Hi, and welcome to the Cruisers Forum.
Your question is rather too broad to answer easily.
I was curious enough to look up Bocas del Toro and it would seem that you do indeed live in a sailors paradise. Regrettably few of our members would have direct experience though I'd be sure that any that do will chime in.
My search did turn up three marinas
. I'm sure that you have at least been past them and may have even walked through them. Why not take a closer look at what there is there, and work out how they could be used.
If you can have a chat with some local boat owners so much the better. If you can find someone who needs crew then that would be better again.
You don't say if you have any commercial
application in mind, but what suits private use may not be useful commercially and vice versa.
Please do take the time to think about suitable boats as buying
takes a fair amount of cash, and frequently is not easily reversible without taking a significant loss.
