Where to go when - our guide to The Brazilian Amazon

Toucan Brazilian Amazon

The weather in The Brazilian Amazon is wide and varied

The vast, romantic wilderness of the Amazon basin teems with secretive wildlife and gushing rivers. Rain or shine, the region can be visited all year. January - May is the cooler, rainier season when you can sail amidst the igapós (flooded forests) by canoe. You’ll spot wildlife in the treetops and wild swimmers love this time of year. The driest, hottest time is August - November, the season of white-sand beaches and more possibilities for walking trails in the forest. September - November is good for spotting monkeys as there is lots of fruit in the trees. Boat trips can still be done on the main rivers and tributaries.
