How much money should I budget ?
Bring plenty – but there are ATM’s everywhere and most places take VISA & MASTERCARD – and we have negotiated discounts at service providers and marinas along the way – got to www.panamaposse.com/sponsors/ for details and contact them for our discount rates and are subject to availability.
Fuel prices are pretty much universal – Costa Rica has a very high import duty on items so imported goods are expensive – but if you go with local items it’s affordable.
Actual Budgets ?
In 2018-2019 the average monthly budget was
$ 3388 – the lowest of all vessels spent under $ 2000 the highest
over $ 5000 x month.
One of the 2017-2018 participant blogged extensively
about their budget while on the Panama Posse
