Getting to Bocas del Toro
2 Easy Ways to Get To Bocas del Toro
There are two road routes into Bocas del Toro Province, one over the lush, jagged mountains from Panama City through Chiriqui/ David, the other from the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.
Buses and taxis travel both of these routes.
If you are traveling from Costa Rica, take the bus to the border. (Closes at 5 pm Panamanian Time!)
From there, you will travel to the coastal town of Almirante, Panama where you will take a 25 minute water taxi ride to Isla Colon, home of the Palma Royale in the magical Bocas Archipelago.
