Peruvian weather isn't uniform. It varies depending on where you are. In the jungle it may be warmer while in the mountains or by the coast you can find cooler weather.
As a result, calculating the best time to visit the country isn’t always easy. But here are a few pointers.
For sightseeing and hiking, May to September is the country's dry season. It also tends to be quieter in terms of tourism as it's the country's winter.
If you're headed to Peru for its beaches, then summer – November to March – is the best time for sunbaking and swimming in the sea.
Summer and rainy season pretty much go hand in hand in the Peruvian highlands and the Amazon. Both last from December to early March, give or take a few weeks.
Dry season, AKA winter, falls between May and September. Temperatures at this time of year aren’t exactly cold though, sporting average highs of around 20°C. This is lower in parts of the mountains where the mercury can fall to 4°C.
In Cusco, lows hover around 8°C and there are plenty of llama wool hats and gloves on sale if you feel too chilly.
Rain or shine, it's hot in the rainforest all year round. The average low doesn’t tend to sink below 22°C.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.

If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category.

When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
