Particularly if you intend to embark on a trek, the dry season from May to October is the most favorable time to visit Peru. It is an exceptional time, with clear blue skies and sunny days, but reservations must be made in advance due to the prime season.

WHAT ARE THE SEASONS IN PERU?

DRY SEASON: APRIL - OCTOBER

Temperatures during the dry season in Peru may be anywhere from mild to very scorching. The highlands maintain a constant temperate temperature year-round, but the seaside may reach uncomfortable highs. The highlands get temperatures of 10-25 degrees Celsius, while the seaside sees temperatures of 15-30 degrees Celsius. It rains, on average, barely 5 millimeters per month during this time everywhere in the country. Packing rain gear just in case is a good idea if you're planning a trip during this period!

RAINY SEASON: NOVEMBER – MARCH

Temperatures in Peru are greater during the rainy season than they are during the dry season. The highlands have year-round temperatures of 10-25°C, whereas the coast experiences year-round temperatures of 25-30°C, with occasional drops into the single digits during wet times. The average monthly rainfall in Peru is between 20 and 200 millimeters, however this can vary greatly around the country.

DESTINATIONS TO VISIT DURING THE DRY SEASON

MACHU PICCHU

The historic Incan fortress of Machu Picchu, one of Peru's most popular tourist destinations, can be accessed from Cusco by rail or bus. Travelers might enjoy less congestion and less time pressure during the dry season.

LAKE TITICACA

The altitude of Lake Titicaca, which is 12,500 feet above sea level, is home to a number of tiny islands, each of which is populated with communities and ancient monuments.

PARACAS and NAZCA LINES

This natural reserve is situated immediately to the south of Lima and is characterized by its stunning environment, which includes sand dunes, rocky shoreline, and dense woods. Even though the ideal times of day to observe animals are early in the morning or late in the evening, there are lots of other sports, such as sandboarding and kayaking, that may be enjoyed at any point in the day throughout the dry season months.

DESTINATIONS TO VISIT DURING THE RAINY SEASON

MANU BIOSPHERE

Manu National Park is a fantastic location for those who enjoy animals and those who are interested in nature. It is home to some of the most ecologically varied areas in the world. Because the rainy season offers beautiful green landscapes and an abundance of animals, it is a perfect time to spot a wide variety of species because it is easier to detect them.

COLCA CANYON

This canyon is twice as deep as the Grand Canyon and is loaded with archaeological remains from pre-Incan cultures. It can be found in the southern highlands of Peru. Because to its closeness to the Pacific Ocean, temperatures are relatively mild for the majority of the year in this region, despite the fact that it is situated more than 4,000 meters above sea level.

AMAZON RAINFOREST

Although the majority of the Amazon rainforest receives more precipitation throughout the rainy months, the area of the Amazon rainforest that is located in Peru remains relatively dry until December, when it then begins to steadily grow during the following months. Because of this, the winter months are the best time to go canoeing or trekking through this enormous rainforest region so that you may see animals. Regardless of the season, Peru has plenty to offer every tourist interested in seeing its distinct culture and breathtaking environment. Whether you intend to travel during the dry season or the wet season, you can be confident that your vacation will be packed with lifelong experiences!
