Hello. The weather is great and alternates between cloudy and sunny. The good thing about the weather is that it's sunny, which reduces the humidity. Otherwise, there will be constant high humidity. Especially in the evening and at night. The humidity is so high that you're constantly sweating and completely wet. You feel like you're in a sauna all the time. Humidity percentage is 90%-95% and 24 degrees at night and during the day 75%-85% humidity. The morning and the day before the afternoon is cloudless sky and then comes the downpour afternoon from 15.00-18.00 often. Rain showers then, you cool down a little. then the high humidity comes again until the evening to night. This is how it goes again and again in May-November. The best time to travel is from December to April. Dry season and not as humid as 90%-95% but, there will be 70% - 80% humidity at night and the day will be 50% - 65%. Temperature has little to do with it in Panama. It is the humidity that matters a lot in this climate zone. Why does humidity play an important role because the higher the humidity the warmer the perceived temperature right then is considered uncomfortable and high risk of heat stroke. If the air temperature is as high as 30°C and the relative humidity is 90%, it will feel as if the air temperature is 41°C. If the relative humidity increases to 100%, it feels like we have an air temperature of 44°C. To be relatively comfortable when the air temperature is high, the body must be able to get rid of excess heat. We sweat and the sweat evaporates. This process removes heat from the body. When the air temperature starts to approach the body temperature of 37°C and there is high relative humidity, the evaporation of sweat slows down. This makes us "feel" that the temperature is higher than what the thermometer shows. When the temperature is higher than our body temperature, water vapor in the air can also condense on our bodies, causing discomfort and danger. The greater the relative humidity, the more uncomfortable. Most people will put it as moderate if you don't love heat! I love heat, so I don't mind humidity, but it gets tiring in the long run with constant high humidity in the air.— This text has been automatically translated into English

Almost no rain. Lots of sunshine. Strong. I went out with umbrellas because of the sun. Nice Panama I visited many tourist sites. I would come back again. The good thing everywhere even cabs are air conditioned.— This text has been automatically translated into English
