Bocas del Mar, on the mainland in Boca Chica, is a spectacular vacation gateway to so much more to see and do on ocean and land. This area of Panama is Latin America at its best. Activities are open to everyone visiting Boca Chica with daily scheduled departures and day tours. See below for more details of what’s on offer.
Activities on Land & Ocean
Bocas del Mar 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. See local area map (pdf).
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 comfortable excursion boats. 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’re experts in the Chiriqui area are happy to share our knowledge. The following is a list of possibilities. You may also email us for our complete latest trip guide in pdf format.
