Thanks to this, they are the territory of dolphins, manatees, caimans, anacondas and otters, and of the tree guarango, and many more. It is one of the few charms that you can enjoy.
What travel season is the best option?
As all experts recommend, any trip will be better if you know in advance the possibilities and limitations that you will have in the chosen destination, in this special case of a trip to the Amazon.
In the “High” season, the rivers rise and flood the low banks. In this season you can expect between 60 and 180 millimeters of rain to fall in some places (a good time to appreciate the riverside plants of fruits and flowers), you will be able to observe birds and monkeys on the river bank.
A strange case is in the month of January, the rivers have less flow to the point of "almost" running dry and the lagoon can dry up. In this month you can see alligators on the sandy shores and nocturnal exploration.
On the other hand, in the “Low” season (December to February), the rivers have less flow and the sandy shores are broader, explorations and walks are the main activities.
But in both seasons it rains, although with different intensities, so we recommend that you take with you a waterproof sweater and easy-drying clothes.
Can you visit the indigenous communities?
During your stay in the Ecuadorian Amazon, you will have the opportunity to interact with the members of the Indigenous communities that inhabit the place, except, of course, with the uncontacted groups.
