Windy season in Punta Chame, Panama

The high pressures of the North Atlantic are the origin of the wind in Panama. From this point, trade winds of the northeast are formed that cross the ocean and reach Punta Chame.
The word Alisios comes from the Latin root Alis which expresses a pleasant character. In honor of its name, trade winds blow regularly and moderately, and are the perfect winds for kitesurfing.
Trade winds circulate between the tropics, from 30º latitude to the Earth's equator. The union area of the trade winds of both hemispheres influences Panama’s climate. The north-south movement of this confluence produces the dry and rainy seasons, the main characteristic of Panamanian climate.

The dry season lasts from mid-December to mid-April. This is the best time to practice kitesurfing in Punta Chame.
