Last Minute Panama Help (travel warning change in plans)
anyone know of any ideas we may not be thinking of to get to panama without going all the way back to san jose (bambu is in the southern part of costa rica - Caribbean side). I am looking into flights form limo, but when I goto the airlines that fly from there - I get no options....
any thoughts from anyone that has been to this area, would be appreciated. We can always take a bus back to san jose and fly out or a bus to the pacific side to cross and then a bus back to the Caribbean side - but we would like to be as efficient as possible to make the most of our last 10 days in central america.
Thanks for any input to help with options....
Bulletin from Bocas Warden
To those hotels/hostels this email sent to, please inform you guests.
Today, Friday 9 June: It is not a good idea to travel to, near or thru Changuinola or mainland Bocas Del Toro Provincia. It is not a safe to be in this area, and there are road blockages preventing transit, due to protests between Panamanians and their government.
If you need to travel from Isla Bocas to anywhere, it is advised that you leave only by air, to Panama City, David or San Jose, Costa Rica. Either, remain in Isla Bocas until the protests end, or change you travel arrangements accordingly.
When it is save to travel by boat/road from Isla Bocas, an advisory will be sent.
At 7pm, Friday 9 July: Per Isla Bocas Alcalde, Joe Anderson, and Isla Bocas Hospital Emergency, Dr Luis Mou, condition in Isla Bocas is very normal, no problems reported.
