Best time to visit the Ecuadorian Amazon

The Amazon in Ecuador is hot, humid and wet all year. It is particularly wet in from April through September. The rains have a cooling, cleansing and refreshing effect on the otherwise heavy air so any time of year can be a great time to go. The season of October to March is usually drier but random cloudbursts can occur at any time. Temperatures average 26°C to highs of 35°C and above occasionally.

The best time to visit the Amazon region is in June, July and August when animal life thrives in the jungle. However you can generally expect to have hot and rainy weather regardless of when you are going.
