Ziplining in Playa Venao

Ready to get your adrenaline flowing? Or maybe you’re a sucker for mesmerizing natural scenery. In either case, your jaw will drop while soaring through the sky-high zipline with our friends at Canas Jungle Adventure.


Set in an amazing landscape not far from Playa Venao, the course features 8 cables spanning over 3 km, 2 rappels, suspension bridge, and even a tarzan swing (the tartan swing in particular is not for the faint of heart.)


You’ll also be immersed in an unbelievable backdrop of beauty, with ocean, rainforest, and waterfall views that you have to see to believe (really.)

Horseback Riding in Playa Venao


Even if you think you know Playa Venao, exploring by horseback affords a whole new level of experience. Besides the fact that practically everyone has fantasized about horseback riding on the beach (admit it), horseback enables you to explore the little nooks and crannies that you’d probably pass over on foot. The horses are healthy, well-trained, and beautiful– you can opt to go out and explore on your own or hire an expert local guide for a few extra bucks.

Tour Isla Iguana


If you daydream of islands so beautiful they belong on a postcard, make sure Isla Iguana makes it onto your itinerary. Just a short boat ride away from the shores of Pedasi, the island’s unspoiled beaches, bright-white sand, and glistening turquoise waters come together to create an actual paradise.


Besides its dramatic, Caribbean-esque beauty, Isla Iguana is also a bonafide wildlife reserve. Between its heavenly beaches and lush rainforest, the island is teeming with fascinating wildlife– not to mention the world class coral reefs that offer some of the best snorkeling in all the region.
