Our History and Future
Camaroncito EcoResort & Beach is an exclusive, ecologically conscious, rustic resort located on 16 acres of limited-access rainforest on the Central Caribbean coast of Panama, locally called “Costa Abajo”. Travel time from Panama City is about four hours. Our 600 meter private and protected beach cove of soft sand is perfect for swimming and playing in the waves!
Camaronicito is the creation and heart work of Ernesto and Sarah, who are avid travelers, beach bums, foodies, and salsa dancers. It is not a hotel to register for one night; it is an escape from modern life, a gift of reconnection with nature, and an opportunity to be inspired by the ocean, the rainforest and the wildlife.
The local name for our beach cove is “little shrimp” due to its shape. The Camaroncito property was purchased in 2017, started hosting guests in 2018, and became a legal business in 2021 offering "glamping" getaways for small groups. The full resort will reopen in January 2023, with 4 beachfront cabanas and 2 rainforest tree houses with ocean views.
