We've been to Bocas 4 times and it's really our destination of choice now. We usually rent out in Big Creek and just enjoy the water, seafood and the jungle. We'd like to come during the Christmas holiday this year and are considering bringing our 18 month old daughter. She walks and talks, but we're a little concerned about whether a trip down there might be too rustic for her. Would you travel to Bocas with a small child? Is there adequate medical care if she became injured or sick? What precautions would you take if they were on a boat? Is the in-country flight from PC safe with a child on your lap? Is there any type of child care available? (not to leave our daughter alone with, but rather to accompany us on a boat ride).
I realize that our activity options will probably be severely limited, but it would be nice just to have the whole family relaxing together.
Thanks for your help.
