Flight from Panama City to Bocas del Toro

Do you need to have the flight reserved? I've read that you just walk into the regional airport and can go - but I want to be sure - no last minute surprises.

Does anybody know how many flights leave Panama City for Bocas? Thanks and any info you can give me on the flights would be helpful.

What is the name of the airport that I would fly from Panama City to Bocas?

I always reserve my flight and they have been full every time. Fly out of the regional airport, Allbrook. You can book your flights on line with Aeroperlas. Have fun!

About 2 years ago you could almost always just walk into the airport and get on a flight to where ever you wanted to go in Panama - but for the past couple of years, you really do need to book in advance and during peak periods as much as 3 months in advance if you want to fly on certain days...

Both airlines' sites are easy to book through.

Cheers,

WE just flew to Bocas Del Toro 14Sep08 for two nights. We booked ahead of time with Aeroperlas. We were glad we booked ahead of time because the flight was pretty full there and back. The flight is an hour and the cab to our B & B was $1. You could practically walk there if you know where youre going. WE loved Bocas, it was our favorite spot in Panama.

Donna keep in mind the 25 Lb. luggage limit. Additionally do not bring $100 bills with the serial # beginning with a CB. The Panama Government will not accept them.

Chigal, how much do they charge for luggage over the limit? I will bring $20's with me.

Thanks for this tip.
