I was there a couple of times and left out of Chicago on American. Then into Miami then to PTY ( Panama City ) Toucaman Airport. We checked into the Caesar Park Hotel and flew Air Perlas to Bocas the next day. I think that Taca flys out of NYC.
I have studied at El Paraiso and was very happy with the value one gets. The quality of their spanish classes is not surpassed by many schools ( have studies in numerous). They are also very client orientated and will attend to all your needs.
Have not traveled from New York, but here are 2 options:
- fly to San Jose, costa rica, thant hop on a Nature Air flihgt to Bocas or you can also go the land route via a bus to the boarder, than a bus and boat taxi
- fly to Panama city and take a flight with AIr Panama or Aeroperlas to the Islands.
Go for it and enjoy….
