What is the best season to travel?

Are you dreaming of a trip to the Ecuadorian Amazon, but not sure when is the best time to go? Don't worry, we've got you covered!

The Ecuadorian Amazon is a breathtaking destination that can be visited year-round. However, the best time to travel depends on your personal preferences and what you want to experience during your trip.

Sunset in the Amazon river

If you're looking to see the most wildlife, the best time to visit is during the dry season, which runs from June to November. During this time, the rivers are lower, making it easier to spot animals such as monkeys, birds, and even jaguars. The weather is also cooler and less humid, making it more comfortable for hiking and other outdoor activities.

On the other hand, if you want to experience the lush greenery of the rainforest, the best time to visit is during the wet season, which runs from December to May. The rainforest is at its most vibrant during this time, and the rivers are higher, allowing for activities like canoeing and kayaking. The wet season is also a great time for birdwatching, as many species come to the area to breed.

It's worth noting that the Amazon is a tropical rainforest, which means that rain can occur at any time of the year. However, during the wet season, you can expect heavier and more frequent rainfall.
