Panama, located in Central America, has a weather pattern similar to that of its neighboring countries.
Like most countries in this area, there are best and worst months to visit Panama.
Panama attracts many of its visitors through cruises, because of the Panama Canal. Many western Caribbean cruises will stop at Colon, on the side of Panama that borders the Caribbean Sea.
Some cruises travel through the canal to venture into the Pacific Ocean on the other side of the country.
Panama’s weather pattern is divided into two main seasons: the wet season, and the dry season.
On the Caribbean side of the country, these seasons are felt more strongly.
Panama’s wet season runs from June through November. In much of the Caribbean, this time of year is also known as Hurricane Season.
Panama is rarely, if ever, severely affected by hurricanes, but the country does experience an increase in rainfall during the wet months.
