There are several papers on Eastern Pacific coral reproduction by Peter 
Glynn and colleagues. Two of the primary study sites are in Panama, one at 
Uva Island, and the other at Saboga Island.

Here is one of the earlier references that I have handy. Others are also 
published in Marine Biology.
1994.  Glynn, P.W., S.B. Colley, C.M. Eakin, D.B. Smith, J. Cortés, N.J. 
Gassman, H.M. Guzmán, J.B. Del Rosario & J.S. Feingold.  Reef coral 
reproduction in the eastern Pacific: Costa Rica, Panamá, and the Galápagos 
Islands (Ecuador). II. Poritidae. Marine Biology, 118: 191-208.

I suggest that you look up these papers and peruse the materials and 
methods section therein.
