About Panama

Panama is one of the most dynamic countries in all of Latin America. With economic growth averaging over 8% for the past 6 years and billions of dollars of infrastructure improvement underway, the country is experiencing unprecedented expansion.

Geographically, Panama is located in the tropics and is only 9 degrees north of the equator. This means that daylight hours remain virtually

constant throughout the year with not much difference between “summer” and “winter”. Like most tropical equatorial regions, Panama has a dry season and a wet season. The dry season typically lasts from mid-December through late April and the wet season lasts from May through the middle of December. Even if you visit during the wet season you’ll likely enjoy some beautiful sunny mornings and early afternoons. Between the bright city lights of Panama City, the endless miles of beaches, the lush tropical forests, the warm blue ocean waters and the cool verdant mountains, Panama has something to offer everyone..
