Easiest of temperature and precipitation (rain). Each month 100 mm
(4inches) of rain, rainfall usually never escapes the rainforest
environment. By the equator gets tons of sunlight.
The climate is typically tropical on the Amazon rainforest, which is
also called equatorial climate, reaching about 12 degrees north and
south of the line of Ecuador
Like all tropical climate is characterized by hot and humid all year
round. The average annual temperature in the 27 ° C (80.7 ° F).
There is no difference between summer and winter there, or at least not
pronounced, the annual temperature range is 2 ° C approximately.
In fact, the difference between day and night temperatures - 2 to 5 ° C
- is superior to the difference between the stations.
Actually the climate of the Amazon rainforest has no dry season, because
it rains all year round. What we do find is a rainy season and a less
rainy, ranging from 60-180 inches 30-100 inches of annual precipitation.
The ideal time to visit is perhaps is between March and June, the

The Peruvian Amazon is divided into two distinct ecoregions:
Selva Baja (Down forest), also known by the name of the Omagua
region, This ecoregion is the largest of Peru due to is raised from 80
to 400 msnm . It has a very warm climate; its average temperature is 28
º C, high relative humidity (over 75%) and plenty of rainfalls.
Selva Alta (high forest) is also called rupa-rupa, jungle or
Rainforest Mountain high. This ecoregion extends along the eastern
foothills of the Andes mountain range Between 400 to 1000 msnm. Its
temperatures are in the lower quality especially at the largest height.
The forest also counts with a variable climate:
Temperate rainforest. Located on the eastern slopes of the Andes.
Abundant rainfall in summer.
Warm humid climate. It covers the area north of latitude 12 ° south latitude,
Iquitos is the reference point-and that has high rainfall over 2,500 mm
annually, and high temperatures (25 ° C from January to September and 33 ° C or
more from October to December).
Semi warm periodically wet weather. It lies south of that parallel, especially
in Madre De Dios. It has an average annual rainfall of 2,000 mm and temperatures
of 24 ° C to 25 ° C with maximum temperatures between 33 ° C and minimum 16 ° C.
This minimum temperature may fall in the months of May through September, when
burst at the region, the winds of the South Atlantic anticyclone.
Similar to the mountain, the forest has two seasons, dry season from May to
October and rainy from November to April.
*In the dry season the weather is very warm day and night.
*The rainy season the humidity goes up but the nights are cool.
