I’ve been to a couple places in Panama. I went to the Canal region, but I wouldn’t recommend that because it’s a city and you’re probably looking for a beach. I have been to a great place called Bocas del Toro – it’s a collection of small islands, and people get around by taking boats instead of taxis. I had an amazing time there and they have beauuutifullll beaches. I didn’t have a problem with the heat, it was the same or better as the other tropical countries I’ve visited. I’m not sure what region you are looking to visit, but I definitely recommend Bocas del Toro!

I stayed at Playa Blanca resort in Panama. I’ve been all over the Carribean, and this was my favorite destination.

It differs from other resorts in that locals come there often with a day pass or for the weekend for family vacations. We were able to meet lots of local people who gave us inside info on travelling off the resort.

It’s also home to the world’s 2nd largest swimming pool which was being constructed when we were there, so definately want to go back to see it now that it’s open.

The people, culture and history are amazing.

Like a PP, I also went to Bocas del Toro! I looooooooooooved it. In December, it will be hot because it is their high season. But humidity won’t be AS MUCH of a problem as it would be in green season. It will still be hot and humid but no more so than any other tropical destination. My dad lives in Costa Rica so I’ve been there quite a bit and I found Panamanians (cab drivers, the children etc) to be a little bit pushier than in Costa Rica. Still really friendly, but there is a lot of poverty if you’re not on a resort. So just like any other 2nd world country, you need to be careful and smart. But it’s definitely worth a visit and would be a great, unique honeymoon destination, in my opinion!
