When is the best time to visit the Brazilian Amazon? That is a question that gets asked a lot.
Since the area is so close to the equator, the temperature does not very much throughout the year. In the Manaus area, the rainy season is roughly mid-December till mid-May.
But the "dry" season does not mean that it does not rain then - it just means that it rains a little less often. It can rain at any time of the year, usually in the afternoon for a few hours. And weather patterns have been shifting, just like everywhere else
Water levels traditionally peak in the Tefe Brazil area around June or July and rise in the Manaus area later in the year, as the water makes it's way east. The river levels can vary by about 50 feet between low and high water seasons. Peak water level time for Amazon trips in Brazil is different than for Peru.
But going in the rainy season can have it's advantages. Since most riverine plants fruit and flower during this period, it is one of the best times to see birds and monkeys at the waters edge. It is also good for canoeing and kayaking.
The dry/low water season is best for hiking, camping and fishing.
But you can enjoy doing an amazon rainforest tour almost any time!
