Best Time to Go:
The Amazon experiences a rainy season from December to April and a drier season from May to November. The choice of when to go depends on your preference for weather and wildlife viewing. During the wet season, water levels rise, making it easier to explore smaller tributaries, while the dry season offers better hiking opportunities.
