Where to go when - our guide to The Amazon

Sunset in the Amazon

The weather in The Amazon is wide and varied

The lush, tangled Amazon rainforest stretches out across eight countries- Peru, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana- and shelters a vast array of beautiful, fragile species. Elusive, shy creatures such as jaguars, ocelots and tapirs can be difficult to spot, but capybaras, caimans, spider monkeys and colourful birds are plentiful. Wherever you visit, be that Bolivia’s Madidi National Park, Colombia’s quaint eco-village Puerto Nariño or Brazil’s elegant city Manaus, there tend to be only two main seasons. From roughly June - November is the dry season, with scorching temperatures, clearer skies and more easily accessible hiking trails. The wet season from December - May ushers in heavy rains which flood many parts of the rainforest, meaning you can explore by canoe and spot animals along the way.
