The Amazon is a great place to visit year round, but May is the best month as it is the transitional period between the wet and slightly drier season, and offers the best opportunities for wildlife viewing.
Along with Peru, Brazil, Colombia and Ecuador, the Amazon is also in Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana.
The Amazon is generally very warm year round, with average temperatures of between 22 and 34°C.
Although it is possible to visit parts of the Amazon without a guide, this is not recommended as it is extremely unsafe and easy to get lost.
