The narrow channel separating Roqueta Island from the mainland at the entrance to Acapulco’s bay is called “Boca Chica” (“small mouth”). For many years a stately hotel, also called “Boca Chica” stood at the end of Caletilla beach, overlooking its namesake channel. It was a favorite spot for the Hollywood crowds from the 1930’s to 1960. Then it fell into genteel decay. Recently Grupo Habita, a well-known hotel management group in Mexico City, acquired the property and brought about a complete restoration, redecoration and rebirth. Today, Hotel Boca Chica ia a luxurious boutique hotel with all the modern conveniences, but it does not forget its majestic past: it celebrates it. Much of the original décor and furnishings have been preserved or restored, and an exercise facility, a complete spa, massage cabañas by the pool, a marina, a nightclub, and a palapa dance floor have all been added. The property offers 30 rooms and 6 suites, each with a private terrace and hammock.

Hotel Information

Services & Amenities: 

The emphasis at Hotel Boca Chica is on luxury, both in the service and in the style of the surroundings. Each suite or room has its own balcony or terrace, complete with garden and hammock, and a true tropical feel. The hotel has its own marina, and a separate check-in area for guests arriving by water. Wireless Internet is available throughout the hotel. Dr. Bronner bath products are placed in the rooms. Room service operates around the clock, as does the spa.


Some of the rooms open out onto private, tropical gardens. Three of the 6 suites have separate living areas. Decoration has been carried out in earth tones, soft greens and subdued whites. The idea is to create luxury, but not in the same frenetic way that fancy hotels in big cities do it. The emphasis here is on relaxation and tranquility. All rooms have wireless Internet, air conditioning, and the amenities one would expect of a luxury hotel.

Dining & Drinks: 

The Hotel Boca Chica operates a restaurant under the management of Executive Chef Keisuke Harada. A complete menu is offered, with emphasis on modern, Asian-fusion fare. There is a sushi bar, and the restaurant will gladly prepare it for take out to your room, if you like. The hotel also operates a bar during the day and evening.


The Coco Wash nightclub opens at 10 at night and continues until 4 in the morning. Quickly it became a favorite of locals for dancing into the wee smalls in the traditional area of town. The 24 hour spa offers a complete range of services, including massages, skin care treatments, rubs, wax treatments, and nails. On the ground level, the hotel provides a modern exercise facility for its guests. The Hotel also operates a marina at sea level, cabanas at poolside for massage, and an exercise facility.
