Peru Amazon Guide

Discover Peru’s Amazon Rainforest

Containing the second-largest amount of Amazonian jungle (after Brazil), the Peruvian rainforest offers an abundance of breathtaking scenery, amazing wildlife, and memorable experiences.

Because of its tropical climate, temperatures in the Amazon remain high throughout the year. In general, the driest months are June, July, and August, but even during the wet season (November to April), the increase in rainfall is not that significant.

How to Get to the Amazon Jungle

In Peru, you can get to the Amazon through the city of Iquitos, the Manu Amazon Region, or the Tambopata National Park. By far, the Iquitos region is the most popular starting point for visiting the jungle: It’s one of the only places where you can sail down the Amazon River and visit native communities. 

Located in Peru’s northeastern Amazon, the only way to reach Iquitos is by plane or boat. Most travelers fly in from Lima or Cusco (after their adventures through Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley). Alternatively, visitors can take a 2- to 4-day boat ride from either Pucallpa or Yurimaguas.

Vaccines and Health Precautions

No specific vaccinations are required when traveling to Peru. However, some people prefer getting a yellow fever vaccination before going to the Amazon jungle. It is advised, however, to schedule a check-up and discuss your travel itinerary with your physician. Taking out comprehensive travel insurance is also recommended. 

 

Packing List

When packing for the Amazon Jungle in Peru, make sure you include light cotton clothing, a rain poncho, a windproof jacket, and moisture-resistant shoes. Other essentials to bring along are high SPF sunscreen, first aid kit, sunglasses, insect repellent, a flashlight, and binoculars.
