Hiring a maid or housekeeper in Bocas del Toro, Panama is much less expensive than in the US. It can range from $2.50 an hour to $5.00 an hour.
We pay our maid $20.00 for 4 hours to clean our apartment. She is very good at what she does so we like to give her a bonus on Christmas or a present on her birthday. When you find the good ones, as anywhere, you want to keep them.
