Clear waters but the wait staff at most of the Oceanside restaurants are extremely aggressive. The vendors are just as bad. Pay attention to your surrounds.

We visited this place as we never booked it so we were curious to see if we had missed anything...we didn’t. Beach is average, sand isn’t white, water is fair quality considering there’s a commercial cargo port across the bay with cargo ships passing through....More

Stayed at the Whala Boca Chica nice hotel. Staff was friendly massages from the hotel very affordable. Stay in the Adult only area if you have a chance, costs a bit more but worth it.

If you are looking to get a hook up Boca Chica is the beach for you. Plenty of shopping, but beware don't take a seat from anyone unless they work DIRECTLY for the Restaurant. You will be scammed.

As a Dominican born in 1977 it hurts me to see how they have destroyed this once beautiful beach. What a shame. Pristine, no more.

First of all I did not like the parking system. But the food made up for it. The kids enjoyed the beach and again the food was excellent! The food could have been less expensive, - after all, it's coming right out of the ocean...More

We arrived Punta canta, so had quite a drive out to our resort. We booked at the Whala resort, which is in Boca Chica. I will review them in time, but this is about the town it is around. No nice way of putting it,...More
