I'm really excited to visit Bocas del Toro this Nov. for a 90 day stay, this article make me even more excited. I'm having trouble finding a reasonable rate on an apt. on line. I've read that it isn't unusual to just fly there & see what's available, as many places do not advertise online. I'm looking for something around $500. Can anyone advise me on this subject. Perhaps provide a contact email also ? Thank You so much
