The flight to Bocas from Panama city is a quick, fun 1 hour. Â Just enough time to enjoy a soda and flip through the in-flight magazine. Â Before you know it you’re back on the ground.
If you’re lucky and have a clear day, the sights are fantastic. Â From Panama city, the plane flies North along the canal. Â You’ll see ships awaiting their turn to enter the canal on the Pacific side. Â As you cross the country, view Gatun lake and surrounding jungle. Â Then bank West, and follow the Caribbean coast all the way to Bocas. Â Passengers sitting on the left side of the plane can see the Pacific ocean over the mountains.
