traveling from boquete to bocas plane/bus

To get from Boquete to Bocas it sounds like you first need to get to David in order to catch a connecting bus to Almirante or to get a flight. Any idea how long going by bus might take and are there several buses/day from Boquete to David and then David to Almirante? And what time do ferries stop running for the night to Colon from Almirante? Do flights depart daily from David and if so, how many flights/day?

Thanks for any info.!

Well....There are also shuttles (about 3 hours) that run directly from your hotel to Almirante (the jump-off town to Isla Colon-Bocas) for around $38 p/p or taxis for $100 for the taxi. Bus to David will take about 45 minutes(lots of mini buses) & buses(4-5 hours) leave around every 30 minutes from David. The water taxis run every 30 minutes to Bocas & usually stop at 6:30pm. There are no direct flights from David to Bocas - although Air Panama has run a few connecting flights - Panama-David-Bocas recently at around 5pm. You will need to check with them.
