Storing luggage

by winevines Online Now Dec 26, 2006 at 10:14 AM

I want to visit San Marcos de la Laguna, but I will have some luggage with me. Can the small launchas handle this?
Or is there a safe place where one can store luggage in Pana?

Also, what is suggested about travelling by boat in the am or pm? I hear the winds can be bad- are there larger ferry type boats to go from Pana to San Marcos de la Laguna that would be more stable?

Thanks for any advice.

    I HOPE YOU HAVEN'T GOT BIG LUGGAGE AS IT COULD BE TRICKY TO HAVE THEM ON THE BOATS UNLESS YOU GO ON A BIGGER BOAT (AND PAY MORE FOR IT).

    I'M NOT SURE IF I REMEMBER RIGHTLY BUT I THINK IT'S DANGEROUS FOR BOATS TO GO ON THE LAKE AT PM.

    Thanks for the tips- Can I please ask how much did you have to pay for the "private launcha" with your bags? ALso, was there help for you to carry your bags?

    I am asking because my partner has been ill and has lost his stamina so he will not be able to help much carrying stuff around like he usually does.
