An oasis after the full park hike

We walked the full trail of Cahuita National Park from the town entrance to here. It was a very hot and humid day and we didn't pick the best shoes for our hike, so by the time we reached Boca Chica, we were so ready for some relaxation and comfort. We just had water and a couple of beers, no... read more

We went to Boca Chica twice. Once for lunch once for dinner. We love Rodolfo and Carine. First of all the food is awesome. Good value and grat taste. I felt so at home. I really dont want to ruin the secret, but this place a gem. Rodolfo makes great food and conversation and embodies the spirit of hospitality. He... More

We arrived here after the hiking in Cahuita national park. We were walking to the bus when we were invited for a snack or a drink since the bus took half an hour to be there. So we drank a nice cold coke, could even try the swimming pool or showers if we'd like. All we needed after a beautiful... More

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).

If you're staying in Cahuita and decide to walk the Cahuita National Forest trail, Boca Chica is the perfect ending point to your journey. Rudolfo and Caren are amazing hosts and incredibly kind and energetic - very real people. Rudolfo is originally from Italy and has a great spirit and energy about him. 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 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

Please note that there is a new owner since mid 2012!! The owner, very nice and friendly man who made our day! 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
