hike to a playa venao waterfall
Just up the road from (the future) Vista Cañas is Eco Venao, a reforestation “resort” that has multi-handedly planted 25,000 trees on 30+ hectares of land in the last 13 years. We love eating at their onsite restaurant called Panga, hanging out at their surf dojo, galloping down the beach on one of their horses, sipping on beer at their on-the-sand bar, or hiking to their waterfall and beyond.
This Playa Venao waterfall varies in size depending on the time of year, but it’s always a pleasant place to sit and relax for a bit. But, don’t stop here! Keep following the trail all the way up to the top where you will find one of the world’s best picnic spots.
On the way to the top of the mountain, you’re likely to pass by a variety of wildlife, including howler monkeys. Once you reach the top, you’ll find a picnic bench with one of the best views of Playa Venao.

After entering the main driveway, park in an open spot near Panga Restaurant and look for the sign for the “Cascada Trail” (just to the left of the restaurant). The trailhead is directly behind the restaurant and is easy to follow to the top.
