How did you like the accommodation?

     

The accommodation at Playa Venao was great, especially being shared dorms. The surf camp was fantastic, I plan to return with my kids sometime in the future, since I noticed kids enjoyed it as much as the adults. The entire experience is family oriented.

The town is under development, so it was still a quaint experience to see the surf town in its authentic & natural beauty. The town had a restaurant near Beachbreak, called "La Bicicleta". $5 plato del dia was a good option for me when hunger set in. I would rent a car next time, people I spoke to mentioned it was easy, gas was inexpensive, and you have more freedom to check other beach spots along the Santos province.


How were the surf lessons?

     

The surf lessons were fantastic; professional approach to describing the methodology behind the basics of surfing; and the practice of attempting to surf was well-done, in the sense the instructors helped push me onto the wave to initiate the steps to take to ride it. Well done!

Playa Veano is a large, cresent to shape beach break offering a wide variety of waves ranging from beginner to intermediate/ advanced. The sand bottom allows beginners to practice safely without worrying about rocks or reef. The wide open layout allows the surfers to spread out and dissolve the crowds.
