Over much of Panama the climate is equatorial, hot-humid and very rainy; however, there are significant differences in the temperature regime according to the altitude and rainfall in relation to the exposure to the humid flow of the NE trade wind. For this reason, the Caribbean side of the Cordillera Central and the Serranía del Darién is constantly rainy, with annual rainfall of 2500-3600 mm; instead in the southern region exposed to the Pacific, much less rainy (1400-2000 mm per year and even less in the more sheltered areas), it is possible to distinguish two seasons: a dry one, from January to April, and a rainy one, from May to December.
