Best Time To Travel To Peru
We recommend traveling anytime from May to October as it will be the driest months and pleasant temperatures around most of the country; however, you will run into more people as it also is the high tourist season. Peru has it all: coastal desert, mountains, and rainforests, but with that comes all sorts of different climates at different times of the year.
The Amazon will always be hot regardless of the time of year and the Andes will be rainy during the winter but in the summer you will find warm temperatures during the day and cool temperatures during the evening. On the coast you will find your normal coastal temperatures, mild; however, from June to September, Lima is surrounded in a mist due to its location in a valley. To see the city best, and experience the most of the coast, visit from January to March.
Whether you want to surf some sand dunes, hike to Machu Picchu, or visit the rainbow mountain where you’ll look in wonder at how a mountain could be so colorful. Drink some Pisco whilst cruising Lake Titicaca, try some local Lomo Saltado or Cuy, and fly over the infamous Nazca Lines. Peru is truly a stunning country you have to visit.
- High Season: May to October
- Low Season: January to February
