BEST TIME TO VISIT PERUVIAN AMAZON RAINFOREST

The weather of Peruvian Amazon Rainforest is generally warm with some rain at any time of the year. If you are planning to explore the Amazon rainforest at its most exuberant and getting close to a lot of Amazon wildlife. The best season to visit Peruvian Amazon Rainforest is from May to November. In the dry season you can access lakes, bird and animal clay licks, and jungle paths, allowing our groups to explore much more easily.

The rainy season in Peru (from December through April) is relatively cooler and wetter. This is the season with the most abundant rainfall causing fast moving rivers impossible for our boats. In some sectors of the Manu National Park will occur landslides. The probabilities to observe the wildlife is minimum: cause the beaches disappear under the water, and the jaguar, capybara, alligators, giant ant eaters or even turtles, retreat far away into the forest. Additionally, the Amazon Rainforest becomes very muddy and inundated with so much water running throughout, paths can impassable.

What to expect from our

Amazon Tours

Feel the restorative power of nature, relax your mind in a place full of energy and life, disconnect from the fast-paced frenzy of everyday life.

DO I NEED ANY VACCINATIONS BEFORE VISITING AMAZON RAINFOREST?

 Andean Great Treks

Vaccines recommended for travelers to the Amazon often include hepatitis A and B, typhoid, and yellow fever. Visit your doctor four to six weeks before your trip for the latest recommendations and requirements for your destination. You may be advised to start taking malaria pills around this time.

The US Center for Disease Control is an excellent resource for detailed information on preventing travel related illnesses.

IS THE AMAZON RAINFOREST SAFE?

 Andean Great Treks

To stay safe in the Amazon, travelers should eat sensibly, dress appropriately and apply repellent to minimize the chance of getting bitten by mosquitos, and take the necessary vaccinations, medication and precautions as recommended by your doctor.

When hiking, canoeing, and enjoying other jungle activities you should always stay with your group and follow your guide’s advice. We also recommend that you leave valuable jewelry, watches and electronics at home, and where possible use a money belt and any room safes at your disposal to store passports and important documents.

WHAT SHOULD I PACK?

 Andean Great Treks

Bring comfortable walking shoes, light-weight long pants, and long-sleeved tops, a wide-brimmed hat, sunscreen, extra socks, mosquito repellent with DEET, bathing suits and of course, waterproof ponchos with hoods to protect against rain your camera, with charger and extra batteries on excursions. Binoculars are very important to enjoy the wildlife. Do not forget to include some items that you can give away to the locals (t-shirts, pens, and paper are especially prized, and perhaps some chocolates or candies for little kids). During meals in the dining room, we ask our guests to wear casual clothing and shoes. We provide rubber boots for wetland excursions and wet landings, and recommend taking comfortable walking shoes.

SHOULD I BUY TRAVEL INSURANCE?

 Andean Great Treks

Travelers are strongly advised to purchase trip cancellation insurance which will reimburse the cost of air tickets and other non-refundable trip payments. International medical, baggage loss, and delay insurance are also recommended. Unfortunately, if you miss the Amazon tour because of a weather-related flight cancellation, we will not reimburse the cost of the reservation since flight cancellations are beyond our control and we have to comply with our schedules.

AMAZON RAINFOREST TOURS FAQs

DO I NEED A VISA TO TRAVEL TO THE AMAZON?

To enter the countries in the Amazon Rainforest, you will need a valid passport. However, visitors from most countries do not need a visa, provided their visit will be shorter than 90 days. If you plan to stay longer, you will need to request a visa in your home country.

IS THE CUISINE AS GOOD AS I’VE BEEN TOLD? CAN I GET A SPECIAL DIET?

Yes. The food is simply world class. Our guests enjoy a menu of fresh, delicious Peruvian fare (with a bit of continental influence). Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner each day promises to be a culinary feast for the senses, paired with select South American wines or perhaps a freshly pressed juice. If you have special dietary requests, please inform Andean Great Treks at the time of booking, or at least by 30 days prior to start the Amazon Tours, because some items may have to be ordered from local markets in advance. Every effort will be made to cater to special dietary needs and to accommodate special requests, subject to a given products’ availability in Peru.

IS IT EASY TO SPOT WILDLIFE IN THE AMAZON RAINFOREST TOURS?

Amazon wildlife is abundant, but you have to know where to look. Many creatures are weary of humans and often camouflaged. Our expert naturalist guides will help you spot and identify animals with their local knowledge, tracking experience, and remarkable eagle-eyesight and trained ears.

Many can even mimic bird and monkey calls to attract them! In general, the longer you spend in the region and deeper you can travel into the rainforest, the more chance of spotting wildlife you see. A decent set of binoculars will also go a long way to help.

ARE THERE MORE NATURAL WAYS TO COMBAT MOSQUITOES AND INSECTS?

Taking vitamin B12 is a more natural way to gain some resistance to mosquitoes. It can be ingested as vitamin pills or found in some foods with high levels of B12 such as shellfish (clams, oysters, mussels), fish, crustaceans (crabs), soy products (milk, tofu), bran cereals, red meat (lamb, beef), low fat milk, select cheeses, and eggs. We suggest taking B12 supplements around 2-3 weeks before arriving in Amazon Rainforest.

DO YOU WELCOME FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN?

Yes. We warmly welcome families with children aged 7 or older. Our lodges are comfortable to receive families with their children. Additional accommodation for one child is available in some Lodges. Our naturalist guides are very friendly with kids and all of our staff will provide the necessary care for your family. We also have survivor jungle trails, piranha catch-and-release fishing experiences in Iquitos, and meal menus for kids.
