Transportation

Getting to Camaroncito is part of the fun!

We are in a remote location even though we are only a bit more than three hours total travel time from Panama City by car then boat (or 30 minutes by helicopter).

Camaroncito is on Panama's Central Caribbean Coast, locally called "Costa Abajo", which is 30 km West of Miguel de la Borda, and 3 km East of Cocle del Norte.

FIVE ways to get here - book as an ADD-ON OPTION when making your reservation.

A picturesque drive from Panama City will bring you to our parking area in Miguel de la Borda, then the last 30 km is by boat.  Parking is free for your car/truck. 

All prices are per person based on a minimum of two people.  All guests in a group must select the same transport options. We will do our best to help solo travelers arrange their travel to be together with another single or a group.  Repeat customers will notice a significant increase in our transport prices ... we are sorry, but increased gas and labor costs are the cause.

  1. For those with their own boat or jet skis, there is a one time parking fee of $20 to accommodate the extra space we will arrange for you.  We have a river entrance to the ocean for secure anchorage for smaller craft.  A larger boat can anchor offshore 30-40m and come ashore using their dingy.
  2. Our boat transport is $100 round trip per person. 
  3. Our chauffeured car from Panama City + our boat is $200 round trip per person. 
  4. SkyRide helicopter from Allbrook airport to our helicopter landing pad is $1600 roundtrip. 
  5. One way helicopter + one way car/boat is $1000.

A few more details ... 

From Panama City, drive North one hour to cross the new Atlantic Bridge over the Panama Canal. Veer West/left and drive another 1.5 hours to Miguel de la Borda. Most of the road is newly paved, and it is a lovely drive through lush rainforest, open cattle pasture and along scenic ocean views. There are a variety of small local restaurants along the way we can recommend.  A detailed map will be sent to you.

You will park in the Camaroncito secure parking area, then enjoy an exhilarating 1 hour ride West along the coastline in our 30 foot open boat equipped with comfortable benches, large plastic boxes to keep your luggage dry, and quality life preservers. Many guests tells us the boat ride is one of the special memories from their visit to us.

The helicopter ride is breathtakingly spectacular!!! It is a once in a lifetime experience to see both the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, the Panama Canal, Panama City, and gorgeous landscapes in less than 30 minutes!!!  SkyRide Panama is our helicopter transport partner:  https://skyride.city/en
