The best time to travel to the Amazon is throughout the year, with a rainy season between December to April. All our programs enter the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve in the department of Loreto, the second largest protected natural area in Peru. The reserve is the house of unique animal species from the Amazon such as the pink river dolphin or the paiche, the biggest freshwater fish in the world, as well as monkeys and more than 400 species of birds. Thousands of plant are among the giant trees of the forest, many of them used for medicinal purposes by the communities that call Pacaya Samiria home.
The Peruvian jungle has hot and humid weather all year round. The highest temperature during the day reaches 87° F, the lowest during the night reaches 62° F and the humidity can be up to 80% to 90%.
