What is the best time of the year to go to Panama?  Is there any month when it is cooler than other months?  We have friends who want to travel with us on the Panama Canal small ship trip, but who hate heat.

 The monthly tempearature does not vary by more than a few degrees in Panama, but the raiinfall does. Look at the Regional and Weather tab on the web page. In Panama city The coolest month is October, but it is the rainiest and most humid, while February and March have the least rainfall but are the hottest. Bocas del Toro has a totally different profile.

 We went in June and it was very hot and humid. Some torrential rains too. And even hotter on the post-trip to Cartegena, but not rainy. However, it was a great trip and we survived!
