Where to go when - our guide to The Colombian Amazon

Sunset in the Amazon

The weather in The Colombian Amazon is wide and varied

While much of the Colombian Amazon is inaccessible, you can visit the jumbly river port of Leticia and the charming eco-village of Puerto Nariño at any time of year. Here the seasons are split roughly in two, with the rainier season from Dec - Jun and the drier season Jul - Nov. During the rainier season, water levels in the rivers are high and many areas of the jungle flood. While some walking trails become inaccessible, you’ll have the chance to kayak through flooded parts of the rainforest. Temperatures at this time are hot, often over 30°C, and humidity is high. During the drier season the water levels lower, particularly in September - November, and there are fewer mosquitos. Most trails will now be accessible so you can hike further into the jungle, and chances of wildlife spotting are best this time of year. Temperatures are sweltering, sometimes over 40°C in the strong sun.
