It's a wonderful place mixed with luxury and wilderness. The staff is super hospitable, generous with their sweetness and kindness. During the time we stayed, we would wake up at 5:30 to watch the sunrise while sipping our coffees. And in the evening we would sit by the bool with our chilled white wine watching the sunset. Every evening different...

If you are looking for a relaxed, quality experience in an unexplored area of great natural beauty, highly recommend Cala Mia. From the launch trip from David (totally worth it), to the warm reception and service, to the great excursions to nearby deserted islands with Caribbean like beaches, to the excellent food, Cala Mia affords a special, memorable experience.

From the beauty, tranquility, luxury, service, amenities and food, this is pure heaven. We honestly didn't believe a place as special as Cala Mia existed on this earth and was accessible to less than the Richard Branson types.

This magical small boutique resort and island resort is located in Panama on the tip of a pristine island that runs into the Pacific Ocean, flanked by untouched tropical palm-lined beaches. 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.
