While Panama's Pacific and Caribbean coasts are starting to crowd up with behemoth resorts, happily there is still sanctuary to be found in the Gulf of Chiriquí, a seductive sliver of Central America. Look no further than Isla Boca Brava, a sparsely populated fragment of land that has seemingly snapped off the Pacific coast. It is one of the largest of the islands in the Gulf of Chiriquí.
Cala Mia Resort, fully renovated in 2014 is a romantic and intimate private retreat located on the top of the pristine Boca Brava Island, within the National Marina Park of the Chiriqui Gulf. Cala Mia’s 11 bungalows are perched on the tip of a rocky promontory on the island's east coast. Set in landscaped gardens filled with towering palms and tangles of tropical blooms they overlook two idyllic bays flanked by mangroves and dense forest. A permanent natural soundtrack of crashing waves, crickets, geckos and howler monkeys quickly set in. Other local critters and sea life include iguanas, ocelots, raccoons, jaguars, coyotes, ant eaters, dolphins, whales, sea turtles and numerous tropical fish.
At this secluded Panamanian hideaway you can start your day with yoga by the beach, before taking a boat to a spit of sand to snorkel over dazzling reefs. Other days can be spent kayaking through mangroves, riding along deserted beaches on horses and hiking in the rainforest with an indigenous Ngöbe-Buglé guide. You can spend you time lounging by the infinity pool watching the Cobalt-blue Ocean or just relaxing at Bar Luna Azul watching the pacific tide rise and fall. A trip to the rustic Spa Cielo that is perched on top of a rocky outcrop reached by a rope bridge; provides complete spa services.

Each of the 11 bungalows suites have their own "Rancho" rest area, with a beautiful thatched roof, columns carved by skilled artisans, broad sofa, hammocks, and a beautiful decorated bathroom...
