Camaroncito is a SPECIAL Place
Camaroncito is a very special place.
There are many beautiful beaches in the world. There are many rainforest eco resorts. There are many places that are very private and remote, or that are all-inclusive, or that cater to adults, or that are near major international airports.
But Camaroncito combines all of those things in one place ... a supremely private, all-inclusive, adult focused eco resort nestled on a soft sand Caribbean beach cove in the middle of a rainforest, only three hours from Panama City, Panama.
Camaroncito is a place where you can see the shadows of coconut palms cast by a full moon on clean light sand just outside of your beachfront cabana.

Our Special Touches Matter
Camaroncito EcoResort & Beach is a nature lover's paradise, with only four hand crafted wooden cabanas on the Caribbean coast of Panama.
Our cabanas each have a large beachfront terrace and are fully equipped with a queen bed, quality linens and bath towels, an en-suite bathroom with a hot shower open to the rainforest, solar powered fan and lights, and huge screened windows to let in the ocean breezes and sounds of the surf in front and the rainforest behind.
A stocked mini-bar, coffee service, snacks and filtered water are included in the price. We even provide turkish beach towels, headlamps for night use, umbrellas, high rubber boots for hiking, natural bug spray, and a charging station for your devices. Daily housekeeping is provided, and linens are changed every three days. Guests staying 5 nights or more receive free laundry services.
We are the only development on a 600-meter soft sand beach cove with warm water perfect for swimming. Beach chairs, mats and turkish beach towels are provided for guests to use, included in the price. Work on your tan, read a book in the shade, or walk along the water's edge hunting for seashells. Or, indulge your inner child and build a sand castle!
Our 16-acres of carefully curated land provide an authentic and private rainforest experience, with machete cut hiking trails, river cascades to climb, and abundant tropical flora and fauna. Rare tree frogs and butterflies abound, and there are more species of tropical birds than we can count, including toucans, parrots, parakeets, eagles, harborfreights, pelicans and cranes.
Despite this incredible privacy, we are the closest Caribbean eco resort to Panama City. Drive your car 2 hours over the new Atlantic bridge, then along newly paved roads through lush countryside and along gorgeous coastline to our free secure parking. Or enjoy drinks and a guided tour while being chauffeured in our minibus from anywhere in Panama. Then thrill in a 45-minute open boat ride skirting the coast, the cost of which is included in your cabana rental price. Or, be greeted with champagne on the helicopter landing pad at Camaroncito in less than 30 minutes from Allbrook airport!
Our guests can enjoy daily morning yoga, lounging in a hammock, playing beach volleyball, boogie boarding the waves, playing board games in our social area, practicing balance on our tightrope, building a huge driftwood bonfire, or learning how to dance salsa under a starlit sky. Spa services, a river and hiking tour to an enormous waterfall, private yoga lessons, and horseback riding are available at an added cost.
La Ensenada is our restaurant and social area, with ample seating options and plenty of space for yoga practice, dancing, or just hanging out on the large beachfront terrace. The kitchen serves creative, healthy and delicious gourmet meals three times a day, and is always open for a snack. Meals are normally served family style to facilitate friendship and laughter, but guests may also choose to dine at a private table or in their cabana.
The bar is self-service and equipped with beer, red and white wine, a variety of liquors, glassware, ice and a blender. Guests may also request that a cocktail using local fruits and herbs be created for them. The bar boasts a powerful bluetooth sound system where guests can choose music from our huge library, or play their own music. Both soft and nightclub-style lighting options enhance evening activities, as does a microphone for singing along, and we have many board games. All food and drinks are included in the full service price.
La Paz spa offers therapeutic massage and body scrubs, rejuvenating hair packs and cleansing facials. The spa is open air with privacy curtains and sits to the far side of the property, right in front of the ocean. Spa services must be booked in advance at additional cost.
COUPLE AND SMALL GROUP PACKAGES
Cabanas are double occupancy and available for individual rental from 3 days to 3 months, inclusive of all services including private boat transport, meals and snacks, drinks of all kinds, and all activities. Special packages are available for weekend getaways and special holidays with fixed transport times. Custom packages for groups of 4 or more are available for as little as one night. Alternative options for long stay guests are also available, including modified services or exchange of work.
WHOLE RESORT RENTAL
The entire resort can be reserved either with full service or as a rental where the guests bring their own food and drink, and do their own cooking and cleanup. ONLY in the case of full resort rental, two huge tents each with a combination of queen and single mattresses with pillows, sheets and towels may accommodate up to 8 additional guests for a total of 16 total guests.
OUR OPEN ARMS
Camaroncito is an adult focused (>14) resort, however in the case of whole resort rental, children of all ages are welcome at a reduced cost. Camaroncito is all-inclusive both in our pricing model, and in our open arms to guests from the LGBTQ community. Well behaved pets are also welcome at a small cost.
Our all-inclusive model ensures that guests are wined and dined to their heart's content without ever needing to open a wallet or sign an account check. Our goal is that you feel as if you are at your own beach property, or that of a good friend. Guests may arrive with just a backpack with a few changes of lightweight clothing and beachwear, and we take care of the rest so that guests may focus on reconnecting with nature and with each other. Welcome to the Camaroncito family!
We are in a remote location and all transport options require guests to get in to and out of an open boat in shallow water. As such, our resort is not suitable for individuals with limited mobility or serious health issues.
We have a well stocked first aid kit on site and a helicopter landing pad on our property for emergencies, but the nearest hospital is in Colon. There is a national police outpost in Cocle del Norte, which is 3 km away.
We have Starlink Internet Service in the La Ensenada. It is FAST and stable for those who might want to hang out with us and work remotely, but the signal is not strong in all cabanas. There is no cell service in our area.
