It is now "required" but not always enforced, that you should have a ticket showing you are leaving Panama upon arrival at Panamanian Immigration (at the various Costa Rica border.  So, how safe would it be to simply book a reservation on Copa (held for up to three days without paying) and take that reservation with you to show in case you are asked?  
I have in the past used a paid for ticket on United, that you CAN get refunded but only when cancelled within 24 hours.  
Copa won't refund a ticket without penalty as is shown here

You've still got it wrong, Steve. I think what you mean is "thorough" and "Changuinola."  :')

I just got back from the border yesterday night. They didn't even check my Bank statement, just my airline tickets.

Same here, coming back last week.  I have always had them ask for a ticket.  Never for a bank statement, but I make sure to have the money in there anyways. 

Also, not one single refugee to be seen.
