Boca Chica – Bocas del Mar Hotel

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.

    Good article, but I would like to provide additional information, usually the highest rates in the dry season, the months from January to March or so. Regularly hotels that are surrounded with many green areas have a different cost and the surroundings allow visitors to enjoy a different experience to traditional hotels.


    • Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment! Yes indeed, most places have higher rates during the dry season because not only is there less rain which is good for tourists who want to do things, it’s also cold up north so more tourists are travelling to warmer places. We lived in Florida before here and it was the same thing. Everything was more crowded and more expensive December – March.
      Thanks also for stopping by because your website comes through with your comment. ( It looks like you have a very interesting business transporting people to popular destinations for good prices. Do you have people who speak English? I can think of a lot of gringos who might appreciate what you offer.

    We stayed here two nights. It was great. The food and service was excellent.But we did like Seagull Cove a tad bit more. Either one is a great stay!
