Description

Owned by Italian lady Marina, this is a hotel with just a few rooms on a back street of Boca Chica (well, this place only has back streets). Mind the low branches,we are 3.1 meters high and pruned some trees. Camping next to building underneath trees, use of shower and toilet in a room. US $ 20 per night, 2 persons and a van. US $ 2,50 per day per computer (!) for the use of internet (reasonably fast); not really a sympathetic gesture. There is an outdoor space underneath a roof for relaxing, including hammocks (though 1 is taken by the owner). Howler monkeys, geese, chickens and roosters. Marina brought some potable water in gallon bottles, tea one day and some handmade icecream the next. We took the lancha for US $ 1 per person to Boca Brava island, where we hiked on the muddy roads in search of Hotel Boca Brava (supposedly with hiking trails, restaurant, kayak rental), which we did not find. Better ask the lancha captain to take you there. Instead we hiked to the Seagull Cove Lodge to have lunch in the restaurant with a killer view (no camping allowed, we asked).To be honest; Boca Chica is not really an action-packed destination. But it's fine just to chill. We spend 2 nights. Boy, it can really rain cats and dogs here at night.

Latest Check-Ins

There is not really a sign or something like that for the place. We just estimated which one it could be. But the village and the buildings there do not really look inviting in particular. If you want to catch a boat there its maybe a good place to go from, but if you are looking for a beach or so go to Las Lajas.
