3 week help!

Hey! I wondered if you kind people could give us some advice for our 3 week trip to Panama in Feb please?

We have been researching and come up with a bit of plan but please feel free to offer any suggestions/alternatives! Finding it hard to choose!

We are quite adventurous and love places off the beaten track but also love sleepy beach towns and islands. Would like to see some mountains/ rainforest too and maybe some kayaking or rafting. Looking to avoid really touristy places if possible.

7th Feb arrive in Pc

8-10 San blas camping tour

11 Pc canal /other sites

12th -15/16 we are considering travelling down to either the pedasi/playa vena area?? Or possibly el Valle then santa catalina/coiba?? Having read so many good things about the 2nd option I think we are considering this

16/17 travel to David/ boquette and stay here for 3 or 4 nights

Then travel to bocas del toro (Isla bastimentos) for remainder of holiday relaxing!

not sure if it's best to fly from bocas or return to David?

Any help greatly appreciated x

Almost hate to mention it, but Volcan is way less touristy than Boquete. Shhh, don't tell anybody. ;-)

Assuming your return flight is out of PC, it is way easier and quicker to fly directly back to PC. Overland travel is about 4.5 hours back to David and then about 7 from David to PC.

Move Panama City to end of trip, after San Blas, fly up to david rent a car and do Santa Catalina, or Boca Chica, return car, taxi or transfer.up to boquete, tree truck has shuttle to Bocas, fly back to Panama City

As that was Paul's last post perhaps he never came back.
