The sheer vastness of the Amazon basin which spans 9 countries and takes up 40% of the entire South American continent is staggering. The state of Amazonas in the Northwestern corner of Brazil is the country’s largest state and greater in size than France, Spain, Sweden and Greece combined! The isolated city of Manaus is the main starting point for trips to jungle lodges and cruises down the river but there are also some other lodges further south around Alta Floresta. With more species of plants and animals than anywhere on earth, the Amazon is an explorers dream!
Best Time To Visit The Brazilian Amazon
The Amazon can be visited all year round. Temperatures do not fluctuate much and it is always humid with a lot of rainfall. A good time to go, however, would be between June and November as this is the driest time of the year and humidity is at its lowest. You should, however, still expect daily rainfall. June is a particularly good month as the water level is at its highest but the rains have slowed.
