Bocas del Toro in December?????

I really want to go with my friends and my girlfriend for right after the 25DEC and spend new years eve there. I was wondering if anyone thought that was a bad idea. One of my major concerns was the water temperature... I was there during the summer but im not sure if it will be as good during the later months like December.

Thank you for the advice.

Water temperature in Bocas is fairly constant. It shouldn't be much change between summer and winter.

Christmas and New Year holidays are busy in Bocas del Toro and I would make sure I have my lodging reservations before I go in late December.

Hi - would anyone have opinions on visiting Bocas over Thanksgiving weekend (nov 22 - 25)? Should we make reservations at a hotel/B&B in advance if we want to stay on an Isla outside Bocas Town? We would rather wing it and not commit to something before we get there. We've successfully done this in Costa Rica and all over South America, but not sure about this area? Being there Thanksgiving weekend would be the early part of our trip, would it be better to hold off visiting Bocas until the end? We leave Dec. 3rd from Panama City. Thanks in advance!
