What is the best time of year to come to the Santuario Huishtin?
The weather in this area of the Amazon is pretty consistent year-round with a mix of sunshine, clouds, occasional rain and thunderstorms, and hot humid air in the day, cooling down quite a bit a night. January-June is considered the rainy season here so it tends to be a bit cooler, with more frequent rains (but sunny days nonetheless). There are generally more mosquitos during the rainy season. The mosquitoes and rain subside a bit in June-December with hotter temperatures, though thunderstorms are still a common occurrence. Regardless of when you come, we recommend coming prepared for all conditions as the temperatures/conditions can vary greatly from day to day and week to week and there is no way to predict this. Please ensure you have lightweight long sleeve shirts and pants and clothes appropriate for the heat during the day, a warm sweater or sweatshirt and warm socks for at night, and rain gear.
