The period of greatest humidity in the Amazon is from December to June, and from March to mid-May. That doesn’t mean it rains all the time and you will be able to enjoy mild temperatures between 25-30ºC and quieter vibes with fewer tourists. It is the time of the year when one can explore the forest on canoe and see more animals.
In February, the river begins to fill and runs until the end of June, when the igapós, stretches of flooded land, form. This is a great opportunity to tour the Canal do Jari, a narrow branch of the Amazon River. Many of the streams and igapós are covered by giant water lilies. The beaches are more restricted to the banks of the river.
The dry season, from July to January, is more famous for revealing the white sandbanks on the river bed.
