt Archbold, Sunny Garcia and others. The most recent exposure has been from International Contests held by Billabong, Reef, the ALAS (Latinamerican Surf Association) and local Panamanian Surf Circuit which has brought all kinds of surf pros from around the world and international media.
The peak season for surfing, with steady off-shore winds and consistent swells, lasts from around December to May, although the bigger swells will come around march. From that time onwards you can expect more consistent swells with variable winds. The winds will variate between South and North throughout the day with different intensities. In most cases, the glassy mornings will dominate and after 10:00 -11:00 am you can expect some onshore winds. In the late afternoon it mostly will calm down again to glassy. After rains it’s most likely to get really glassy.
During summer, when the swells
keep coming and the water is glistening with sunshine, Playa Venao Surf, known for it’s magnificent waves, often gets busy.
People wanting to learn might choose to avoid the hustle-and-bustle at the middle of the beach where the main

Between the hills of Venao, there is a large reserve of streams and rivers.
Choose and go to cool off in one of the many local pools!
In fact, Venao Cove has its own stream, which in the rainy season is a beautiful place to bathe.
If you continue your way to the hills for about half an hour, you will reach a waterfall and you will probably spend some time with some howler monkeys.

Reaching far into the large fish reservoir of the pacific ocean, the Azuero Peninsula is an attractive site for some great deep-see-fishing!.
This section of the Peninsula of Azuero has been named ¨the tuna coast¨ for its abundance of yellow fin tuna and other assorted types of game fish such as Dorado, Red Snapper, Wahoo and others.
The fishing location is close to the maritime corridor where the continental shelf drop is at only a few miles offshore from Venao Cove beachfront accommodations.
Los Frailes Rocks are two large rock islands that can be seen from the accommodations.
There is a crack at the bottom of the ocean that connects these rocks to the maritime corridor meaning large fish enter the area to eat.
Furthermore, there are areas such as Isla Cañas river and Oria river where world records for Snook fishing has been broken. The area is a true fishermen paradise.
Only fifteen minutes by car on a hill with stunning views is the natural reservoir of Isla Canas.
The island is one of the largest breeding sites in the world for sea turtles and tours to observe turtles can be organized.
The peak nesting season is from July to December, the peak season to incubate from August to December.
Isla Cañas has an extensive sandy beach on its south coast. The island is located in the Tonosi district, with 14 km of coastline and 1,200 hectares of live mangroves.
It has a small community of locals, a school, electric power, national police and some mini stores.
The economy of the town of Cañas is based on commercial fishing, clam harvesting and agriculture such as watermelon, rice and beans.
Named for the large numbers of iguanas that are seen on this island. Isla Iguana offers the perfect setting for a picnic day.
You will find yourself surrounded by exotic tropical views, groups of birds, hermit crabs, red crabs, fine sand and yes, many iguanas.
