This is Beautiful Playa Venao, Panamá...

Beautiful Playa Venao has been my passion for many years, 
Private home in Venao, near Pedasi, Panama – Best Places In The World To Retire – International Living
and this is the area I moved to a long time ago, in 1985. I was lucky to get to know Panama from the "inside out", being exposed to the folklore of the Los Santos Province and its music and festivities.  
 
Getting to know some deep traditions was the highlight of my move abroad, my kids growing up in a sane and safe environment with Spanish being their first language.  All in all a well-balanced upbringing for a child if you ask me.

Beautiful Playa Venao is surrounded by raw nature, the tropical dry forest (which Expats are now reforesting to bring back the wildlife that vanished due to the lack of habitat) with its animals, the ocean with its abundance of life, we always have a beautiful playground all around. Spending time with the locals is also always a favorite.

Summertime is here, (December til May) Playa Venao is seeing gorgeous surf, the northerly trade winds blow daily, no rain whatsoever...surfers, booggie-boarders, and 
body surfers abound.Surf at Venao beach, near Pedasi, Panama – Best Places In The World To Retire – International Living
 
The slowly cooling ocean is very welcome to refresh us from the hot hot sun, playing in the waves is just so much fun.

Temperatures drop sharply this time of year due to the oceans upwelling, which brings the water from the bottom up to the surface, including its fish, which therefore attracts many seabirds. 
 
What a magical place it is...
