El Ranchito Surfcamp is located a hidden place surrounded by palm trees and sounds of jungle. It is a very quite and relaxing place, the perfect spot to get away from the busy tourism and lifestyle.

We have 4 private rooms available, 3 with a shared bathroom and one has its own ensuite bathroom. Addition to that we have 2 bell tents available. Each of them is 12sqm big and furnished with an actual double bed inside.

All those cabanas and tents are spread in our tropical garden. In the middle of the garden there is a typical Panamanian Rancho. Inside there is a full to equipped guest kitchen, where all the guests can use for free. At the same place the guest can chill there in our hammock and relax.

Surf lessons, guiding & equipment is available on site.

We offer additional breakfast for $6 and dinner for $10

Location

Only within 4 min drive you can reach the nearest beach called Playa Guanico. It is an untouched long stretch beach that offers you nice beach break waves every day. This beach is famous for its empty line to up and easy going waves. Not like other spots in Panama, Guanico is very quite and remote. At beach there is only one panama restaurant & bar, where you can drink and eat at local prices.

For those who like to cook, you can find a little shop that is close to the surfcamp. You reach there 5 min by foot or 2 min by bike.
