One of the best week's ever! Went from zero surf experience to feeling more confident in the water in just 6 days. Not only is Venao stunning, but the people at Beach Break are just as beautiful. Incredible surroundings, awesome activities, + memories to last a lifetime.

Hey Sean! We have a restaurant located on site here with tons of affordable options ($4 breakfast, pizzas starting at $10, for example). There's also a community kitchen here at the hotel to cook your own meals. Besides that Playa Venao has a cool little food scene with several other options to choose from for eating out and there are some cool places to hang out and have drinks/ chill. Hope this helps.

Wondering if there is a place to snorkel near the Hotel?
Yes, there is a small bay with white sand beaches named Playita about 1km walk from our location. The water is calm and clear as it is protected from the swell. Ypu can see it on google maps. Can we help you make your reservation. Send us a email at bbplayavenao@gmail we can help plan your travel. -Nathan A.
