3D / 2N


The word “Iquito” contains the prefix ik-, which means river, lagoon, well, although it also means separation, remoteness. Etymologically, by combining the two meanings, you get: «Crowd separated by the waters». Iquitos is a fantastic city to visit at all times of the year but if you’re sensitive to hot temperatures, you may want to miss the hottest months of September, October and November. However, many people find these months an enjoyable time to visit. On average, temperature in the day goes up to around 32°C (90°F) and falls back down to about 22°C (72°F) at night.

There is a slight difference between the wetter and drier months, but this is only by one or two degrees with the wetter season being slightly hotter. The temperature is usually pleasant from day to day and warms to its daily maximum around noon. This means you can enjoy some of the top Iquitos Amazon River tours at all times of year, but there are some differences.

We’re in the tropics so there isn’t a normal cycle of seasons and instead you will experience just a wet and dry season, but if you want to get really accurate, there isn’t even a dry season in Iquitos. As with other tropical areas, the water is drawn up into the clouds throughout the morning (mid- morning convection) and then drops back down in the late afternoon and sometimes throughout the night. This usually clears up by the following morning for a sunny day.


LOCATION: Province of Maynas and the department of Loreto.
