Best time of year to visit Panama

For bright sunny days and rare showers, the best time to visit Panama runs from late December to mid-April. That is when Las Tablas Carnival for unbridled joy, Baru Volcano at its best and coffee picking season are awaiting you. It is also the time when Panama is unbelievably packed with tourists, so be ready to pay an arm and a leg for a room. The wet season from May to December is known for frequent rains, especially on the Caribbean coast. Well, more rain—more fun on a rafting adventure. The rainy season also offers vibrant green landscapes, turtle watching opportunities, and great surfing conditions.
