It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Panama

Peak Season: January to March

Sun-baked summer days and very little rain lure North Americans and Panamanian families to islands, beaches, and resorts country-wide, so reserve rooms and tours several months in advance. Year-round, coastal temperatures average 85°F (it’s about 20 degrees cooler inland).

Off Season: May to November

Those who can endure thunderous spurts of rain in the afternoon and early morning will find empty beaches, hotel bargains, and the same humid temperatures as the rest of the year.

Sweet Spot: December; April

Apart from holiday times when the entire country seems full, the in-between seasons are the best of both worlds: nice weather, low prices, and a general lack of crowds.
