Surfcamp Guanico is located directly at the beach with a breath-taking view on the Pacific Ocean, the green hills of the natural turtle park and the great surf break of Guanico Beach. Surfcamp Guanico provides a wide range of accommodation for families, individuals and backpackers. We have just opened the surfcamp, offering accomodation at different price levels. The bar and lounge create a wonderful mix of chill out atmosphere surrounded by the exotic paradise of Guanico Beach.

Guanico Beach is located in the centre of the 'Golding Surfing Triangle' of the Province of Los Santos in Panama. You may reach the breaks of Cambutal by car within 25 minutes and Playa Venao within 40 minutes.

Guanico Beach Break: Directly in front of the hostel you find the great beach break of Playa Guanico. The break works with 90 % consistency year round. Playa Guanico picks up swells from all directions and starts working at a swell-size of 1.5 feet.

Currently, there is a good bus service to Tonosi from Panama City, the main bus terminal at Albrook. It is only a few times a day, but saves one from having to change buses in Las Tablas. The bigger more comfortable touring bus from Panama City to Las Tablas is $8 but you have then to take a cab to the other, local bus terminal to get the bus to Tonosi. Not all buses to Las Tablas are touring buses, some are coaster buses and have limited storage space for luggage and surf boards. The buses to Tonosi from Las Tablas are also coaster buses.
It costs $11 each way Panama City to Tonosi.
Once in Tonosi, you can take the bus to Guanico Abajo which runs a few times a day and costs $2 per person, each way. Or take a cab from Tonosi to Guanico for about $6.

Check also about rent-a-cars or domestic flights to Chitre or Pedasi.

Permanent sun and waves, clean and tropical waters together with warm and friendly people of Los Santos create the chilling atmosphere comparable with the summer of California of the late 70ies. All surf spots located in the province of Los Santos have a similar swell exposure like Costa Rica and Nicaragua. Unlike other locations, Los Santos still provides empty line ups and secret surf spots. Hence we are excited to be the first surfcamp in Panama, located directly at the beach.
