Next to the Seagullcove Lodge in Boca Chica is another hotel, Bocas del Mar. We noticed steps going up from our hotel’s beach so we decided to wander over and take a look. It’s a very new looking hotel with gleaming white bungalows and carefully landscaped grounds. There is an attractive pool and restaurant area, and the views are very beautiful. I also noticed that unlike our hotel, there were no steps except for the very long flight of stairs down to the beach.
I really love the Seagullcove Lodge and we will continue to stay there when we come to the area, but it doesn’t hurt to know what else is available. I asked in the office about price and was told that a room here is $139 plus tax, so about $153 in total (if I remember correctly). There are some larger rooms with hot tubs that cost a bit more, and this is “green season” (aka rainy season which is off season here), so the prices may be higher at other times of the year. Check the website for more accurate info. You can hardly go wrong anywhere in this beautiful area though. It just depends on your budget and what you enjoy.
