HISTORICAL CHIC

The Boca Chica, a gem from the infallible Grupo Habita, is perched over an idyllic beach cove in the heart of Acapulo’s vibrant Caleta neighborhood. During Acapulco’s mid-20th century heyday, the Hotel Boca Chica was where all the action happened. This 1950s architectural jewel, once a sweltering holiday hotspot, took a downturn when the city of Acapulco itself fell out of favor in the 1980s, after which the building underwent 20 years of neglect. Although these years took their toll, most of the original features and furniture luckily remain intact, which means the hotel is now an architectural—indeed, an anthropological!—treasure. 

INTERIOR DESIGN

LAIDBACK LUXURY

The design team at Boca Chica worked painstakingly to revive the hotel’s prominent atmosphere of tropical luxury from the original structure, but just as intensely to modernize the facilities to suit contemporary standards of comfort: the result is anything but old-fashioned. Such interior features as the marble and granite mosaic floor and lattice ‘celocia’ brickwork were carefully restored.

The décor reflects the time period of the original structure, riding on the wave of 1950’s nostalgia that has lately swept through the worlds of fashion, design, and film. The building was restructured to offer 30 guestrooms and six suites, each with private terraces and hammocks, while earth tones, cool whites, and mild greens reflect the clear blue surrounding waters.
