how to get from puerto viejo c.r. to isla colon

We are going to Cocles Costa Rica and would like to drive to Isla Colon Panama. We need help on the border and how to get to the Island and anything else you could help us with.

Many thanks,

First off you can't drive across the border in a rental car so you would need to take the bus from Puerto Viejo to Sixaola - check out with CR customs and immigration - walk across the bridge, check in with Panama customs and immigration.

Then grab a mini bus or taxi to Almirante for the water taxi to Bocas. (Finca 60 appears to be closed right now)

Someone mentioned a shuttle service from PV to Bocas... Here's a page describing that and the do-it-yourself route:

Above is a link to a shuttle that takes care of everything for getting from PV to Bocas. We just did it last week with Caribe Shuttle. It worked out great, and was lots of fun. Here is a link to a similiar question, and what I had to say about the shuttle.
