We'll be heading to Bocas Del Toro in late November and I'm debating going via Costa Rica.
Our other alternative is flying to Panama City instead, but we are departing Bocas via PC, so if we can come in via SJO we thought it may be more interesting. There's no difference in costs, and it actually saves us 1 leg of flying.
We'd arrive just after noon on a Saturday and I believe the Bocas flights are on Sunday. Is there anything to see / do in proximity to the airport area for an afternoon / evening?
