Replenish your body and soul in Panama’s tropical sunshine. Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of our water’s edge setting.

Bocas del Mar Hotel in Chiriqui is a stunning boutique hotel with modern, luxury features. In a privileged coastal location on the mainland at Boca Chica, it is perfectly positioned for a completely relaxing vacation. In 2017 we were voted Top Small Hotel in Panama in the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards.

Hotel accommodations are in large, contemporary-style bungalow guest rooms, including the magnificent Premier Suite. All rooms are set in tropical gardens alongside the glistening blue water; open your drapes each morning and the Pacific Ocean is there to greet you!

Here your day can be as chilled or as adventurous as you want it to be. Bathe in our two beautiful infinity-style pools, sun yourself on our wide terraces or private cove, or let us take care of you in our stylish restaurant and bar. And all the time you’ll be taking in the gorgeous surrounding views of the sailboats on the water and the islands beyond.

Nestling amidst a stunning tropical paradise, Bocas del Mar Hotel in Boca Chica offers the perfect base for discovering the region. This is the gateway to the Gulf of Chiriquí Marine National Park with its many luxuriant green islands, palm-tree-fringed white beaches and an incredible variety of wildlife, right on the hotel’s doorstep! We have our own private dock at the hotel, ideal to go beach-hopping or set off on a sports fishing trip. Our trip program is varied and we even run our own comfortable excursion boat with a daily tour schedule in the Gulf of Chiriqui.

Bocas Del Mar, in Boca Chica, is easy to get to.
