Make sure to visit Rest. El Panamá in the heart of Eco Venao.
Eat in our beautiful restaurant or have your meal delivered to the comfort of your own dining room. Alternatively, both of Eco Venao’s guesthouses and the Eco Lodge have well-equipped kitchens, and we invite our guests to make the most of them.
What you need to know
Please take into account that the best food shopping can be done in Panama City. In the vicinity of Eco Venao the closest supermarkets are in Pedasí and Tonosí, both with a limited selection of products. The latter may have more variety of fruit and vegetables, but the road to get there is in a bad state. Cañas (a few kilometers on the road towards Tonosí) has a very small shop for emergency supplies, and great ‘patio’ eggs. Las Tablas (1 hour away) has decent super markets, and Chitré (1 1/2 hours away) has a number of big super markets. It can to be quite difficult to get a good selection of vegetables outside Panama City, but El Rey in Chitré is pretty well stocked.
The closest restaurants to Eco Venao are El Sitio and Restaurante Playa Venao, right on the beach.
In Pedasí, which is a 3o minute drive from Eco Venao, there are a number of restaurants serving traditional Panamanian food – as well as a good Pizzeria, a not so good Chinese restaurant and a number of well regarded hotel restaurants. New restaurants are constantly opening up. Don’t miss Pasta y Vino for authentic home cooked Italian food in a family setting.
