Cacique indígena de Costa Rica, posiblemente de extracción huetar, que habitaba en 1544 en la cuenca del río Suerre, hoy Reventazón, en la vertiente caribeña. Junto con otro cacique de la región, llamado Cocorí, se reunió con Diego Gutiérrez y Toledo, Gobernador de Nuevo Cartago y Costa Rica, quien los recibió amablemente. Sin embargo, el codicioso Gobernador, posiblemente inspirado en el precedente de Atahualpa y Francisco Pizarro, apresó a ambos y para devolver su libertad a Camaquiri le exigió que sus súbditos llenasen de oro un cesto de voluminosas proporciones. Sin embargo, a los pocos días, el cacique logró escapar de la cautividad, aprovechandoo un descuido de quienes debían custodiarlo.
