Península Burica is in Chiriqui of Panama and South Costa Rica.


The half-island Burica is divided between Costa Rica and Panama. The north coast belongs to Costa Rica and the south coast to Panama.


Tropical forrest and with some smaller hills. Most of the land is already used to raise cattle.

Flora and fauna[edit]

The half-island is one of the few refuges for squirrel monkeys. Howler monkeys and white face monkeys are pretty common. There are several kinds of snakes, birds and plenty of sea life to discover.


From May until December it s pretty wet and the only access road might get closed.

Get in[edit]

Take a bus to Puerto Armuelles from the border or from David (Panama). Make sure you get there before noon in order to catch the only car which goes until "Bella Vista".

Get around[edit]

Walking or horseback riding are the most common forms of transportation due to the bad roads.

See[edit][add listing]

Beautiful beaches, nature, animals, rural life.

Do[edit][add listing]

Surfing, snorkeling, feeding monkies and walking around.

Buy & Eat & Drink[edit]

There is one little store with the absolutely necessary in "Bella Vista". So all the fresh food you need you'd better buy in Puerto Armuelles. The tap water is drinkable but stay away from the streams because there is a lot of pollution from the cattle.

Sleep[edit][add listing]

Mono Feliz - This American owned property has 4 cabins (20 US per person and night) and offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. Campers are welcome and have to pay 5 US per night which includes the use of the pool, showers and bathrooms. If you bring your own food you can use the kitchen for a US$3 extra fee. Tell the driver of the car to "Bella Vista" that you want to get off at "El Medio" and from there find your way along the beach to the Mono Feliz (Happy Monkey) Lodge.

Stay safe[edit]

Keep away from cocaine packets who might get stranded once in a while.

Get out[edit]

Ask the locals when the car is going back because this depends on the tides since the car is passing the beach.Create category
