Puerto Maldonado weather is divided into two main seasons; the dry season through the months of May to September, and the wet season October to April.
Temperature highs can reach 91 degrees Fahrenheit (32 Deg. C) throughout the day, and nighttime temperatures can fall to lows of 63 degrees Fahrenheit (18 Deg. C). Through the wetter months, there’s an increased degree of mosquitos in the jungle, and activities like hiking are best done through the dry season.
The Puerto Maldonado weather on average is similar to that of any typical tropical rainforest. It really is hot and humid. In the former, the rains are about 59-179 inches within the non-rainy seasons; the rains could be between 31-99 inches. The rains start in the same way suddenly because they stop.
The primary months of the rainy season are December through March.
How is Puerto Maldonado weather changing? The Amazon rainforest is known by rain, heat, and much more rain and heat, providing an ideal environment for vegetation and wildlife. The Amazon is definitely humid with generous levels of rain occurring year round. Both rainy and “rainier” seasons are excellent times to go to. The season with rain can be viewed as a prime time and energy to visit because there is commonly an increased quantity of animal activity that is desired for wildlife spotting.
That is because of that proven fact that a rise in rain brings higher degrees of fruit production, meaning that many species (including monkeys, fruit-eating birds, tapirs, caimans) tend to be more active and commence their reproductive cycles. The best time to see the wildlife animal spotting in this part of the world is mainly on pure luck!
*Some of the North American and European travel agencies recommend for you to have vaccinations for yellow fever or Malaria, but here at the national park, they reported that none of these have been reported in the last ten years, Peruvian government take so much care to prevent and/or control it right away.
Good mosquito repellent needed with high Deet.
