Best Time To Travel To Panama
We recommend visiting Panama, anywhere from December to April because these months prove to be the driest. Anytime is worth a visit but we recommend avoiding visiting in November, as this the month with the heaviest rainfall and several local holidays where shops and accommodations often close down.
Panama offers plenty of adventure sports, nature, and culture. Enjoy biking along the Panama Canal, trekking in the jungle, visiting the Chiriqui Highlands, or scaling a volcano. Spot dolphins, manta rays, sloths, monkeys, and more throughout your time in Panama, or go on a bird watching trip where you can see a whole spectrum of hundreds of species of amazing birds.
Get a unique cultural experience by spending a day with the Emberá, a semi-nomadic people, wander through Casco Viejo in Panama City or attend the Carnaval de Las Tablas where you can familiarize yourself with the traditional folk music and dance. Don’t forget to eat some tasajo and hojaldra before leaving!
