Private Transportation from Costa Rica to Panama - need tips

Hello - I'm leaving in 2 weeks for vacation (can't wait!) I'll be in Costa Rica the first week - volunteering in a small village (Parismina) on the East Coast (north of Puerto Limon). I need to get from there to Bocas del Toro Panama on Saturday 8/8 - but there are no flights from San Jose to Bocas on Saturday. I know I can take a bus but as a single woman traveling alone, I'd feel more comfortable hiring a private car to take me (besides - I did the bus thing in Peru - took forever and was not fun). I would really appreciate referrals to tour companies that can book this for me. Thanks!!!

I'm using Leo Rodrigues in Nov. for a transfer (within Costa Rica) and he comes very highly recommended from many on this forum. [email protected] 506-8378-0001 He responds quickly to e-mail, rates are reasonable, but not sure if he goes into Panama or not.

Have a great time!

Cahuita Tours also does private transfers and shuttles. They cover the CR Caribbean coast (that can be accessed anyway) and also down to Bocas del Toro. They are a great local company, and I can personally recommend them:

Teléfonos 2755-02-32 or 2755-00-00,
Cel 8887-74-81 or 8399-94-15
E-mail: [email protected] / [email protected]

Cheers
