  • The wet season, from mid-April to mid-December, brings more frequent rainfall and higher humidity. Don’t let this deter you, however! The rain brings a luscious & green rainforest, as well as high water levels in rivers & waterfalls. Hello, waterfall chasing & river rafting! 
  • Keep in mind that some areas of Panama, such as the Caribbean coast and the San Blas Islands, experience a microclimate with rainfall year-round. The Pacific coast and the highlands have a more predictable dry and wet season.
