There are several ways to see the wonders of the Amazon: hotels, lodges and boat tours. Goway considers that the best way to see and enjoy nature, especially on the amazing waterways of the Amazon, is to be agile in this wonderful environment and to be always in the midst of the jungle, especially at dawn and dusk. That is on the River and that is on one of the many vessels Goway offers.

The Premium vessel (in house 4 star rating) is the perfect choice for those seeking a bit more common area space as well as a larger group environment.

WHEN TO VISIT THE BRAZILIAN AMAZON

The high season, with more tourists, are July-September and December-January. These periods are within the low water season (July-February), and have significant advantages for your Amazon tours: less rain, less mosquitoes, easier observation of aquatic life in lakes, better time for fishing or swimming.

But there are some disadvantages also: temperatures are higher (especially before December), some waterways are more clogged with vegetation, limiting access to wildlife zones; the forest life is less visible except for aquatic life in isolated lakes (the best period for viewing wild life, in Manaus region, is March - June; this is also a cooler period, and a nicer one for your Amazon tours: waterside plants such as acacias, morning glories, or cecropias, flourish at these months.

Some people prefer transitional periods (October and November; and May and June, in the region of Manaus), where you may have some advantages of the rainy and the dryer periods. But there aren't true rules on that issue. For most people, the more determinant factor is the rain. December to May period can have many rainy days, and that can spoil many planned Amazon tours.
