weather in the jungle
Tropical vegetation zone of the Amazon River basin, which houses the largest nature reserves.
The vast Peruvian jungle, bisected by the mighty Amazon River can be divided into two very distinct areas: the high jungle or mountain brow (above 700 m) which has a subtropical and temperate, with abundant rainfall (about 3000 mm per year) between November and March and sunny days from April to October, and the lowland (below 700 m) where the dry season occurs between April and October and is an ideal time for tourism, with sunshine and high temperatures, often above 35 ° C.
Between the months of April and October the river levels dip and roads are easily passable. The rainy season however, between November and March, features frequent rain showers (at least one per day) that may cause damage to the terrestrial paths. The humidity in the jungle is very high throughout the year.
In the south there are occasional "cold fronts" or "surazos" cold fronts from the south end of the continent that occur between the months of May and August, when temperatures can drop to 8-12 ° C.
CuscoPeru.com recommends visiting the Peruvian jungle as the weather is hot and humid relatively constant throughout the year. The normal high temperature for the day is 31 ° C, the lowest at night is 17 ° C and humidity can be between 80-90%.
