After a hike through the national park there is nothing better than crashing in the garden of this restaurant (including pool) and enjoying the local food (Casado) with a refresing Fruitjuice (Batidas naturales).

His wife, Caren, said that he is... More

We came into Cahuita NP via the Kelly Creek station and walked the full way around to Boca Chica. We had expected as many taxis on that side, but there was only a bus. Although we were lucky to arrive in time for it, it did not stop. So we backtracked for the restaurant to call a cab and to... More

We've been to this lovely place in previous years! Food was fantastic, atmosphere was more than fabulous! Owners did change this year and didn't make it out there however the original chef was out there cooking periodically still!!

We've stopped there for lunch after our walk in the national park as it is ideally located at the end of the track. The place is beautiful and the food delicious. I could easily become addicted to the coconut sauce they serve!

As many others, we stopped there because the waitress said that there was time before the next bus to come and enjoy a drink and a swim. She seemed to know the bus schedules so we did go there. The host was hospitable, the bar was empty except for us two. They offered dinner as well but it doesn't feel... More

After the long walk thru the park we felt like we were in heaven when arriving to Boca Chica. After 2 drinks we stayed for lunch, had a swim in the pool and got a free dessert! The... More

The park ranger lady told me the bus was at 1:45, I wasn't sure about my spanish, so I double checked at Boca Chica. The dark lady assured me it was 2pm, so I ordered a fanta. At 1:45 I witnessed the bus to Cahuita stop. I paid up, 1250 Colones for a fanta, the most I have ever paid.... More

We have been visiting Parc Cahuita 3 times and we use to stop at the Boca Chica at the End of the 8Kms trail to have food and drinks. We were introduced to the owner back in 2010 by a friend who lived in Playa Cocles and went back again in 2011 but is was different, we felt the owner... More

If you take the time to walk the entire Cahuita National Park upon exiting you will come across Boca Chica. An oasis of good food, drink and relaxation as you exit the Jungle.. They have a great pool to swim in, fresh water showers to rinse the ocena and sand off. They make great mixed fruit and rum drinks and... More
