Taking week off at playa venao
...and playa venao seems just like the perfect place to do that! :) It's not like all the other beaches we saw so far, with white sands and turqoise water, it's different - but it has its charme. The beach is almost black, like a volcano, and the water is greenish. It may not sound like the most beautiful beach, but it has something fascinating and I love it here!
We are staying at Selina hostel, which is actually great because it's directly by the beach. A friend of Steffi recommended it to me, so we just booked us a bed for 1 week to come here and relax, and it was the best choice. To get here, we had kind of a bumpy ride. Had to change buses 2 times and paid way more than we should have (I love taxi drivers) but now we are finally here!
Selina hostel is great, the feeling is so chill and a bit hipster. Everyday they offer different workshops, like yesterday for example we made our own bracelets, or you can do Yoga every evening, which is really cool as well because it's directly by the beach, so you have an Ocean view while doing Yoga... NICE?!?! Other than that, we will just chill I guess, aaaand... I AM LEARNING TO SURF! Yes, I signed up for a 3 day class, and so far after my first day, I'm having a lot of fun :) I was already even standing on the board catching some wves on my first day - didn't expect that at all! I'm hoping to find someone to take some cool pictures ;)
Not only can you chill by the beach here, there's also a lot of really cool nature to discover!
The day before, we hiked a little to some waterfall nearby, which was really awesome. The hike was about 30 minutes through the djungle and then we finally arrived! We jumped into the waterfall, there was no other people except us, such a cool experience :)
So all in all, I love this place and I am glad we're staying here for a whole week!
