I'm going to Panama, from 28 of June to 13 of July. I'll travel from Panama City until Bocas del Toro. I'm concern about the weather conditions, i've seen in the weather forecast that it's not so good the weather there, rains, thunderstorms...Can anyone tell if that is realy true? Will i gona have weather to catch sun at the beach??!!what about the hurricanes, do they usualy pass over Panama?

Weather in Panama is variable at this time of the year, but always hot. What i mean by variable is that it can be sunny in the morning and then very wet by the afternoon, especially on the east coast. It is a tropical humid climate where thunderstaorms tend to roll in over the wet months (around may-October) mainly in the afternoon and evening. Mornings can be fine though and probably the best time for the beach there.

You'll be glad to know that Panama is not in the hurricane zone, but when I was there (Early September last year) I saw some massive thunderstorms roll in.

All you or anyone else is able to do is check the "Weather Underground" 5-6 days in advance of your departure: No one can predict the weather 20, 30 days in advance..today it is raining in Panamá City, raining here in El Salvador also, it's the rainy season: punto, bring umbrella and rain gear with you.
