The dry season in The Amazon runs from July to December. This period features intense heat and humidity but relatively limited precipitation. Water levels in lakes and rivers recede during these months, exposing trails and beaches while cutting down on the number of mosquitoes. The dry season is the best time to visit the Amazon if hiking or fishing is what’s most important. The wet season spans January to June. Heavy rains contribute to high water levels and flooded forests. Intermittent showers occur nearly every day, so you should expect to get soaked on a regular basis. On the positive side, the rainy season provides better boat access to wetlands and temporarily flooded forests. This makes it easier to cover greater distances on boat tours and see more wildlife in otherwise inaccessible areas. The wet season also offers slightly cooler temperatures, although the uncomfortable humidity remains.
