How to get there

Driving directions from Panama City

Exit Panama City via the Bridge of Americas - Puente de las Amricas. Please be aware of the speed limits, you may encounter police cars with radar along the highway roads.

The highway is called Pan-American Highway. Continue on this highway for approximately three hours towards Divisa town.

Prior to arriving to Divisa, you will see billboards advertising the town of Pedasi. This is the direction you want to head, and this is also where you turn off from the Pan-American Highway.

The turnoff is on the right, leading you to a small overpass above the highway, and you are now on route to Chitre and then to Las Tablas.

Upon entering Las Tablas, you will continue straight down the main road, until you hit a two-way stop.

The towns square will be on your right, and a lime green building called Electronic Caf will be in front of you.

You will continue straight, with a slight veer to the left, until you approach a fork in the road.

There will be a Clinica Dental in front of you, and a small blue sign on your left, with an arrow directing you to turn left to Tonosi. Take this left.

You will then take your first right - a big yellow / red / black SUR sign will be in front / above of you.

You are now on the road to Valle Rico. This beautifully paved mountain road is approximately a 1.15-hour drive, and as you descend the mountain to the valley bottom, you will approach a fork in the road. Turn left.

Continue straight for another four minutes, and you will hit a dead end. Turn right.

Five minutes later, you will arrive to Tonosi.

Entering Tonosi, there is a gas station to your right; this is the last stop to refuel before Cambutal.

Straight ahead from the gas station and on your left, there is an ATM located at The Banco Nacional, this is the last place to get cash.

With the Banco Nacional on your left, and the towns square on your right, you will turn right and continue on that road. It will veer slightly to the left and you will continue that way.

You will see a big blue sign on your left with a few beach towns listed. Cambutal is on that sign.

It is a 20-minute drive from Tonosi to Cambutal. You will pass signs for Bucaro and Guanico as you drive.
