Great and simple accommodation place next to the sea. Lara and Massimo created a beautiful place where you can get in touch easily with other travelers. The atmosphere is really warm and Lara and Massimo are helping to arrange a lot of excursions to close beaches or via bus to other destinations. We had a great time at the Residencia and we will come back, if possible.

The rooms we had were good a/c was amazing she accommodated all 3 of us into one room. Only downfall was you weren’t allowed to use the kitchen or anything other than utensils. At the end of our trip we decided to do a boat tour to the private islands and told the wife about it and she recommended a place to book it so we did so later on upon check out we came back she asked about it and we told them about it and how great our experience was. Her husband overheard us and became very hostile and rude because he does tours and wanted us to book with him when we never got told he did tours when we asked his wife about them and the rest of evening before we left he was rude the whole time and was hinting at us to just leave already. And he had the audacity to ask us if we can read, cause he was angry we supported someone else in community other than him, I felt like his greed really did sink in cause he wasn’t making anything off us for a tour.

This was a nice little find back from our trip from Boquete. A bit of a drive off the main highway but the road was good. This is a nice little town with good views. The staff were excellent and the food was delicious.

This is a quaint hostel-type place with private rooms and showers. The rooms are basic., with A/C and comfortable beds. The owners are great hosts and enjoy their guests. The town of Boca Chica is small with little to do but enjoy the friendly, charming atmosphere and tasty local food.

New owners Lara and Massimo are very hospitable and helpful. The breakfasts were very tasty, and the prepared an Italian dinner for us one night. Very good and fun to share with the hosts. Our room was comfortable, but we should have opted for one with A/C. Lara packed us a cooler with cold water for our beach outings and arranged an island tour for us.
