In Costa Rica they call this the Green Season, in Boquete Panama it is just rain. Boquete is in a rain forest, if it did not rain, it would be a desert. I fled the Sonoran Desert to rehydrate in the hills of western Panama. I love the rain but since so many people fear the rain I though I would write a bit about my observations on the weather here.
At this lime of the year we enjoy beautiful clear mornings, usually followed by a few hours of rain. In October the the the amount of rain increases into day long events, then they slack off again into a dry season that starts in December and ends in April.
In my experience the dry season is the most difficult time here, not the rainy season. There is too much sun for me during the dry season and it gets warm.
Boquete has one other interesting aspect, it is rarely hot and although occasionally cold not really enough to justify heating or cooling in houses. Consequently local residents can forget about large heating and cooling bills.
