Which islands for a few days after Panama City?

My sweetie and I are heading down to Panama in early March and are planning on spending a couple of days in Panama City, exploring the Old City, doing a canal transit, etc. then what we have heard is to head to the islands for a couple of day. San Blas? Bocas? Or ?? We are looking to relax and explore, nothing too rustic. Do each group have their own personality or are they more similar? What has been your experience?

Thanks

If you don't want rustic then San Blas is out - even the most up-market lodge on the islands is rustic....

You might find the Pearl Islands or the outer islands in Bocas (away from Bocas Town) would be what you are looking for.

Cheers,

Thanks, I will scratch San Blac and look into Pearl Islands or outer Boca.
