When is the best time to visit Peru?

Due to its position near the equator, Peru’s weather is remarkably temperate throughout the year. That being said, the only two “seasons” that Peru experiences are its drier and slightly wetter portions of the year.

These two distinct seasons are quite varied in each region of the country, so it’s worth looking into them (or better yet, simply asking our destination experts!) to nail the ideal time to plan your Peru trip.

What makes Peru stand out from the rest of Latin American countries?

Peru has one of the densest indigenous populations in South America, which plays a special role in exemplifying and even celebrating the unique human history that the country has been home to. You won’t be disappointed when you experience these cultures firsthand, as they are rich and inviting with extraordinary traditions and beliefs.  

Additionally, Peru is home to a plethora of UNESCO World Heritage Sites (13 in total), the most renowned of which is the unmissable Machu Picchu Citadel. Along with these, the country’s numerous, diverse regions offer an eclectic menu of tour experiences and provide a beautiful window into the varied geography of South America.  

Why visit Machu Picchu?

Sitting among the Top 10 Most Beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the World is Machu Picchu, and understandably so—its intricate and mesmerizing network of ruins that stands atop a beautiful mountainside never fails to impress! Visitors that embark on a journey here will come away with a soul-stirring exploration of the fascinating history of the Incas and the beauty of our planet. 

Machu Picchu is, simply put, a part of your Peru trip that you won’t want to leave out.

Our custom trip to Quito, the Galapagos and Mashpi Lodge was incredible, one of the best we've ever taken as a family. It took a lot of planning and we tend to be particular but Diego made adjustment after adjustment until we were happy.
