Hey Lauriemar, thanks for the kind words about the blog.
When I cruised the websites, I found Buena Vista Realty (I've got the website marked on my home computer but not at work), and that is, I believe, whom I talked to. Also (this may be the same group of people, I don't remember), the people who put out the local Bocas Breeze newspaper do real estate, and I dealt with them. I went to them because Claudio recommended them.
I never have yet made it to the Pearl Islands or Boquete.
I, like you, took a second trip, but I spent my time looking at property on the Pacific Coast vacation side frequented by the City folks (Coronado, Farallon, etc.). I liked the area as a vacation place, but it was fairly high (not by U.S. standards) and, at the present, is really only a place people spend weekends at, and there's nothing much else to do.
