5 reasons to retire in Panama
Who has never dreamed of retiring to a warm country? Panama is a tropical country in Central America where it is hot all year round. There are only 2 seasons in Panama: the dry season and the rainy season.
During the dry season, as its name suggests, not a raindrop for about 4 months, from December to March. The rainy season is generally more pronounced on the Caribbean coast than on the Pacific coast. In Coronado (Pacific Coast), it sometimes rains 1 hour or 2 per day and you then enjoy a rest of sunny day. The humidity level is however quite important but nothing unbearable either!
Temperatures range from 28 ° C to 35 ° C throughout the year, except in mountainous areas where you have cooler temperatures where you can even wear a small jacket. This is the advantage of certain areas of Panama: neither too hot nor too cold!
