Boca Chica – Gone Fishing

We visited Boca Chica last weekend (see previous posts) and had a wonderful time! We also walked to the neighboring resort, Gone Fishing, and met the owner. Since it’s right next door, it’s no surprise that there are wonderful views of the water. The resort itself is also very nice and looks like a fun place to stay.

.

The owner told us that he has been there about nine years, and he was one of the first people to build in the area. At that time the road was barely passable and the area hadn’t been developed at all. Since then he has seen a lot of improvements and new homes. Because of the economic downturn though, interest has waned because people don’t have the money to invest. As things improve, he expects interest to resume and property values to increase. It certainly is a beautiful area and I can see why people would like to come here.

This pretty much catches me up on things I wanted to post about Boca Chica at the moment.  Since our weekend getaway, I’m not sure where the week has gone. We’ve been doing things with friends, running around town, getting some business handled, and now it’s time to get organized for our trip to the US. People were concerned that we wouldn’t have anything to do when we were retired, but that definitely is not a problem. The days continue to fly by!

    Looks like you had some good weather. Which of course is always a bonus when one is looking at such beautiful scenery. 🙂

    Are there ever any people at these resorts? I know in one post you had mentioned some that were looking into Panama to retire to and were a bit disgruntled (and then you shared with them all the good and bad, too), but whenever I see pics of the bars and restaurants, they look empty. I told Ray it seems like when we go to them when in Panama, it is always so quiet. Perhaps we choose to eat too early, or we pick the wrong restaurant on the wrong day! I just like to people watch and have some activity while enjoying a long meal (In El Valle recently, we were fortunate that the restaurants were busy and entertaining).

      There was no one at this resort. Since the outdoor dining room looked set up for dinner, I figured maybe they were out fishing. At our resort there was only a handful of people, but also there are only 5 bungalows. There weren’t many people at Las Olas either where we went a couple weeks ago. We went out to eat Friday night here in town, 7:30 PM and noticed the restaurant was just starting to fill up when we were leaving. Maybe people here do tend to eat late.
