Property Information

The Camp at Kalu Yala is an experimental hospitality program in partnership with the village of Kalu Yala and the Kalu Yala Research Institute. We are comfortable camping with full-service hotel amenities and staff, but we don't call it luxury camping or "glamping". Our eco-village is being developed using best practices in environmental engineering and what we like most about tropical living. Your stay at The Camp at Kalu Yala is a rare chance to visit a modern jungle frontier settlement set in a food forest and built on a former cow pastue. Our decisions are driven by the research of passionate students and some of the world's top design professionals for the hot, humid tropics. We are located in the Tres Brazos River Valley of San Martin, Panama, at the intersection of the springwater fed Rio Pacora and Rio Iguana, and adjacent to the Chagres National Park. The property is difficult to access due to the mud road over the mountain and through the river, but is only 40 miles driving (roughly 1.5 hours) from Panama City and 25 miles (roughly 1 hour) from Tocumen International Airport.
