It has 11 rooms; which includes 2 double bed rooms, 4 dorms for up to 4 pax each, 4 dorms for up to 10 pax each, 1 dorm for up to 5 pax

or you can arrange your own stuff at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort Hotel nearby which charges ~$135 USD per night http://www.gamboaresort.com/default-en.html . We are not associated with them and cannot offer any support for these options.

*Camping Note: It is the Wet Season. Most field biologists out here don’t camp then. It will rain in a burst everyday, and hard! You need a decent tent/camping hammock.  Our camping spots are also highly limited.

**IMPORTANT: IF YOU ARE NOT A LOCAL, DO NOT JUST PLAN TO SHOW UP TO GAMBOA and expect to find your own housing! It’s an extremely busy time of the year, and there is already a huge housing crunch. Unless you have definite, concrete arrangements, you will need to stay with us during dinacon.

*** It is highly recommended to join us for the meals, as dinacon is about bringing people together, and making stuff. We have expert chefs making food for you all day, which frees you to spend time connecting with each other, exploring the jungle, and working on your projects!
