Panama has no where near the number of gringos but also not nearly as developed so more limited choices, the two touristy areas Decameron and Playa Blanca on the pacific will cost about the same as CR, beaches are similar, there are more beaches to visit closer to CR that are more remote.

Panama is not nearly as commercial as CR, the country has been discoverd though. do expect lots of billboards in english promoting the newest beach resort.

Panama would be a nice change to CR and Panama City is 100 times better than San Jose. sort of like comparing Detroit to Miami
