As everyone knows the climate in tropical areas is extremely variable from day to night. In Latin America, there are several places that perfectly fit this description but none of them can be compared to the Amazon Rainforest, an ever-changing natural spectacle with exotic landscapes where there is no time to get bored.
Local people define their climate as a combination of rain, heat, more heat, and probably more rain. For decades, it has been really hard for weather experts to mark precise or steady seasons according to precipitation and changes in temperature during the year. Nevertheless, there is a year-round pattern that seems to be a reliable climate data:
It is important to highlight that the whole year is considered a ‘rainy season’ with slight changes to ‘less rainy season’:
January and February: are the closest to a ‘dry season’ when compared to the rest of the year, however it does not mean that it gets arid or semi-arid. March through July: the rain becomes more and more frequent. From August to November: the rain gets heavier, from cool rainstorms to downpours. And December is called the ‘fluctuation month’ where anything could happen.
Even if some months are a little more stable than others, the climate in this magical place is still unpredictable. The best option is to be prepared for adventuring in all kinds of weather since in the Amazon there are no specific dry or rainy seasons. Anyway, most tourists say it is better not to trust generalizations because any day could be the perfect moment to plan a family trip or take a luxury cruise in the Amazon.
This impeccable contrast of humidity, warmth and freshness provides an amazing environment for wildlife habitat. During the less rainy seasons or ‘dry season’ the water level decreases which is a great opportunity to appreciate the wonderful blooming flora being blessed by the sunlight. It is also feasible to look at a wide range of colorful species coming to the surface looking for water and food. Whether you prefer bird watching, playing with dolphins or chasing crocodiles, the local fauna would never disappoint you.
In Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest, an ordinary day can be hot and humid, but all of a sudden a cold storm can happen, at any time during any season. Surprisingly, in this tropical jungle, it is possible that during the morning it is warm and sunny, while at night the weather can be a little cooler. We guarantee an extraordinary experience where nature will definitely show you all her true colors during your stay so pack your stuff and prepare for the unexpected.
