Caribbean beach cove at Camaroncito
  • What makes Camaroncito EcoResort special?
    Based on guest feedback, the three most unique aspects of a vacation at Camaroncito are: 1) IMMERSION IN NATURE - Our cabanas are handcrafted with local wood and are cooled with silent solar power, with the beach to the front, and rainforest behind. Our restaurant, bar, and spa are all open to the beach and rainforest as well. 2) PRIVACY - We host no more than 12 guests at a time unless the entire resort is rented by one group, in which case we set up tents to support up to 24 people, yet our huge beach cove and rainforest are totally private, and are dedicated to just our resort. 3) CARING SERVICE - We strive for you to feel as if you are visiting a close friend who is generous with their space, incredible food and drinks, and many interesting things to do. * Check out our customer reviews at:
  • What is the beach like ... is it good for swimming?
    Our beach cove is huge (600 meters long), has soft light sand, and is very private. We are the only development for many miles in either direction. The water is warm all year and is a light green color. It is lovely for swimming, walking in the water, or just floating in sheer bliss. You can walk out on the sandy bottom for 10 to 30 meters before it drops off. We usually have low surf that is perfect for playing in the waves with a boogie board, though sometimes it is as smooth as glass.
  • What do I need to bring with me?
    You can arrive to Camaroncito Eco Resort and Beach with just a small bag with light clothing and personal items. We provide all linens, bath and beach towels, full size shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and ample food and drink selections. We also have a wide variety of sizes of tall rubber boots for guests to use hiking in the rainforest and horseback riding. Weather in Panama is temperate (75 to 85 Fahrenheit / 24 to 29 Celcius) and humid all year. In the first and third quarters of the year, it is sunny 2/3 of the time. In the second and fourth quarters of the year it is sunny 1/3 of the time. We are in the rainforest, but it seldom rains all day. We usually have at least a few hours of sun every day. Each cabana has a drying line, and we provide free machine laundering of clothes every third day when sheets and towels are changed. We recommend you focus on comfortable, lightweight quick dry fabrics: Two sets of casual shorts and t-shirts for the day. Two sets of lightweight long-sleeved t-shirts and lounge pants for the evenings (to keep both the evening chill and insects at bay). A set of casual party/dancing clothes if that is part of the experience you want to have here!!! Skip special shoes, we mostly go barefoot. Swimsuit, sunglasses, wide-brimmed hat and flip-flops for the beach. One set of heavier pants (not jeans), long-sleeved shirt, and long socks (to wear inside the knee-high black rubber boots we provide) for jungle hikes or horseback riding. Durable, waterproof sandals that stay on your feet for getting in and out of the boat and for walking on the volcanic rocks and climbing river cascades. If you will take the river tour and waterfall hike, bring snug fitting shorts, tank top, and socks for climbing and swimming in the waterfalls. Bring your own sunscreen, personal toiletries and medications. We provide spray bottles of natural oil anti-insect spray that works well against our local sand flies and gnats that come out at dawn and dusk (as is normal on all beaches), but feel free to bring your own. We seldom see mosquitos or wasps around the resort, but they do live in the jungle all around us. Charging cables and waterproof carriers (quart sized slide zipper baggies work great) for your electronics.

  • What does "nightly entertainment" mean?
    We have a good music system and microphone for when guests feel like singing karaoke, and Ernesto is always happy to give salsa dancing lessons! Depending on our guests, evenings might include many drinks and loud music and dancing, or a mellower vibe with board games or dominos ... or perhaps a huge bonfire on the beach. We have a few guitars for any guests who know how to play. Or, guests can just lay out under the stars and marvel at what the sky looks like without light pollution.
  • Can I bring my pet to Camaroncito?
    Yes, we welcome well behaved furry family members. We have two very friendly dogs, two cats, and three horses in our own family.
