What is the best time to visit Peru?

Everyone wants to know what the best time to visit Peru is, so let’s start with the good news: you can travel to Peru all year! The key is to know what you want: sun, a typical atmosphere trip to Peru without tourist crowds, small price … You decide!

First, notice that we are in the southern hemisphere, and winter and summer are reversed compared to Europe and North America. Then there is an important thing to know about the geography and climate when choosing to do a tour in Peru: the country is divided into three distinct geographical areas and the climate is not the same everywhere.

– The coast: the hottest months are December, January, February, where it is between 25 and 30 ° C. The cooler months are June, July, August, but our winter temperatures have nothing comparable with European or Canadian winters, they are around 15 to 20 ° C. Winters on the Peruvian coast are also characterized by a persistent haze.

– The Altiplano: a wonderful area to explore on a trip to Peru … If you want to discover it in its most beautiful pageantry, then plan your trip between April and November. From december to march, it is the rainy season, but do not dismiss this low season too quickly since you might have great advantages, for exemple, rates are lower than in the high season and destinaations are less crowded. 

– The Amazon: here, the rainy season (December to March) must be avoided because when it rains, it’s really intense. During dry season,  the Amazon experiences high temperatures (30 °C) but do not detract from the beauty.

Whether the dry season or the rainy season, we will do our best to propose you an authentic experience!
