Panama Weather
Panama has a tropical climate with uniformly high temperatures and relative humidity, and there is little seasonal variation.
Temperatures on the Pacific side of the isthmus are somewhat lower than on the Caribbean, and breezes tend to rise after dusk in most parts of the country. Temperatures are markedly cooler in the higher parts of the mountain ranges, and frosts occur in the Cordillera de Talamanca in western Panama.
Panama's tropical climate has two seasons, one dry and one rainy. Variations depend on the region and altitude. The Caribbean coast has a much longer rain season than the Pacific coast which has a more pronounced dry season. The Azuero Peninsula has an extremely arid climate during the dry season. In contrast, the mountains get plentiful rain during the wet season.
Climatic regions are determined less on the basis of temperature than on rainfall, which varies regionally from less than 1,300 millimeters (51.2 in) to more than 3,000 millimeters (118.1 in) per year. Almost all of the rain falls during the rainy season, which is usually from May through November, but varies in length from seven to nine months.
The wet season is considered winter, from May to and is typically the off season for tourism. Summer, or the dry season, lasts from December to April, with March and April generally being the hottest months.
