CLIMATE IN THE AMAZON – WHEN TO GO

During the flooding season, from January to June, the water level rises, flooding the forest. When the trails are flooded, we can travel in canoes, providing an intimate experience with the nature around. As soon as the water is getting elevated, we will be closer to the tree canopies and see the animals that share their space with bromeliads and small reptiles. In the dry season, from July to December, the trails can be covered on foot in small groups that are always accompanied by local guides and we can see the rich flora of the Amazon and get a closer sightseeing of the “sumaúma”, the biggest tree in the region. The rains’ season begins in December and this is when the waters begin to rise and the temperature is milder. It is worth witness the famous Amazonian rain, which is nothing but a memorable experience. In mid-March, the waters have already risen and the forest gets flooded. This is when the “ribeirinhos” begin with the manioc’s harvest to prepare the flour. For the ones who loves some tranquility, this is the low season for tourism in the Amazon.
