Location of Boutique Hotel Cala Mia - Chiriquie - David - Panama


Cala Mia is located on the virtually uninhabited island of Boca Brava in the Archipielago of Chiriqui, which is part of the National Marina Park in the gulf of Chiriqui. It has over 100 islands (Islas las Secas) within its boundaries with innumerable secluded beaches!

The park is a refuge for an abundance of wildlife with, -on the forest-covered islands-: howler monkeys, ocelots, margays, jaguarundis, raccoons, ant-eaters, coyotes; in the bays and ocean: leatherback and hawksbill turtles, dolphins, whales and a wide variety of other tropical fishes and in the deep blue skies: birds, birds, birds! Hundreds of species, a cross-road between 2 continents!

How to get to Cala Mia:

Cala Mia can be reached from Panama City to David, directly from Boquete, Costa Rica (ask us for our Paso Canoas taxi pick
up & border crossing service) or by (sailing) boat / yacht.
