seasons in panama ?? two, wet and dry . it is not when you move it is that you move. i have lived here 17 years  in panama city , in the interior , now in chorrerra panamas like 4th  largest city.  i have acclimated my self to the climate as i do not need air conditioning to live , some cannot . i have chosen to live higher up than my surrounding either in a high rise in the city to a hill top over looking beautiful lake gatun. i have ceiling fans in all rooms , large windows and plenty of shad , insulation and draperies that can be used to block the sun etc. i welcome the rainy season as it is cooler , greener , less tourists .. but after a few weeks of it get tired of the rain jajajaja never satisfied huh ?? i have known about as many that have come and gone as stay ,, but those that don't make it usually will not be satisfied any place they move .

You are so right Mike, we came from Australia and love it here In Chiriqui, the rain gets a bit much but on the whole love it.
