Hi there,

assuming you're arriving in Panama City, you can either fly to Bocas del Toro with AeroPerlas or Mapiex Airlines or take a bus to Almirante or Changuinola. From these cities you can take a water taxi to the islands which is actually a really nice trip. So if you don't mind the bus journey from Panama City, I'd definitely go for the second option. There also shouldn't be the need of booking in advance.
Hope this helps,
