About La Bokaina


  • Car Parking: La Bokaina has a safe private parking lot that is lit up during night time. There are enough parking lots to cover the needs of the posada.
  • Electricity
    • The electricity is 120 Volts, 60Hz and if you travel to Venezuela with a device that does not accept 120 Volts at 60 Hertz, you will need a voltage converter. We do not have these at the hotel. The general plug in Venezuela is a flat blade type (the same type as in the US). At La Bokaina some of the rooms also have a European style plug with two round pins.
    • La Bokaina has an electric plant that is used whenever there are power cuts. This means that we will have light, water, A/C etc even though the power is out.
  • Insects: Venezuela is a tropical country and just as there are lots of plants and birds there are quite a few insects. If they bother you, a good way to keep them out is to keep lights at a minimum and of course keep the door open as little as possible. For the mosquitoes it is a good idea to bring a repellant. The number of mosquitoes depends on the weather. More rain, more mosquitoes.
  • Internet: La Bokaina offers you free Wifi on the best connection available in Choroní. Please ask at the reception for the password.
  • Payment: La Bokaina accepts cash and Venezuelan debit card payments with Visa, Master Card, Maestro and Visa Electron. All tours are paid in cash. To reserve a room a 50% advance payment is made.
  • Personal Responsibility & Safety:  Please note that we do not take any responsibility for valuables and/or personal belongings in the rooms so please take normal safety measures.
  • Taxi service: The hotel has a taxi service that can arrange for airport pickups and travels to pretty much the whole of Venezuela. Contact us for more information and prices.
  • Tours: We always try to help you book your trip or tour with companies that we, from experience, believe offer the best services. We cannot guarantee availability, and the fulfillment of the services is outside the control and the responsibility of La Bokaina. However, we will gladly hear your opinion after the trip. We also reserve the right to make changes in the tour offers as well as their content. So to be sure to have the latest information always contact us.
  • Washing: We have a washing service where we wash your clothes. Please contact us for prices.
  • Water
    • All the rooms carry hot water and La Bokaina has, like most places in Venezuela, a local storage tank so please do not overuse the hot water as it can run out.
    • We don't recommend that you drink the water right from the tap, instead we provide water, free of charge in a water dispenser with both hot and cold water.


Most of our international guests that don't have a vehicle, take a taxi from the airport or other destinations in Venezuela. We recommend you to use taxis and can help you book one you can trust.

  • By Bus: If you wish to use other less expensive alternatives, you can take a taxi at the bus terminal in Maracay and only pay for your seat or take the public bus from the same terminal.
  • By Car: If you are driving, follow the signs to Choroní from Maracay and once you get to the entrance of the National Park Henri Pittier, drive for about two hours. Make sure to watch the speed as the road is quite narrow in some places, blow the horn in every curve and make change of lights if driving during the night. Once you get to Choroní, follow the road to the main square (Plaza Bolivar) and take a left turn after it (following the signs Puerto Colombia-Playa Grande). Take the next possible right turn and follow the road crossing two bridges. You will find a third bridge that you won't cross, take instead the road to the left. Follow that road (passing Posada Las García and El Portete on your right hand side) immediately after El Portete, make a right turn and follow the dirt road for about 5 minutes until you get to La Bokaina. Follow the parking signs and you have arrived.
  • Distances to main sites from La Bokaina: Once in La Bokaina, you can walk to most of the sites and attractions in the area. The beach promenade where you take boats to the beaches on the coast is only 5 minutes away and the main beach "Playa Grande" is at 10 minutes walking distance from us. 


Check in is at 2:00 pm. Check out is at 1:00 pm. If you wish to get here earlier or leave later, you can leave your belongings at the reception desk while your room is ready or you get back from the beach. We have a guest bathroom at your disposal.


  • No pets: Under no circumstances it is permitted to bring pets to La Bokaina.
  • No external guests: It is not allowed to bring guests that are not staying at La Bokaina into the rooms. 
  • Do not steal decoration and furniture: All furniture and decorating elements in the rooms are property of La Bokaina. This also includes towels and clothes hangers.
