Buses in Panama

We are going on our first Panama trip later this year. Can someone tell me what the experience of riding buses throughout the country is like? Are the buses typically on time? Are they safe? How do you safeguard your language? Are buses air conditioned? Do tickets need to be purchased in advance? If so where?

Earlier this year we visited Costa Rica and ran into a problem with bus tickets. It turned out that the major routes sell out a day or two before and we could not get a bus ticket on the day we arrived. Is this the same for Panama? We are looking at traveling between PC, Bocas, Boquete, and David.

I’d appreciate any info.

Not sure if this helps but the bus station has luggage storage that closes at 7:30 pm
