AMAZON PERU BEST TIME TO VISIT

The Amazon basin is so varied and exuberant due to the large amount of rain it receives, in a typical year, the Amazon forest has 200 days of rain

The Amazon River has, basically, two seasons: one rainy (from December to May) and another one of summer (from June to November). Traveling to Peru in any of these seasons offers great rewards, fabulous sites and unique opportunities to observe flora and fauna … and a warm climate with some rain here and there.

Two key points to remember while choosing which season to visit Peru and the Amazon River: there will always be some rain whatever the season you choose, and you will always be able to observe spectacular flora and fauna, be it in the wet season or in the dry season. The Amazon basin is so varied and exuberant due to the large amount of rain it receives (3,600 mm per year on average). In a typical year, the Amazon forest has 200 days of rain, which means that there will be days of intense rain even in the dry season.
