I am considering visiting Costa Rica in early December for at least a week. Before or after I would also like to spend a few days in Bocas Del Toro where a friend lives. I am not sure of the most practical way to plan this trip as want it to be as stress free as possible! Any suggestions appreciated regarding the logistics. We would be two women (in their sixties) traveling from California. We are not new to traveling but never to Central America. Thank you.
