Best time to visit Peru

Peru has a great geographic diversity and different climates in all regions, determined by its altitude and seasons, here is a summary of the weather by region:

• On the coast: the southern summer (from November to April) has high temperatures; the winter is freshly (but never cold) and with early mists.

• In the Andes and Amazonia, there are two mean seasons: the dry season (from May to October) and the rainy season (from November to April). If it is possible to travel in the Andean region during the rainy season, it is however disadvised to go hiking in mountain, where the paths become dangerous by the snowfalls.

• In the Andes, the weather can be very changeable during the same day. We recommend you to bring with you various clothes, warm for the fresh evenings, lighter for the sunny days, and a rainy coat.

Peru being very close to the equator, the sun is there vertical and strong. This phenomenon is widely amplified by the height. Do not forget to bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen with a strong protection factor.
