OUR GUIDE TO the weather in the The Bolivian Amazon
In the steamy Amazon rainforest, weather conditions remain hot and humid all year round, temperatures hovering around 30°C. Bolivia’s Madidi National Park is a haven for wildlife, sheltering jaguars, ocelots and tapirs as well as the more easily visible capybaras, caimans, spider monkeys and colourful birds. Wet season runs from November - April, bringing heavier rainfall and opening up access to new parts of the jungle via boat. The sunny dry season from May - October is ideal for wildlife spotting from jungle trails, with vibrant local festivities taking place in June and July.
