Tourist Visa Renewal at Sixaola??

HI there, we have to cross over into Panama next week to renew our Tourist Visa. Have plans to stay in Bocas. Some other friends just went and were only given a 30-day visa extension on their passport when coming back into Costa Rica.

Has anyone else had this experience at this border? We are in CR doing a volunteer work, and our assignment ends in December,so a 90-day renewal is very important. Any help is appreciated. We could go to Paso Canoas, but wanted to see Bocas.

This border crossing is known for being difficult. There are cases where people only got ten days. You may want to try and get an official document stating what you do.
