Boca Chica Getaway

We have been to the Seagullcove Lodge in Boca Chica before, so when an Oferta Simple came up we bought a couple more nights there. It’s a great little hotel with only six cabanas so it feels very personal, and the excellent staff does everything possible to take good care of their guests.

The setting is also wonderful. The grounds have beautifully tended flowers and trees, and the view of the water and islands is lovely. It feels so tranquil and relaxing.

If you want a very relaxing and beautiful getaway, I would highly recommend this place. We thought of going whale watching but we learned the whales were a fair distance away, and others said the whales were staying mostly below the water and were hard to see. So, we opted for an excursion to a nearby island instead which was very fun. More about that in the next post…

    Looks like FUN


  2. Kris, this is beautiful. I think we stopped in Boca Chica to catch a boat to a small island where we stayed in a hostel/hotel. I can’t remember the name of the place, but it was one of our favorite places in Panama. Boca Bravo? Not sure, but the boat ride was about 20 minutes and we had to hike up a steep hill to the hostel. I want to go back!

    I keep seeing all the great things that your doing. I also keep referring back to your budgets on the site and completely blown away by all that you get to do. I hope you keep this going. I’m really loving this one. Tiki bars, amazing ship, beautiful sky lines etc… Why would someone not live there! LOL Thanks so much for always sharing.


    • I know! Knowing what I know now, I am so glad we couldn’t afford to retire in the US or we would have missed all this. Prices seem to be rising everywhere and Panama is no exception. We’ll have to do another cost of living month when we’re not traveling. Still though, it’s so much more affordable than a similar life in the US. Also, most of what we do here is close by. Boca Chica is maybe 1 1/2 hr drive from David so you could easily go just for the day if you didn’t want to spring for a hotel.
