Boca Chica is a city in Gulf of Chiriquí. Boca Chica is located on the western Pacific shore of Panama, near the border of Costa Rica. Boca Chica is on the shore of the Gulf of Chiriquí (Golfo de Chiriquí), which is considered by savvy sport fishermen as one of the best kept secrets in big game fishing. Also in the Gulf are Coiba National Marine Park, Islas Ladrones,Islas Secas, and Islas Paridas all known for world class scuba diving and snorkeling. It is a 90 minute drive (32 miles) from David, the capital city of Panama, and is located 18 miles south of the IntraAmerican highway, via the community of Horconcitos, in the San Lorenzo (Panama) District. There is only one road to this town and it ends at the estuary of the Pedregal River with the island of Boca Brava just across the water. This road to the fishing village used to be famously rough, especially during the rainy season, but recent improvements have made it an easier drive. (less...) (more...)

About Boca Chica


Boca Chica is the closest town to Parque Nacional Marino Golfo de Chiriquí [2] and is said to be one of Panama’s best kept secrets. The fishing is incomparable near Boca Chica, with an abundance of marlin, tuna and dorado. The village is remarkable, too, for having no skyscrapers or three story buildings, and for having pristine beaches giving the locale an untouched feel unlike anything in Panama.


Wahoo Willy's is one of two places to eat and there is a restaurant within the family-owned inn, Gone Fishing [3].


There are no stores of note in this tropical paradise.
