We had a bad experience in this place. The owner pretend to be very friendly when we approached the restaurant to see what's there, at the end he charged such ridiculous high prices for food and gave us false info about the busses. I don't recommend stopping there, even though you might want after a long hike. There is places... More

After the drink we had a nice and refreshing swim in the pool before we planed to go back to Puerto Viejo. Since we hadn't eaten since breakfast we decided to wait for the next bus to have... More

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 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... 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
