The Amazon Basin


The seasons are less pronounced here than in other parts of Bolivia, and temperatures are high year-round. Most of the rain falls during the summer in unrelenting downpours and, during wet times, the streets fill with mud and the sound of croaking frogs. Although winter is drier than summer, it also sees a good measure of precipitation. If you’re unlucky you may experience the unpredictable surazo, a cold wind blowing from Patagonia and the Argentine pampas, which produces a dramatic drop in temperature and frost even in the hottest parts of the jungle.
