Climate

Panama has a tropical maritime climate with a hot, humid rainy season (May to December) and a short dry season (January to May). Geographically, Panama is a narrow country from north to south. Even in the two different seasons, temperatures in Panama rarely change more than 20 degrees, regardless of the altitude you are in. The summer lasts approximately from December to April. In May, the rains (most lasting no more than an hour or two) start in the afternoons. In July and August you have daily rainfall expected, especially in the mountain ranges. Throughout Panama you will find many microclimates, especially in the mountainous regions. As trade winds blow across Panama, the effects vary greatly depending on the surrounding geography. Although at times the afternoons can be humid, regular cases over hours or days are very rare …

Best travel time

The shorter dry season, which runs from the end of December to the end of April, is considered the best time to visit Panama, and with good reason. Azure skies predominate, at least in the drier pacific plains protected by Panama’s mountain ridges. The dry weather makes it easier to drive on unpaved roads and the exploration of the rainforests and also the sea water is much clearer by the absence of rain. The dry season also includes the lively holidays of Christmas, New Year, Carnival and Holy Week.
