we will be visiting Panama in a few weeks and would like to travel beyond Panama City possibly to Boquete and possibly a nice beach area. Id like to see where expats retire and see some of the country. Can anyone recommend a nice drive for a 3 or 4 days,places to stay along the way and comment on the ease and safety during the journey. we definitley don't want to spend more than 3 to 4 hours a day on the road. is there a beach area that does not involve ferry boats? we are an older couple and not backpackers so we are looking for comfort also. also are there other expat areas around Bouquet?
thanks for any help
