Throughout the year, the Amazon landscape changes considerably, mainly due to the influence of rivers and water levels, basically varying between two fixed seasons - extreme summer and extreme winter - in the first one, the rains usually give more respite, while in the second season, the rains constants leave the air humidity with high levels, allowing a more pleasant climate while the level of the rivers rises gradually.

Both periods present surprising landscapes, however, they have their own characteristics, being basically, from February to May the rainy season, where the animals are even more active, and the small arms of rivers and canals are also accessible by canoe.

In between June and September, the rains have stopped, but the rivers reach their maximum height before the flow due to the rains. At this time it is possible to navigate in canoes and small boats at the height of the treetops, since the level of the floods reach great heights and practically fills the arms of rivers and streams. This is also the time when most animals reproduce.

In October to November is the low season for the rivers, this is the period of greatest low water level, where numerous beaches with white sand and fresh water also appear, in different parts of the forest. Due to the constant fluctuation of the level of these rivers, most of the riverside dwellings are in floating houses, which follow the height of the river according to these variations.

And lastly, from december to february when the rainy season starts again, the river levels gradually rise, flooding again part of the forest and covering the sandbanks and some freshwater beaches, after the height of summer, the reproduction period of some species begins again.
