Panama is totally worth it. As said before bocas is the call during the winter but the pacific cranks all summer. I have only been there once but saw santa catalina break everywhere from shoulder high to almost double OH. Its a pretty makeable wave and its actually safer with a little more size since it breaks a little deeper. You never see shots of it but there is also a left there (not as good, but thats a relative term) which can relieve some crowd pressure. Playa Venado (or Venao) was really fun as well with nobody else in sight. That was surprising since access was so easy. We got lost in Panama City and were escorted out of town with some policia guy with a machine gun. he just kept pointing his gun in the direction we were supposed to turn! classic.

Has anyone ever been to Panama for a surf trip? If so, any recommendations for places to stay, surf spots, surf tours, other preparations?
I'm going in February and I'm torn between risking death in Santa Catalina or relaxing with some more melow beach breaks in Pedasi.
