The biggest of Thank You's are owed to Gary and his incredible staff at Cala Mia. Our group of 8 split our trip between 2 places and we started out in a nightmare resort that held us for extortion.

A great place to relax and take in the sea. Staff is friendly and accommodating; rooms and restaurant are funky and clean. Food is delicious. There's a private beach with nice walks with the monkeys. Cruise in their beautiful sailboat. Visit the local village. Many things to do if you choose...or not-can't think of a better place to relax. Owner... More

We 2 couples arrived on the last leg of our 2-week trip to Panama. When we arrived in Boca Chica, parked our rental car as suggested and hauled our luggage down to the area to be picked up, we didn't know what to expect. We were picked up in a pachanga boat and the 17 minute ride was a mystery,... More

We spent a half day fishing, a relaxing day by the pool and beach and a half day kayaking and hiking. The staff is delightful. Food is truly incredible. Rooms are spacious and clean with lots of...

Stayed here with my wife and 6 year old daughter in February '15. A high end resort on a very private island that offers peace and quiet, but allows for a ton of activity if you chose. We hiked with one of the staff to see the howler monkeys and to visit an indigenous family (an incredible experience). We went... More

This place was simply amazing. The owner and staff exceeded our needs and our experience was one we will never forget. We took a hike to a local indian village were we saw first hand how people live in harmony with nature. We'll be back again next year.
