About the Property

High-quality vacation rental properties next to Hotel Bocas del Mar

Paradise Found! A perfect longer-stay vacation or home rental property.

NEW PROPERTY from experienced owners & managers.

Bocas del Mar Rental Homes are modern & stylish single-floor bungalow suites with kitchen, part of the award-winning, high-quality Hotel Bocas del Mar development in Boca Chica.

Boca Chica is an area of outstanding natural beauty on the mainland, opposite the Gulf of Chiriqui Marine National Park & where tourism is still relatively new - about 1 hour from David, Panama's second city and its airport. There is a wide range of outdoor activities available on land or sea and it is a good touring base for inland trips to the highlands or along the Chiriqui coast, & perfect if you are home searching or working in the area.

There is a master bedroom with king bed and that same awesome view, a separate bathroom with shower. Closet/dressing space is in a separate room. There is also an extra bed in this dressing room for use by a third/fourth guest.

The beautiful suite has its own parking area and it's a quick drive down to the hotel parking lot or a 2 minute downhill walk to use the pools, restaurant/bar or go to the spectacular dock to you boat, to take an excursion or take one of the many water taxis to visit another island, beach or the village.

Large sofa, writing desk and stylish decorations and wall hangings opening onto a terrace with patio dining and lounge furniture. Satellite TV with international channels.

Leading off the living space is the master bedroom, bathroom (with shower) and the closet/dressing room for the master room (this also contains an extra single bed for optional use by a third guest-it may be possible to have this extra bed as a queen bed for 3rd/4th guest. Please inquire).

On the island opposite is a more informal diner/bar and in the village a simple village diner with tasty local produce.

The accommodations have a spectacular hillside location, just above the award-winning Hotel Bocas del Mar (which is on the water's edge). It is a 2 minute walk downhill, along a moderately steep surfaced driveway road to the hotel (no steps), or guests may take their car to the hotel parking lot.

This is a wonderful, unspoiled area. Local village stores are for essential, minimum grocery shopping only. We recommend grocery shopping (including for fresh goods) is done in David city (1 hour away) or if arriving by car from Panama City, shop in Santiago city before arrival. In both these places, you will find a good range of 24 hour supermarkets. There is no store on site.

For stays of less than one month a $200 US damage protection deposit is charged at check in, refundable at check out ($500 US for stays of one month or over).

No daily housekeeping is included, however for stays of more than 1 week, a weekly light cleaning service and sheet/towel change service is provided. Spare sheets are also provided. The cleaning of the suite by our team after you check out is included in the price of course.

Car: Recommended

Bocas del Mar, near the fishing village of Boca Chica is the gateway to the Gulf of Chiriqui Marine National Park on the Pacific Ocean.

Located on the mainland, with easy access from David city (Panama's second city) and the rest of Chriqui province, the rental accommodations have use of facilities at Hotel Bocas del Mar, of which they form a part. There is also a wide-ranging optional activity program on sea, with excursion departures from the hotel's own dock or on land.

Relax in the hotel's two beautiful infinity swimming pools, enjoy the gardens or a relaxing massage or beauty treatment. There is also a good-quality restaurant on site with a varied international menu. (Plus 2 or 3 other places to dine out in the area).

Try the Discovery Boat Trip to the tropical islands with their white sand beaches, (or whale-watching in season), go deep sea sport fishing in one of the best areas in the Americas, have a snorkel adventure, or a leisurely morning in a kayak around the bay. And don't miss the sundown trip through the mangroves.

On land, take a short hike, try an ATV tour with driver, go horseback riding or further afield take a trip to a working indigneous community or visit the coffee plantations of the Panama Highlands on a day excursion. There are also some more beaches reached by land. Please ask for our pdf guide. Some trips are seasonal.

Bocas del Mar is about enjoying nature in style.

Gulf of Chiriqui Marine National Park

Bocas del Mar, in Boca Chica, is simply the best place from the mainland to access the breathtaking beauty of the Gulf of Chiriqui Marine National Park with its unspoiled islands of tropical jungle. The National Park covers 60 square miles (155km) of islands and ocean, and is known for its green iguana lizards, humpback whales, dolphins, many species of turtles, stingrays, monkeys, and hundreds of types of exotic birds and tropical fish.

From our private dock we can arrange everything; from island-hopping in water taxis across to local ‘islas’ or leisurely, daily scheduled trips in our very own 26ft (8m) comfortable excursion boat. For example, try the popular 4 hour ‘Discovery Boat Trip’. With our local captain at the helm, explore the hundreds of gorgeous sandy coves fringed with palm trees. You’ll soon realize why the locals say that “Panama belongs to the sea”.

We organize activities directly or through local tour operators. We’re experts in this area and wider Chiriquí province and are happy to share our knowledge. The following is a list of possibilities*. You may also email us for our latest trip guide in pdf format:
