I want to take a vacation for a couple of weeks to the islands of Bocas del toro because I've heard so many good things about it. If I really enjoyed the area I was thinking about spending more time there (maybe 3 to 6 months). I make my living as daytrader, so this is the reason I ask this question. For the people that live there or have spent alot of time in Bocas, could you tell me how reliable are the internet service providers. I understand that sometimes the internet will occassionally go down even in the states, but is it a recurring problem (if there is a problem with internet service?) Also, are there alot of electric outages in Bocas? I was born and spent alot of my childhood in Santo Domingo, DR and we were lucky if we got 12 hours of electricity a day? Is it anything like that? I know Panama has a first world infrastructure by central american standards, but I would like to know about this because this is how I make my living. If it wasnt then I really wouldnt care.
Any help would be appreciated.
