Peru is the cradle of South American civilization, a magnificent destination, full of history, nature, adventure, and unique characters to meet. Immerse yourself in the rich legacy of ancient fortresses and palaces; explore deserts filled with dunes that face one of the world’s most fertile oceans; delve into the lush rainforest, pulsing with the sounds of crickets, monkeys, and jaguars; and marvel at the awe-inspiring beauty of the Andes mountains and their sacred peaks.

Peru has three main geographic regions: Pacific Coast, Andes Highlands and Amazon Rainforest and this is why you will find a wide variety of climate conditions. However, Peru is a year-round destination.  In general, the best time to visit Peru is during the dry season, between April and October, which offers bright days in the Andes, making it perfect for outdoor activities, particularly treks. When it comes to the Amazon rainforest, the best time to visit depends on your specific interests and travel plans. The high-water season runs from December to May, while the low-water season occurs from June to November. Both seasons offer unique experiences and feature differences in the plant and animal wildlife.
