Drive from SJO to Boca Chica Panama..help please

Flying to SJO Tuesday. Will spend one or two nights in SJ. Then

heading for west coast, would like to drive to Boca Chica Panama.

Any and all suggestions would be appreciated. Last minute trip.

Want to go fishing along the way ( on charters for near shore fishing)

not deep sea for Marlin. Want to stay in places that have AC.

I know this is a lot and I am typically well researched but this just

happened. Thanks in advance

Boca Chica is at the Pacific side of Panama..remember that you can not drive a rent a car across the border Costa Rica with Panama...try with Alamo rent a car I think they can help you with the logisitics...or just try to get a bus to David then to Boca Chica, Panama.

You have to go to David and from there to Horconcitos in Pana Hwy..is a detour to Horconcitos about 42 kms from David. It is located athe right hand side of the road ...maybe a taxi from there that wil cost about to Boca Chica port about $ 15.00

Spoke to National Car. The details about crossing the border were "iffy"

It most definitely would require a car change which can be arranged but might not be worth the trouble. Looking for clear flat water,good beach, good food

(local non processed, fresh fish) and decent hotels with AC. Prefer if no children are around. Anyway, thanks for your prompt response.
