I am going to panama (bocas, pacific coast) in a few weeks and possibly costa rica as well.

I am going to need reef booties at a few of the locations where the water will be in the high 70s, low 80s.

I currently have a pair of 3mm rip curl booties, am wondering if i can get away wearing those or if i should invest in a lighter 2mm reef shoe with a heavier sole.

any feedback is appreciated.
