Think as others have pointed out it pays to watch the dates and renew while you are about 8 months from expiry or prior to departing on a lengthy trip
That is because Panama has a rule that three months' validity must be left on passports on date of entry.

It recently changed from 6 to 3- just this year.

Canadian citizens, including those with dual citizenship, must present a valid passport in order to enter and exit Mexico. The passport must be valid until the date of expected departure from Mexico. Before you leave, ask your transportation company about its requirements related to passport validity, which may be more stringent than the country’s entry rules.
Americans entry requirements for Mexico are the same.
