It is important to mention that the activities described above can be changed because of environmental factors, water level variation and climate conditions.
Due to its proximity with the Equador, the Amazon region has only two defined seasons: the rainy season (from December to May) and the dry season (from June to November). In either one, the heat and humidity will be firmly present.
