Panama weather in June continues a hot and wet trend that began in May. It’s not the best time to visit this Central American country.

Panama has three major travel destinations: the Colon cruise port on the Caribbean coast, the Panama City cruise port on the Pacific coast and Bocas del Toro on the Caribbean coast.

Colon and Panama City share similar weather because they are only 46 miles away from each other despite being on different coasts.

They are both hotter and drier than Bocas del Toro, which lies farther north.
