Getting To Bocas

From Panama City

The international airport of Panama is at Panama City’s  Tocumen Airport- the ‘Hub of the Americas’. There are many airlines and itinerary options to reach Panama.

Air Panama is the national airline that will fly you to the Bocas de Toro airport from Albrook airport- a 30-minutes taxi drive from Tocumen International Airport. It is important to know that Air Panama requires you show up at Albrook Airport one hour before your flight.

If you ever got a problem to book your flight with Air Panama, contact us we will try to resolve with our local contacts. Make sure to reserve tickets well in advance, they are quite busy sometimes even though they have two flights daily to Bocas.

By Water Taxi

If you are in Panama or Costa Rica and manage to go to Almirante by yourself there are two water taxi companies that will bring you direct to Bocas: Bocas Marine Tours and Taxi 25.

Each of them leave for Bocas every 30 minutes until 6PM, always remember that when you cross the border, Panama is one hour later than Costa Rica. Keep this in mind with your planning to get the last boat.

The trip is 12 hours in the comfort of the Ferry Xpress with 3 restaurants, private rooms and comfortable seating. This is a great option for our 8 night/ 9 day visitors.
