without rez

We will be going latter part of January. Will there be a problem finding a hostel ($20 or less)at that time?

If you mean showing up in Bocas and finding a hostel right then on the spot, yes, you'll probably have problems at the end of January. Especially considering that except for February, it's one of the most popular times for Panamanians and anyone else in the world to come to Bocas.

Is that for Bocas Del Toro, Bocas Town, Isla Bastamente, and Isla Colon? The whole region? We are backpacking and don't know when we will arrive so can't make an advance rez.

Thank you so much for your response and I hope to hear from you again. We may have to re-think going there perhaps?

While it is busy - you should be able to find something on the main island (Isla Colon) in the backpacker price range or on Isla Carenero or Isla Bastimentos. I would not panic over this. In addition, there are a few new hotels above the supermarkets that are large & cheap.
