Getting to Bocas del Toro from Boquete After Your Tour
Making a trip to Bocas del Toro after your tour is easily doable. And it's definitely an awesome place to visit! It's best to go from Boquete rather than returning to Panama City. We recommend taking a shuttle from Boquete to Bocas del Toro. Please reserve your shuttle tickets ($35/per person plus tax) online in advance here:
You get on the shuttle at the main town square in Boquete. The shuttle ride is about 3-4 hours long and then you will be dropped off at a water taxi station in Almirante. The cost of the water taxi is included with your shuttle ticket costs. You will then take the water taxi for about 20-30 minutes until you arrive at the main island of Bocas Town in Bocas del Toro.
We suggest staying on the main island so you will have easy access to hotels, places to eat and shopping. Some hotels we recommend in Bocas del Toro are:
Getting back to Panama City from Bocas del Toro
The best way to get back to Panama City from Bocas del Toro is to take a flight on Air Panama from Bocas del Toro (BOC) to Albrook Airport (PAC) in Panama City. There are no flights offered from Bocas del Toro directly to Tocumen International Airport. So first, you will need to fly from Bocas del Toro to Albrook Airport which is a small airport located right in the middle of Panama City. Then from Albrook Airport, you will need to take taxi (around $30-40 cash only) out to Tocumen International Airport which will take around 45 minutes to an hour depending on traffic.
We do not include in-country flights from Bocas del Toro to Albrook Airport in the tour costs. The only in-country flights that are included in the tour costs are flights originating out of David.
