Amazon Weather

It is hot and humid throughout the year. The temperature varies between 21oC/70oF and 42oC/108oF, 28oC/82oF being the average. It rains constantly, so flooding is a common occurrence. Light, comfortable clothes and shoes are the order of the day.


Victoriai Regia
Origin of the Name

The Amazon – Amazonas, in Portuguese, was named by Francisco Orellana, one of its first explorers. On the river shore, he saw female Indian warriors and erroneously thought them to be ancient warriors of Greek mythology.

Amazon Travel Tips

Respect for nature is on
demand. Brazil is trying to promote sustainable development for the Amazon. The natural tourism, ecotourism and the alike are ways of achieving this goal. When considering Brazil travel, the rainforest is one of the top destinations.

So please, do not bring anything from the forest; do not throw anything in the forest; leave the plants, fruits and stones where they are. Take with you only pictures and, most importantly, memories of a unique vacation. The Brazilian Amazon rainforest will appreciate it. One last advice: have a super time!
