Arrival by bus

There is a bus service to Las Tablas / Tonosi from Panama City with the main bus terminal at Albrook. After the comfortable touring bus from Panama City to Las Tablas, you can take a cab to the other local bus terminals to get a ride to Tonosi. Not all buses to Las Tablas / Tonosi are touring buses. Some are coaster buses that have limited storage space for luggage and surf boards, so Surfcamp Guanico recommends traveling these 4 hours from Panama with the touring buses. The coaster from Las Tablas to Tonosi will get you there in 50 minutes. 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.
