The moment you arrive you know you have made the right decision ...as this resort is in a gorgeous spot on the Pacific coast of Panama. The small private cottages are uniquely appointed with hand-made wood furniture, South American textiles and the most unusual mosaics made of small black stones which appear every where on the floor and the side...

Four of my friends and I sailed into Cala Mia's cove to meet our friend's parents. We ended up staying several nights.

We had a wonderful 5 days at Cala Mia. The resort is lovely, the food is excellent and the staff very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed taking out the kayaks, relaxing by the beach and pool and going on a snorkeling excursion. The weather was lovely, some rain at night but otherwise great. Highly recommend!

This magical small boutique resort and island resort is located in Panama on the tip of a pristine island that runs into the Pacific Ocean, flanked by untouched tropical palm-lined beaches. At a 15-minute boat-ride from Boca Chica, bordering on the unspoiled, for-you-to-discover Panama's Marine Park "Archipielago de Chiriqui", Cala Mia is the perfect jumping-off point to world renowned sport fishing grounds: Coiba's Hannibal Bank or Islas Las Secas; Islas Los Ladrones for scuba diving and for surfing: Moro Negrito and Isla Afuera! Luxury hotel Cala Mia consists of 11 beautiful Bungalows, or suites, each with its own thatched roof rancho and all within 10 meters from the ocean or the beach/bay-side.
