7 REASONS TO GET STOKED ABOUT SELINA HOSTELS PEDASI (NOW OPEN!)

Soon, Pedasi will be recognized as having two distinct eras: Before Selina, and after.

You heard right. Selina Hostels is coming to Panama’s most charming pueblito– where colorful, antiquated streets and authentic Panamanian culture blends with an international air of travel, innovation, and adventure.

If you’re not familiar with Pedasi, there couldn’t be a more perfect time for you to get acquainted. Just 20 minutes outside of Playa Venao, Pedasi and the surrounding landscape offer some epic opportunities for exploration and adventure.

Many only know Pedasi as the town on the way to Selina Playa Venao, where excellent surfing and young beach atmosphere has been attracting travelers for decades. As you’re about to learn, however, Pedasi has a lot more to offer travelers and adventure-seekers than a pretty pit stop.

Here are 7 good reasons to get stoked over Selina Pedasi.

1. There are unique and adventurous things to do in Pedasi

It used to be that only locals knew of all the incredible things to do in Pedasi. Now, with Selina, the area’s perfect beaches, epic waterfalls, jungle canopies, and white sand islands are just waiting for you to uncover them. Activities in Pedasi range from relaxing to scream-your-head-off exciting, and everything in between. Here, you’ll find places you never knew existed, and can’t wait to tell your friends about.

Take Isla Iguana, a stunning wildlife reserve just 20 minutes off the coast of Pedasi.

Those who visit Isla Iguana are amazed it’s not on the Caribbean, with it’s flawless white sand, crystal turquoise waters, and world-class coral reef.

As far as day tours go, you really can’t beat an afternoon at Isla Iguana. Whether you’re snorkeling with sea turtles, exploring the eclectic island, hand-feeding the island’s massive colony of iguanas, or clinking cans with friends on the beach, Isla Iguana will quickly become one of your favorite places to visit in Panama.

Even the most seasoned thrill-seekers marvel are impressed by Cañas Jungle Adventure Zipline, which boasts the highest and longest zipline in all of Panama.

There’s no feeling quite like soaring amongst the rainforest tree canopy, locking eyes with sloths and monkeys, and taking in the epic panoramic view of beach, mountains, and rainforest.

Other things to do in Pedasi include​ an awesome horseback riding tour through the jungle, filled with natural pools and (if you ask for it) high-speed gallops across expansive mountainsides, waterfall hikes, deep sea fishing, and– depending on the season, kite-surfing, whale-watching, and some of the best surfing on the Pacific.

Selina Pedasi puts you in the perfect location for exploring the area’s countless scenic vistas and heart-pumping adventures. We work closely with locals and surrounding businesses to help our guests interact with the landscape in an unforgettable and heart-pumping way.

2. Selina Pedasi is a work of art.

Like all Selina locations, Selina Pedasi is artfully constructed to be a place of style, comfort, and inspiration.

Handcrafted by local and international artists, Selina Pedasi evokes an eclectic, homey feel by blending the warm, timeless elements of mexican decor with a young, trend-driven design.

Nearly everything you see in Selina Pedasi is handcrafted by talented artisans from around the world, who up-cycle discarded, unwanted materials into functional and beautiful furniture and decor.

3. It’s the perfect complement to Selina Hostels Playa Venao.

Just 20 minutes apart and filled with their own distinctive look, feel, and range of activities– Selina Playa Venao and Selina Pedasi are the perfect combo for any traveler.

Split your visit between the beachfront paradise of Selina Playa Venao and the adventure-packed landscape of Pedasi. You’ll enjoy special offers, easy transport between locations, and the best of both worlds when you visit both Selina Playa Venao and Pedasi.

4. Local and international artists, designers, and makers collaborated on Selina Pedasi.

The brains behind the Selina Pedasi design and architecture team include some seriously talented creators. Oz Zechovey (seen left), creative director of Selina, recruited local and international artists from just about every corner of the planet to contribute their creativity…even former gang members, who Oz has personally trained into carpenters, builders, and welders.

Also featured in Selina Pedasi is our first-ever collaboration with Kalu Yala– an organization building the world’s most sustainable modern town in the Panama rainforest.

Such talent and diversity amongst the design team only enhances the final product of Selina Pedasi, and the greater overall impact of Selina.

5. Tacos.

What’s a Mexican-inspired hostel without a mexican-fusion bar and restaurant?

Blasphemy, that’s what.

Selina Pedasi features La Piñata– a full Mexican restaurant and bar which offers (amongst other things) all the tacos your traveler heart could want.

La Piñata is the place to go in Pedasi for a fun, playful atmosphere, great food, cutting-edge music, beautiful people, and strong drinks (tequila, anyone?)

6. It’s got all the Selina amenities you know and love.

Like all Selina locations, Selina Pedasi offers all the amenities and facilities travelers care about.

An outdoor pool and lounge area, “chill out” garden zone, pool table, ping pong table, and bike rentals. And, of course, strong free WIFI throughout the property.

Selina Pedasi also works closely with local tour groups like Pedasi Tours to help our guests experience all that the epic surrounding landscape has to offer. Plus, free transportation between Selina Pedasi and Selina Playa Venao for all Selina guests, so you can spend less time in transit and more time in the midst of a wild adventure.

7. It’s the perfect place to relax and reenergize between adventures.

With so many epic adventures waiting for you in Pedasi, Selina Pedasi is the perfect place to recharge, relax, inspire your next great adventure.

Selina Pedasi is the type of place that energizes you the moment you walk through the door. Whether you’re soaking up the sun by our outdoor pool, making new friends in our garden lounge area, binging on artisan tacos, swapping travel tales at the bar, or resting up between adventures, you’ll be doing it in color, comfort, and style.
