Kayaking to Bocas Del Toro  (2 Answers)

What sort of information do I need if I am going to be kayaking to Bocas Del Toro from near Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica.
Can I get an exit stamp from Puerto Viejo?
Where Do I get my entry paperwork stuff in Bocas, if I tie up to a marina, could they help out with the paperwork?

This might seem like a crazy adventure, but I've done lots and lots of trips like this in Alaska, with a tent and a Kayak... I am skilled in this endeavour. However do not know the legal mumbojumbo and need a little help.

Overnighter  (5 Answers)

I'm planning on being in Bocas Del Toro for a week and was thinking of taking a shuttle bus to Puerto Viejo for a night or so. I'm a lone female traveller and everything I read thus far about the area says there can be sketchiness with regards to crime. Has anyone been there that can offer some insight to the safety of the area and whether it is worth the hassle? Thanks

Money matters  (2 Answers)

Hi,

I'll be staying in Puerto Viejo for two months this summer (June-August). I'm wondering how to do my banking...can you just withdraw from a local ATM using a US debit card? Anyone have suggestions about how to access my funds without having to bring a lot of cash (which would be hazardous and not smart). Thanks!
