Bocas del Toro, Panama, has two surf seasons. The first one is from December until April. The biggest and most powerful swells come in December and January. At this time of year, crowds can get bigger as tourism's peak season is also during this period. February and March also see consistent swell with sunnier weather and fewer crowds. April is considered a transition month that sees smaller swells more suited for the beach breaks.
The second surf season is during June, July, and August. July sees just as much swell as December and January. June and August traditionally have smaller waves and are great months to surf the beach breaks with the occasional good reef break swell. One of the great things about surfing in Bocas is the variety of waves within a short distance.
