Might it be possible to get to Cambutal by boat, either hired or hitch hike, for a few days and return the same way....or hike/camp a rough coastal route? I plan on spending the month of Feb 2017 on the West coast of the Azuero, incl a few nites at Heliconia. Have been to Cambutal in 2013 and would like to see it again. Will also be looking to spend few nites camping on one of the islands, fishing, spearing. Probably Coiba or if poss Montuosa.
