Handcrafted Cabanas

Check out our four private, beachfront, and VERY thoughtfully appointed cabanas at the all-inclusive, eco-friendly Camaroncito EcoResort & Beach

on Panama's Caribbean coast!


It is just over 3 hours of travel time from Panama City.

To ensure guests fully enjoy their vacation, our minimum stay is two nights.

Indulge your senses at Camaroncito. 

Nourish your soul sleeping in a handcrafted cabana freshened by ocean breezes and calmed by the sound of the surf. Pamper your body with a hot shower open to the rainforest after a therapeutic massage overlooking the Caribbean. Captivate your tastebuds with fresh local produce crafted into healthy yet sumptuous meals. Entice your vitality with a creative cocktail while you learn to dance salsa under the stars on a 600m private sand beach cove nestled in the rainforest.

Our beach resort is in the center of a 600-meter soft sand private beach cove with 16 acres of gently cared-for rainforest behind it.  Our four wooden cabanas are nestled amid the dappled shade of coconut and mangrove trees, each with a lovely open terrace view of the beach and ocean to the front, and the lush rainforest behind. 

La Ensenada, our included-in-the-price social area, restaurant, and bar, is right on the beach.  There is both covered and open space for morning yoga and evening salsa dancing! You will have free use of our beach volleyball, boogie boards, lounge chairs, bamboo beach mats and Turkish towels, water games, and more.

All-Inclusive Options

We are a small, family owned and operated business that strives to provide exceptional experiences and reasonable prices to enable normal people to have an amazing vacation. 


We have only four beachfront cabanas, each with a queen bed and private bath.  Our pricing is based on How Many Guests + How Many Days + Meal/Drink Plan + Transport Option + Special Activities.

Camaroncito is adult focused, welcoming guests 10 years and up.  

Come to Camaroncito to immerse yourself in nature, disconnect from the modern world, and reconnect with each other.


We welcome all guests seeking an eco-friendly vacation, including those from the LGBTQ community, people wanting complete solitude, and those seeking to socialize, exercise and have fun.


Our all-inclusive model ensures you are wined and dined and entertained (or relaxed) to your heart's content.  We offer an escape from traffic and crowds, a gift of witnessing wildlife nature in-person, without any cages, and an opportunity to revel in a night sky unaffected by man-made light.

The bulk of our food and drink is sourced and prepared locally, though the bar and spice-rack are international.  We bake our own bread and make our own fermented fruit juices and frozen treats.  

Camaroncito is the creation of Ernesto & Sarah, beach bums, nature enthusiasts, foodies, salsa dancers and avid travelers. Our permanent home is on the property, and we personally ensure the delight of our guests, together with our trained team of locals.

From the moment you book, we strive to ensure your satisfaction with a detailed welcome guide, including directions, what to bring/not bring, and seasonal norms. And we respond to all inquiries within hours, not days.


We even provide rubber boots for hiking the rainforest or horseback riding, rechargeable headlamps for night time use, and natural bug spray.  For guests staying 5 days or more, we even provide free laundry service. 

We want you to feel as if you are visiting close friends.  Please come and be part of the Camaroncito family!
