The rain in Boquete Panama is TERRIBLE
I get that it’s the rainy season now, but I NEVER EVER thought I’d have to deal with this stressor.
I knew the rain gets cold compared to when I was living in & around Panama city, & I thought I could handle it, but I can’t.
It rains here NON STOP! And I’m not talking one day here, I’m talking EVERY SINGLE DAY!
And don’t forget the horrific lightening problems in Boquete.
When I was in Panama city, it would rain for an hour, maybe 30 minutes & stop. There was only ONE week where it rained a lot, but even then it would stop after let’s say 3 hours.
Today (this is just one example) it’s been raining for 4 hours & there’s no sign it’s letting up. I had to wait for 3 hours to make a phone call because I just can’t talk on the phone when it’s raining. You can’t hear ANYTHING!
This means I can’t work or get any type of job that requires phone work.
The only way to get to the store, is if you go first thing in the morning, & since I’m NOT a morning person, it’s almost imposable to even go shopping & I don’t have a car, but even if I did, no one who’s sane wants to go out in this weather.
Even the winters in Canada are milder than this.
If you are thinking about coming to live in Boquete, think again. The rain I loved in Panama city is NOT like this.
