See pink river dolphins navigating the waters, and watch as endangered manatees are cared for at the Manatee Rescue Center.

Experience life along the river with visits to traditional villages whose inhabitants find sustenance by the bounty of the jungle and the river that feeds it.

The only thing predictable about Peru’s weather is its unpredictability. In fact, it’s not uncommon to experience all four seasons in a single day. Generally speaking, Peru has two seasons, wet and dry, but in a country as geographically diverse as Peru, local weather patterns vary greatly. In the highlands, the dry season is between June and October. The desert coast is arid. From January to March the sky is clear and the air tends to be hot and sticky. Peruvians go to the beach at this time.
The rest of the year the gray coastal mist known as garua moves in. The Amazon experiences rain, heat and more rain and heat – the wettest months are December through May, but even then, it rarely rains for more than a few hours at a time and the water levels are high, meaning you do more boat activities, as opposed to the dry month when you can do more trekking.
