getting from Boquette to Bocas by van/bus/ferry

Hi

We are a group of Rotarians doing a service project in Boquette then moving on to Bocas. We want to go by van or bus and ferry since there are about 10 of us this will be cheaper.

Any idea of where to find a van/driver or bus and ferry schedules to do this??

Thanks thanks

I'd simply take a regular, public bus to David and from David to Bocas. I don't thing there is a cheaper way....

No reason to take a ferry unless you need to get a car to Isla Colón.

Bus from Boquete to David ($1.45 pp)

From David you take a bus to Almirante (or one that is going to Changuinola but you get off before). ($8 pp)

Once in Almirante you take a taxi to the docs... (50 cents per person?)

In the docs you take a boat to Isla Colón ($3 pp)

What type of service project are you guys doing in Panama?

Rotarians in Boquette are arranging for us to deliver books and rain ponchos to a school and also to do painting, etc. We want to do something in Bocas as well, but can't seem to shake anything lose having contacted BESOS and another group to see if they need a dozen helping hands...Ideas??

Appreciate your detailed response, it will help us a lot!
