What is the best time of year to go to San Blas Islands?

The weather in San Blas can be divided into two main seasons. The first of them considered as the "high" season, starts in December, with the arrival of the the "Aliseos" winds. During this period from December to April, the Aliseos winds blow strongly and the climate remains sunny. This is considered the best season for sailing, kite surfing and surfing. The other station, known as the rainy season (or "low" season), starts in May and runs all the way through November. Despite being called "low season", this time of the year is not so rainy. Usually, the rains disappear quickly and most of the day is sunny. At that time, there is a little wind and consequently a few waves, being the perfect season for snorkelling, paddle board and kayaking.
