Internet Cafes

Hi, all,

This isn''t exaaactly about sailing, but I will soon be going on vacation on the Caribbean coast of Central America. We will probably stay mostly around Isla Colon in the Bocas del Toro Archipelago off Panama. There''s also a good chance we''ll be spending time in the small port towns of Costa Rica.

During this trip we will need to correspond with the States and the internet seems the cheapest and easiest way to go. While I''ve met many travellers who virtually live in internet cafes, I haven''t any experience with the service.

Do I need to keep my Compuserve account in order to use these Cafes or do I pay my the minute (or hour) for the whole service? If I am staying on the move, how will responses get back to me?

Thanks in advance,
Chas
