Where to go when - our guide to Panama

Bocas del Toro

The weather in Panama is wide and varied

The most southerly of the Central American nations, Panama also represents the narrowest point of the land mass separating the Caribbean from the Pacific. Situated well within the tropics, Panama has all round high temperatures (30°C) along the coasts and lowland regions. The western mountains provide a higher altitude and corresponding lower temperatures, especially at night.

Panama can be visited all year round but peak season tends to fall from mid-December to mid-April, when there is less rain. The majority of significant events fall during these months, including celebrations of Semana Santa (Easter) and Carnival (February - March). This is also when the Panamanians tend to explore their own country, so most regions tend to be busier. Outside of these months the country experiences a wetter climate, with short, sharp rains. Panama has a lower risk of tropical storms than its northerly neighbours thanks to its location outside the hurricane belt.
