The Amazon offers a wide variety of experiences all year round and at Manati Lodge we tailor our packages to suit the seasons and conditions.

There are two defined seasons in the jungle: rainy from December to May and dry from June to November.

From May to June the water levels are the highest and allow for cruising through submerged forests on a canoe, while dry season provides clear weather and many hiking and overland opportunities to explore the Amazon.
