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. Furniture, materials and woodwork are home designed and handcrafted by local artisans blending aesthetics, art, quality and functionality into a new standard!. ... more   less
