Where to go when - our guide to Peru

Huaraz

The weather in Peru is wide and varied

Peru is an all-year destination, but its variety of landscapes from coastal plain to high Andes and lowland Amazon jungle means that the weather may be optimum for a visit at different times in the various locations. The rich Inca and Spanish colonial heritage is on show in a number of fiestas and other cultural events you may wish to factor into the timing of your holiday in Peru.

The mountainous region of the Andes, including Cusco, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and the trekking region of Huaraz and the Cordillera Blanca, is at its best from May to October, when the sun shines with just a little rain. December to April are the wetter months, however landscapes are greener, with fields full of crops. The region receives more foreign visitors in July and August; May and September are quieter. Religious-inspired fiestas abound, most notable the Inca festival of Inti Raymi on 24 June, Christmas and the moveable feast of Easter.

During the Amazon’s high water season (December to May) it’s easier to get round by boat and the cloud offers a protection from the strong sun. The somewhat hotter dry season (June to November) is sunnier and better for wildlife-spotting from jungle trails.

The coastal strip is mostly desert, warm and sunny all year, including the oases at Nazca and Arequipa with little precipitation. It is usually cool and misty in Lima from April to November, however outside this period the weather is pleasantly warm and sunny with plenty of life in the pavement cafés and bars.
