We, Ernesto and Sarah, are living our dream. We are avid travelers, beach bums, foodies, and salsa dancers. Sarah loves to garden, cook and entertain, and had prior lives as a business executive and teacher. Ernesto can fix or make anything, and is always the life of the party. Ernesto grew up in Panama Viejo (Old Panama), then studied architectural drafting in Cuba!
Between us we have four adult children, eight siblings, and many dear friends around the world, all of whom visit regularly. We love to share our escape from modern life. We also care for our community, not only by treating the environment and our workers with care and respect, but also by contributing to economic development in our area.
The property was purchased in 2017, started hosting guests in 2018, and became a legal business in 2021 offering "glamping" for small groups. The new resort opens in January 2023. Most of the rainforest has been left untouched except for winding hiking trails. We selectively cleared only for buildings and food production.
We enjoy feeling at one with nature, so our buildings and most furniture are rustic, hand crafted from local wood. There are lots of screened windows and ceiling fans for constant comfort. We hope you will find the absence of plastic and glitz refreshing.
Still, we enjoy modern conveniences, so even our satellite broadband and awesome karaoke systems are solar powered. We want you to feel at home, only better, because we do all the work! Unless, of course, you ask to help in the kitchen to learn how to make local cuisine, or you want to gather fresh eggs for breakfast, or learn how to open a coconut with a machete.
So, come be mesmerized by the sounds of the rainforest and the ocean surf at the same time! Be enchanted by the crystal clear stars unaffected by light pollution. Be entranced by the shadows cast by a full moon through the coconut palm trees. Come be a part of our Camaroncito Family!!!
