Overview
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Boca Chica, Chiriqui Province
This cottage is situated within 50 feet of our large pier. We also have a boat house & cement boat ramp which we have water access at or near high tide. Convenient ocean access is the main attraction at Mango Bay. The water out front is often clam so it is ideal for a paddle board or to water ski. We are only 1/2 an hour from the marine park & 1 hour from such great fishing spots like Isla Ladrones.

The cottage has a full kitchen & a dining table with 4 chairs. We also have a large table with 2 large bench seats in the 240 square foot covered porch.

The master bedroom is 10 x 12 feet & the second room is 8 x 12. It has a lower slide out bed that pulls out beside the twin bed. Or we sometimes just put 2 single bed frames in the room.

All the rooms have fans & we have new air conditioner installed. The floors are all...

Interaction with guests
I work with my guest over the phone to make sure they are making plans that will actually work in Panama. This is not Kansas!! It is not just the language that is different. They have their ways of doing things & most make a lot of sense when you understand how things are done in Panama.. Victor is our on site caretaker, he is also our boat captain. He can help you find fresh fruit on the property or help you dig for clams. He is your guide on the property & can take you an adventure to the marine park.

What a beautiful place to spend a holiday! Shawn was a dream to deal with. The view was spectacular and the weather couldn't have been nicer. Warm calm ocean and dolphins!! Only bad part is we were only there for one week.

About the neighbourhood
We are 15 minute ride from either the village of Boca Chica. Or we can pick up & drop guests to the port of Chorcha in the same time. Which is now just 20 minutes outside of David. Thanks to the new paved road!!

We can be on the first beach of the marine park in 10 minutes & the most beautiful beach in the park ( Gamez) can be reached in about 30 minutes! The Chiriqui marine park will remind you of Thailand with all the small islands dotting the horizon.
Getting around
Since we are on an island, we must depend on our boats to move our guests around. We have an on site boat captain. So just tell him when you want to do your next adventure. We leave from your own private dock off our grand pier!

To go into town for supplies, it is just a matter of sending a text to Jose or one of our taxi driver friends that speak English. They can pick you up at the port of Chorcha.. Then they can help you find whatever you might want in the growing city of David. Or they could pick up the groceries/ beverages & bring them out to Chorcha where Victor can give the money for the service & for the supplies bought for you.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Enrique Malek International Airport: DAV: 29.0 km
Ferry: Chorcha or Petregal is 25 kms away by boat, but only 4 kms by taxi from the airport.: 8.0 km
If you fly in, you may want to just grab a taxi to nearby Petregal. We can pick you up there. Howver often our guests need to shop for groceries. There are no restaurants on the island.

If so, you might want to just take a cab the 20 minutes to the port of Chorcha. There is a brand new paved road to this port. From there we are ony 15 minutes away. For those driving, it is the most logical spot to leave your vehicle. It is quick to return to your vehicle, if you want to go to the mountains or into David.
