When to Visit the Amazon
The Wet Season in the Amazon begins by late October and runs to early April. All of the lodges and cruises operate year-round so there's no need to be concerned if you can visit during this time. And hey, it's the rainforest, so rain is definitely something that can come with the territory during any visit. With a little help from lodge-provided rubber boots and ponchos, one might find the downpours an adventure. The balconies on the cruise ships can be covered so sipping a cocktail with a nice meal can still be done as if it were a nice sunny day.
Jaguar - Originally revered by native populations as a divine creature, the Jaguar is certainly the king of beasts in the jungle. It's strength and prowess enable it to take down just about any size prey from deer to caiman that's worth the effort. Unfortunately, due to prior commercial trading of its skin and current encroachment and destruction of its habitat, the jaguar is now considered a threatened species. Visitors to the Amazon that catch a glimpse of this jungle cat are considered especially fortunate.
