Best Time to Visit the Amazon Rainforest

Best Time to Visit the Amazon Rainforest

The best time to visit the Amazon rainforest in Peru is between June and September. The mosquito population, while ever-present, is smaller.In addition, the months of June through September are considered the “dry season,” although humidity is high all year long.

During the dry season, it is also easier to spot birds and animals as they congregate along the banks of the river to drink. The Amazon is home to more than 1,300 species of birds and thousands of species of animals and plants.

A visit to the Amazon can be a perfect way to begin or end your vacation in Peru. Life in the Amazon moves at a slow pace. And, access to the outside world via technology is not always readily available. “Disappearing” into the Amazon for a few days can be the perfect way to disconnect and decompress.
