Island Adventure description:
From Boquete, we’ll drive 1.5 hours to Boca Chica, a small fishing village on the Pacific Coast. Then, we’ll pass through the mangrove forested volcanic islands of Laguna de Chiriqui toward the Gulf of Chiriqui National Marine Park, a 14,740 hectare marine park with around 25 uninhabited islands which serves as a refuge for howler monkeys, leatherback and hawksbill turtles, tiger herons, and exotic fish. There are no mammals on Isla Bolaños due to no fresh water, to see howler monkeys, we recommend to stay overnight in Isla Boca Brava (we can drop you off at the hotel after the tour).
The sun tends to shine over the white sand, palm-lined beaches in Gulf of Chiriqui even when it’s raining everywhere else! Depending on visibility and climate, we’ll be snorkeling around one of the beautiful islands and pass the late morning and better part of the afternoon lunching, exploring, swimming, relaxing in a hammock, and playing on the white sand beaches of Isla Gamez or Isla Bolaños.

Gulf of Chiriqui National Park, Chiriqui Province, Panama
The Gulf of Chiriqui National Marine Park is located on the Pacific side and weather has little to no impact on this trip. Sunny year round in the mornings and noon-time. It may rain during the evenings during peak rainy season (does not affect the trip as it is during the return time). Also, only during peak rainy season (Sept-Oct), there may be some rain during the day for 10-minute bursts. It is recommended to just get in the warm ocean water during that time. Trip will not be cancelled if it is raining in Boquete, as that has no relation to where the trip goes.
At the A1 Office in Plaza Los Establos on Main Street in Boquete.
Lunch & Drinks
For our hearty lunch, we can accommodate most diet modifications as everything is on the side, buffet style, and you can assemble as you wish. Included: seasonal fruits (apples, oranges, pineapple, grapes), fresh coconut from the island, seasonal vegetables (bell peppers, cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, broccoli), bread, meat (turkey, salami, or ham), cheese, condiments, cookies, chips and salsa or guacamole, and drinks (fresh water, iced tea, fruit juice, as well as alcoholic drinks such as rum cocktails, national beers, and wine). (Items are subject to change based on seasonal availability).
Trip details may change due to severe weather, sea conditions, unforeseen events.
The island is located in a National Marine Park, with no structures allowed, there are no facilities/bathrooms available. The bathrooms available in Boca Chica are extremely basic (bring your own toilet paper if you need it).
