The road from panama city to santa catalina is in great condittion. People drive good and i wouldnt mind to rent a car next time. Gps works with google maps and waze you can rent one. The dificult thing would be getting out from panama

Flying isn't a real option. You could fly to David or charter a small plane to Azuero, but you'd still have to make arrangements to get to Santa Catalina.

If you don't want to drive, bus is the best alternative. Scuba Coiba has good directions on their website about which busses to take: www.scubacoiba.com.
