Winters are ideal for travelling within Peru. Dry and mild, and with an average temperature of 16 °C, winters are perfect for planning a vacation. The season begins at the end days of May and remains so until the end of September. Some of the most popular festivals like the Feast of the Virgin of Carmen and Inti Raymi are also celebrated during these months.
The low-season in Peru starts with the beginning of the summer season. Summer in Peru stretches from December to March, sometimes April, and is characterized by frequent rainfalls. An overall damp climate makes it difficult to plan daytrips and treks. Flight and accommodation costs drop significantly during these months.
