All year round destination. The climate is hot and humid throughout the whole year. Between June and November, it rains less (although it is a tropical rainforest and therefore can rain at any time) and it is hotter. From December to May the rainfall is more intense and the water levels increase and large marshlands form both in the archipelago and on the mainland. The flooded land reaches the highest levels between March and April and the lowest between August and October. When the land is flooded, more areas can be accessed by boat however during the 'drier' season beaches are formed along the archipelago and there is more chance to see wildlife such as caiman and capybaras on the river banks.
