Could use suggestions on where to stay in Panama. Will be there for a week and looking to spend time out on the beach on Caribbean side. Where are the best beaches and dive spots? Also, any suggestions on where to stay that aren't too expensive would be helpful as well. Thanks.
Bocas del Toro is the most frequented place visited on the Caribbean side, but the beaches aren't the greatest. There are none in Bocas town, you have to either take a boat or a bus to get to them. I thought the beaches on the Pacific side in the Pearl Islands were nicer. about 6 years ago
