Access to Isla Boca Brava

The property is readily accessible by water. If coming by water, it is a 45 to 60 minute ride from Port Pedregal in David.

Access is via Horconcitos, 40 km east of David on the Pan-American highway, and then another 16 km on a secondary road to Boca Chica (accessible all year around), it is then 10 minutes by boat from Boca Chica to the property.

The town of Boca Chica is a fishing and agricultural center with about 300 inhabitants and offers facilities such as: gas station, 2 small grocery stores, school, health center, public port and 2 bar/restaurants.

Construction does require some coordination but as is evidenced by the number of properties already developed in the area, such as cabins, big game fishing lodges, eco resorts and private houses, it is certainly a viable proposition. It is our intention to construct a residence on an adjoining lot.
