My fiancee and I stayed here after recently getting engaged at Angel Falls. The posada is located off the main streets in Puerto Colombia, about 10 minutes walk from Playa Grande beach. To enter, you pass a mango tree(luckily for me, warm, sweet ripe mangos!) and then cross over a man made bamboo bridge, which adds to the character. The property is gorgeous and very well kept. Tropical flowers, lime trees, mango trees, coconut trees, and passion fruit vines abound. You get to enjoy the scenery during breakfast on the patio while feasting on fresh fruits of papaya, banana and mango; savory arepas, coffee, and squeezed juices.
When booking, we requested for round trip taxi transport from Caracas in which Evelyn and Monica arranged. Our driver, Gustavo, was super friendly and communicative. We thoroughly enjoyed his company during the 4 hour ride, and we're glad to know that he was going to be bringing us back to Caracas as well. If you'd like to arrange a taxi, you should suggest him as your driver.
Luckily for us, at the time of booking La Bokaina was offering a low season romance package which included flowers in the room and a bottle of wine at a discounted rate. Our room was tastefully decorated with tropical flowers from the property, and a cold bottle of white wine from Chile. The bed was comfortable and the large shower had warm water. You can relax on a private hammock outside your room overlooking the grounds. Evelyn was very sweet and welcoming.
We were very sad to leave and wish we could have extended our stay. We even contemplated renting the entire place and getting married there.
We will certainly return one day.
