Bocas del Mar Hotel is situated at Boca Chica on the Pacific coast. Boca Chica is the gateway to the Gulf of Chiriquí Marine National Park with its many luxuriant green islands, palm-tree-fringed white beaches and a variety of wildlife.
The property is a 20-minute drive from the paved Pan-American Highway, set on a hilltop in a secluded natural environment. It's on a rocky point, not the beach itself, but pretty coves and sands are easily accessible. It’s smart, up to date, and service orientated, an aspect much appreciated by its guests. The 16 cheerful, Mediterranean-white, chalet-style bungalows have floor-to-ceiling windows from which you can survey the tropical gardens. They have fresh, airy décor, and plenty of comfort and leisure amenities.
The pools are particularly seductive, but if you can drag yourself away from your lounger there are plenty of activities on offer, such as kayaking, horse riding, bird watching and nature hikes. There's a private dock to facilitate beach-hopping among the islands and leisurely, daily scheduled trips in the hotel’s own vessel: fishing, whale watching (Jul-Nov), snorkelling and diving.
