Island Trip 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. How to get to Boquete.
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 BOA Office in Plaza Los Establos on Main Street in Boquete. How to get to our office in Boquete.
