Weather!

Hi

Am planning a trip starting mid may till mid july starting in panama going overlandby bus finishing in mexico. route as planned so far is panama, costa rica (for a few nights only), nicaragua, guatemala and mexico (and time permitting belize but still unsure). Not to sound vain but do want to get a good tan out there and also in terms of activities would like to get a good idea of what weather to expect. Could anyone help? Would be much appreciated.

As my friend Joaquín says, "Panama has two climates - hot or nice - and two types of weather - rain or no rain." Usually, you get both on the same day. It all depends on where you are. You get more rain on the Caribbean coast and in the mountains than on the Pacific side, except Chirqui province and Panama City. Most of the time, the rain falls in brief, but heavy, showers in the afternoon. The most accurate way to predict the weather in Panama is look at the sky.

But, whatever I tell you now for July will be both wrong and right. So, be prepared for hot and nice and rain or no rain. It is the tropics.
