Panama has a tropical climate with very little difference in temperature between summer and winter. At sea level the average temperature is 30 degrees Centigrade. There are regional differences in climate because of the mountain ridge that splits the country in two parts.

The rainy season is from April to December: in this period the humidity is around 80 percent. On the Caribbean or Atlantic coast there is more rain than on Pacific.

Safety and security

Traveling in some countries or regions brings risks with it. That should not always be a reason not to travel there. But part of a good preparation should be finding out what the risks are, if any.

You can find information on the CIA FactBook web site. The US Foreign Department has useful information as well.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention site has current information about possible health risks in the region where you are traveling.
