Estaciones de tiempo en San Blas, Panamá

We have a tropical climate , with two seasons, the summer or dry season and the spring or rainy season. Temperatures range from 25 to 30 º C (80 to 90 Fahrenheit).

The spring season runs from April to December , a season with light winds, calm seas and isolated rains but tends to have sudden brief showers that refresh the air and are followed by the sun. During this season it is best to be prepared for all types of weather. It can be hot and sunny at times , but a cool shower can appear at any time.

The summer season runs from mid- December to April , a dry, sunny season with winds from the north and east, which means there will be strong winds and little or no rain. During these months the state of the sea becomes difficult , mainly for the exit and entry of the boats at the mouth of the Armila river.

Note: During these months we do not ask for children under 9 years of age, since in some tours or transfers there will be walks between 60 to 90 minutes. A moderate hike but with a certain degree of difficulty.
