There is a good bus service to Las Tablas/Tonosi from Panama City, the main bus terminal at Albrook. After the comfortable touring bus from Panama City to Las Tablas (9.50 usd) you will have to take a cab to the other, local bus terminal to get a ride to Tonosi. Not all buses to Las Tablas/Tonosi are touring buses, some are coaster buses and have limited storage space for luggage and surf boards. We recogment to travel these 4 hours from Panama with the touring buses. The coaster from Las Tablas to Tonosi (3.50 usd) will get you there in approx. 50 minutes. Taxis from Las Tablas direct to Guanico Beach (approx 40 to 50 usd) are available.

Once in Tonosi, you can take the bus to Guanico Abajo (Guanico Beach) which runs a few times a day and costs 2 usd per person, each way or take a cab from Tonosi to the beach for about 10 usd.

The Place

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.

The camp provides a wide range of accommodations for individuals, backpackers and groups at different price levels. The bar and lounge create a wonderful mix of chill out atmosphere surrounded by the exotic paradise of Guanico Beach.

We engaged all our efforts to create the ideal location for all travellers. 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, the province of Los Santos still provides some empty line ups and secret surf spots.

The kitchen is operated by international hotel trainees or volunteers who are pleased to provide delicious:
- breakfast: 07.30-09.00 (8 usd)
- dinner: 18.00-20.00 (approx. 10 to 14 usd)
on our ocean view terrace. Enjoy cool drinks at our bar with friends and guests. The view on the ocean and the fresh sea breeze will make your day.
